Always double check on these free items, they are great but can disappear in an instant.
I like to double check the receipt to make sure not charged.

To be honest, I do not understand the sense of cookbooks in the era of internet. You can find almost any recipe on internet for free. And google search is much faster abd more convenient than searching for the particular recipe in a book.

Ikr....plus YouTube too....where a video is much more helpful to a beginner or for a more difficult recipe/method.

LOL...there is no such thing as a difficult recipe/method. You either have the skill/talent OR you don't.

"You don't have the skill" = difficult

Well, if you pay little attention to what you cook and eat that "any recipe" is as good to you as any other, you have a point. But they're not. And frankly, most of the "recipes" on the Internet suck. Big-time. It's true that since there are hundreds of thousands of them out there, that still leaves quite a few decent ones, but the ratio of good to bad is pretty minimal. So good cookbooks certainly aren't pointless.

As for the myriad really cheap (and sometimes free) short things on Amazon like this Chinese cookbook, that's a different kettle of fish altogether.Wink These things are usually just compilations of recipes culled from the web "written" by "authors" who would be better called something like "Internet content entrepreneurs" than cookbook or even "food" "writers". This guy has a dozen very short, basically pretty random-subject cookbooks on Amazon. Not exactly confidence-inspiring as far as him having any particular expertise worth paying for... But as long as they're free, the worst thing that happens is you lose 10 minutes of your life skimming the book, and you may find a recipe or two, or even three, worth keeping...

With all that in mind, I'll also note that he has another one for free at the moment: Ground Meat Cuisine: Creative Beef, Lamb, Pork and Poultry Recipes [amazon.com]. I haven't looked through it at all yet, so YMM totally V, and as usual, check the price before hitting "submit". Also, in general, don't forget can always get a refund on ebooks bought on Amazon for some reasonably long period after purchase (at least a few days, maybe as much as a week?)

How not?Confused I don't entirely agree with it, but as an "statement of opinion" written in the English language, it makes perfect sense...
