I don't have a lot to add, since most has been said already. His story in first third of the book was nice read. As mentioned earlier, the second part contains recipes. I can't really comment on them, since I didn't try any. However I might try some of his recipes later(probably the sauce and topping recipes). Another reason why I didn't make a recipe yet is that I would have to convert the values to the metric system, but that shouldn't be a problem. It would have been nice if the baker's percentages would have been given, but I guess the targeted audience of the recipes doesn't use them. I also agree that it needs more pictures of the different pies.
