Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Jeff Potter is curious about the science of food and loves finding answers to why ingredients and recipes work the way they do. By bringing science to food-minded people--and food to science-minded people--he blends genres to educate the public about how to master the kitchen. He's been featured in USA Today, the Today Show, and is a regular guest on Science Friday. He's even had the pleasure (and terror) of making a 500-pound donut for Food Network. A frequent speaker, he's spoken across the globe, from Australia's National Science Week to schools in Washington DC. When not in the kitchen cooking with friends, Jeff Potter works with organizations and tech startups, building the technology behind their products. He studied computer science and visual art at Brown University. He can be found online at www.jeffpotter.org.

This is in "etextbook" format; I had never bought a book in this format before. It is basically like PDF format. Each page is a graphic representation of the printed page. The problem is, the original font is of such a size that on devices with screens smaller than the pages of the original book, the font is too small.
On a regular size tablet like an iPad Air the pages are legible but unpleasantly small. I would not want to read for more than a short period on a tablet. On an iPad Mini, forget it. Unusable. I would suggest if you aren't planning to mostly read on a large computer screen, you think twice about getting the Kindle edition.
I can see. Why they chose to go w itch this format; the page layout is completely free form with multiple embedded graphics on many pages, so this is probably the only practical format they could use. However, I think Amazon needs to give more warning at the point of purchase about the drawbacks. For most devices, you are basically getting a book with pages shrunken from the original physical format. (Of course, you can zoom in, but try reading a book in that mode for any length of time.)
He has apparently abandoned the book at page 53, Lemony Quinoa and Asparagus with Shrimp Scampi. It appears that the next 100 pages are just content, minus any recipes. He just doesn't care to get bogged down in that many pages of scientific explanations. The book would have been better if there was a better balance of science to actual recipes.
