It's a simple format: recipe to a page, nice easy instructions... the only minor note is that it seems like it may be American as I don't recognise some of the ingredients, but hey you can either guess or Google a near match and adapt accordingly.
I've been searching for a comprehensive breakfast book for quite a while now, and this ticks every box.
The frittata section alone makes this a worthwhile investment.

I will say if you have bacon or ham; bell pepper, mushrooms, eggs, cheese and potatoes, you can probably make 1/2 the recipes in this book. :)
