The recipes are listed by people who have submitted them, so there are some variations on the same recipe. I welcome this; the variations help people who have allergies or when you are missing an ingredient.
This book would make a great wedding present.
That being said, if you stick to the recipes that don't use cream-of-death soup, you will find some gems in this cookbook. There are some interesting Oriental-flavor recipes in particular. However, a lot of the "800-plus" recipes in the book are either exact duplicates or recipes with extremely slight variations, so you're not getting as many recipes as you think you are when you buy the book.
The easiest, tastiest, and most versatile crock-pot recipe is this: take 2-4 chicken breasts, place them in the crock-pot still frozen, add half a can of chicken broth and your favorite spices, and cook on low for 4-6 hours. You can use this cooked chicken in enchiladas, fajitas, chicken ala king, etc.
I have had this book since it first came out, I love almost every singlerecipe in it. Learned, though, I am not a fun of Curry. YUCK! hehe.
After reviewing the other comments, I would say that that people in CA and "northern" states can't eat anything where you taste the food and not the salt. I have found nothing boring about this recipes. yes, a lot call for a "can" of something, but the point is cheap, fast, and ready when you are. If you want fancy, hard to make, and takes too much time to bother with then a crockpot might not be what you are looking for.
I loved this book so much, I bought the new one "Fix-It and Forget-It Recipes for Entertaining." I only have one complaint. One reviewer said "This cookbook offers many delicious, nutritious, and easy to assemble dishes that you can throw in the crockpot (or slow cooker) and leave to live your daily life!"
How do they know? It doesn't list the values of the food.
