Only a minute

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one

What could Taylor Mali have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have some content and a point besides just quoting Julia Childs.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed, a minute does not make a book.
