Looks like the same book although Amazon doesn't have a picture of the dust jacket. It just goes to show you that you never know until you research thoroughly. Example - I recently finished individually ebaying a lot of forty similar Nogent handled carbon steel Sabatier knives from 3.5 to 12". The prices I received ranged from "I lost a few bucks" to "they must be made of money". Life is full of little surprizes.

I think a lot of the Amazon New&Used resellers charge far too much. I was looking for one of the Two Fat Ladies cookbook back in December and Amazon had it New&Used for $240. I found it on ebay used but near prefect condition for $14.00.

Recently I got several new cookbooks.
I love Lidia's Italian American Kitchen. I got a bunch of the food network stars cookbooks. Paula Deen and her sons, Giada De Laurentiis, Ina Garden, Rachael Ray & Tyler Florence. I got a bread cookbook with DVD called Crust. They came a few days ago so I havent had much time to go through them.

I agree - some are really greedy. But, LOL - ya' gotta' shop around! Most of the time I get the best deals off Amazon - but once in a while I have found better deals just by going to Google and typing in the name of the book, or the author's name, and comparing prices. I have only found one book, that I was looking for, on eBay with a better price. But, like the old Smokey Robinson and the Miracles song says:

My mama told me...'you better shop around'
(Shop, shop around) a-whoa-yeah
You better (uh-huh) shop around!
(Shop, shop around)
Uh-uh-uh

If you're interested in different food techniques and presentations, you should pick up the French Laundry cookbook. You'll get a ton of ideas and inspiration from there.

Jeeks, also look into getting "Happy in the Kitchen: The Craft of Cooking, the Art of Eating" by Michel Richard. It's only $30 on Amazon. This book is one of my favorites.

Jeekinz,
Ironchef stole my thunder. "Happy in the kitchen" by Michel Richard is a great book, highly recommendable.
