5.0 out of 5 stars A truly unique reading experience, April 16 2004
This book surprised me in so many ways. Knowing the author's other works, I expected it to be witty and thoughtful, but I was surprised by the emotion I felt reading it, and by its amazing complexity. There is considerable humor in the book, but there is so much more. While I know this book will be of interest and inspiration to anyone who has had brain surgery or any kind of life-threatening illness or harrowing medical experience, I also believe that the story is so universal and accessible, as it charts the author's dealings with her doctors, her family, and her own physical and mental limits, that it will appeal to anyone who picks it up and starts to read it. I was sad when it was over, because I wanted it to go on and on. And then there is the incredible design of the book, composed of cartoons, charts, quotes, and various other types of illustration, all woven in smoothly with the text. It's a truly original artistic and literary work.

This is an easy, helpful, funny guide, filled with great recipes, that make entertaining a breeze. This is a perfect companion to Help! My Apartment Has A Kitchen, another "must-have." The authors' chocolate recipe book, Chocolate on the Brain, is another great book, filled with simple, tasty recipes that chocolate-lovers will embrace. These are really useful books, in which every recipe is a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Recipe Book for Anyone and Everyone, Jan. 24 2003
This is a great book for both beginners and experts, due to the variety of the dishes and their simplicity. It is a great companion to Help! My Apartment Has a Dining Room, which offers tips and recipes for entertaining. These are two basic cookbooks that everyone should have, and would make excellent housewarming gifts. An extra treat would be the addition of the authors' chocolate cookbook: Chocolate on the Brain, which matches the other two books for ease of preparation, the wit of the text, and the guarantee that every recipe will turn out delicious.

This is a GREAT book for chocaholics. Because every recipe deals with chocolate, it is easy to page through and find a recipe that matches the ingredients you have on hand whenever you need a fix. Most of the recipes are quick and very easy, and the authors offer helpful tips along the way. An excellent gift for anyone who likes chocolate.
