I was very excited when I bought this book. I thought it would be very interesting, I love to cook and I love to know how things work. I found that the only thing this book was useful for was putting me to sleep!
Each chapter would start out with a great topic and useful information but then would turn to the history and scientific explainations where my science degree didn't even help me. I was so confused by the end of the chapter that I didn't even know what I had heard. I believe if you are French or a World Class Chef, you may understand it and enjoy it.
I thought that I was an intelligent person, but this book made me feel very dumb because I just couldn't understand most of it. If you are looking for a great book to listen to to put you to sleep, this is the one. I put it on quite often and the sound of the narrator's voice and the big words I didn't understand lulled me right to sleep!
