    1. Another great book from Alton Brown. I swear these books will make you a better cook. They teach you the science behind cooking, step by step so you can make good food consistently.


    2. I've been enjoying Alton Brown's cooking shows for years, and it's great to finally have a lot of his informational patter put into print. In the past, I'd go online to print out a recipe, and, as helpful as that is, getting the backgrounds of diverse foodstuffs, makes this better than a basic recipe book. Even though this book came out years ago, it was a very nice surprise gift from a friend. Even on foods I don't particularly like, I enjoy reading Alton's take on them. Alton is both VERY know [...]


    3. More than a cookbook. Brown provides food facts, some show notes, and little known information along with his recipe "applications". I would have liked more from the show side, but overall it's a "Good Read."


    4. I miss Good Eats. I loved this show. I loved reading through this. It recommitted me to some of my cooking ideals!


    5. I read these out of order, because of the availability at the library. Unfortunately, this was much more like the third installment than the first. The first book (Early Years) was fun because there was a lot of behind-the-scenes trivia and fun facts, as well as intros that were about the episode instead of quoted from the episode. This one and the third book are basically word-for-word the same (with a very few exceptions) as the episodes they present. The recipes have been reformulated in some [...]


    6. I read somewhere that a very large percentage of those who purchase cookbooks do so, not to try the recipes but for the joy of reading them. I must confess that I love reading good cookbooks - and I enjoy cooking the recipe jewels I find. Cooking for me is relaxing, creative and a welcome relief from the stress of my daily life. So, I have decided to include a number of my favorite cookbooks so that you can enjoy them as well.Alton Brown is a former science teacher and his approach on the televi [...]


    7. This is a scientific filled cookbook based off Good Eats, Alton Brown's first show for Food Network. I liked all the background knowledge about the subject matter, esp all the little-known facts scattered throughout the book. I was looking for the cookbook with the gyro recipe as I had seen the show years ago, because my husband is a huge gyro fan, and this is the volume that contains the recipe. Alton has fun and tasty recipes for beef jerky, 4 minute PB fudge, hot cocoa mix, banana ice cream, [...]


    8. I haven't made any of the recipes yet. I'll edit this review after I have. That said, this series of books is fun to read from an informational standpoint, even without making any of the foods. As with Good Eats: Volume 1, The Early Years, there are some recipes that I will never try due to the complexity.


    9. If you love his show, you'll love this. It's a succinct summary of the show, but with behind the scenes bits and mostly fabulous recipes (I tried his sugar cookies recently and wasn't impressed). It's less science-y than I'm Just Here for the Food: Food + Heat = Cooking (in a good way), but it still retains the quintessential Good Eats vibe.


    10. A summary + recipes of many of the episodes, including protein bars and gyros.Ohhh gyrosI should have copied those down before I returned the book to the library!I would say this one is for the die hard Alton fan, not necessarily a cookbook for everyone. Even as an ADHD gal, it was a little TOO ADHD for me!


    11. Just as awsome as the first book he wrote. Agin all of the dishes you live but on paper. So you can make them yourself. If you're a fan of the show then you are sure to love this book. Good eats 2 is a good read and a great cookbook to have.


    12. AB has the incredible power of unifying my entire household to watch, read, or cook. I am even loathe to file this as "read" because it's on the bookshelf closest to the kitchen and we pull it off the shelf all the time. Great resource. Great recipes. That is all.


    13. A bit less new tidbits than the first edition of Good Eats, but I guess that makes sense. It is exactly what you expect if you are a fan of the show, but I hope for the next book he is able to include more material that isn't publicly known.





    14. Fantastic! It's like watching the show, but you're reading it in a book and best of all, the recipes are written down for you -- easy to copy.


    15. Alton is one of my favorite chefs. This book has a lot of the recipes featured on his show, Good Eats - which makes it perfect for people, like me, who are too lazy to transcribe as we watch TV.



    16. there is nothing else like alton's down-to-earth skillz in the kitchenis book is full of recipes and tips from the show. hooray!









    17. Loved the book. Like the way Alton Brown Lays out the recipes. I love all the interesting little side information. The Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes and the Pork Pot Stickers are super yummy!
