I couldn't disagree more. This is arguably one of the best Italian cookbooks ever. Ms Hazan is/was a legend in Italy. I have cooked over a dozen recipes and not one dud. Easy to follow. Who needs gastro porn pics? Try the ragu recipe for an authentic bollanaise which has to simmer for at least 3 hours and dare to tell me it's not out of this world.

Agreed. Her first book was a classic, and the second book was full of even more good things. And yes, the ragu is amazing...

If this reader wanted to look at pictures they should have bought a comic. Pictures of food in cookbooks have invariably been enhanced anyway.

If you're basing your opinion of a cookbook on the lack of pictures and the time it takes to arrive, I think you're missing the point of cooking. You should try some of the recipes first - if they don't work, then leave a negative review about that.
