This is an amazing cookbook. Because every recipe was written by a different author, there is a refreshing variety that you don't get from many other cookbooks. The downside of having recipes from all over is sometimes the ingredients that are called for aren't easy to attain. The essays in the front of the cookbook are pretty well rounded and very easy to understand. Some of the recipes are more suited to have multiple people cooking, as I found out while trying to make the chicken chorizo casserole. Overall it is a great healthy cookbook and I would recommend to anyone looking to make their diet a little more green.
