A lot of the TV chefs have recommended it very highly. Sara Moulton has had him on her show several times and can't say enough good things about the book.

It's a very good basic book. Its not for experienced cooks, really, IMO.

I have given it as a gift to people learning to cook or who want to get better and they have really liked it.

I like Bittman. He has some interesting ideas, and quick-takes on dishes. Never shopped at Costco, but you can google his recipes at NY Times.com, & save them to your recipe files. Also, there are some great videos on youtube or NY Times' site.

I would try Amazon, as well.

A few from Bittman I like (you can google them):

NY Times' No knead bread
Tomato Paella
Little shrimp pancakes (forget the exact name, but he talks about his trip to Spain, etc., as I recall)
Blueberry cheesecake bars
Tri-tip w/ Romesco sauce
Saw a fajita pasta dish, that's on the list.

There's an app for that too! For iPad, iPhone, maybe Android, etc. $9.99 for the full version, they also have a free basic version.
