The accompanying DVD is mostly a follow Dean about for a day in China piece and a bit too self promotional to watch more than once. BUT in the techniques chapters, there are a few baking techniques (like using your hand to do the final mix in of flour for a genoise sponge cake) that are fantastic to see demonstrated (and are not written about in the book).
Most of the ingredients are readily available although a few will require more adventerous shopping.
This is not a great introduction to baking. What it does offer is some ideas on how to take basics into new flavor territory.
The Amazon price seems good. I paid $AUD50 a couple of months ago for this as a paperback in a local Australian bookstore.
