The book is brief, at only 15 recipes or so. In some ways that's almost better. It's easy to get some ideas but not be overwhelmed.
I've docked it two stars for the lack of photos and the overall approach of doing this as an ebook rather than as a dedicated app (at least for the iPad/Android crowd). There's just this expectation for nice, bright photos and easy navigation. I'd definitely prefer a dedicated recipe app for this with photos you touch to bring up the recipes. The ebook format is lifeless. Navigation is typical ebook-clunky, going back and forth to the table of contents. No marking recipes as favorites here (other than bookmarks). To see the extremes, flip through the iPad Epicurious app and then flip through this ebook.
In addition to novels, I've experimented with a Kindle travel guide and now this cookbook. The current ebook format is clearly not the future of digital cookbooks (or travel guides). The current ebook format is fine for novels, but not reference books.
