I purchased it for my plating class. It's beautifully photographed and presents a lot of formulas. If you're a pastry chef it might be a great book for you. What were you hoping to find in it?

amazon.com has the look inside feature for the book, or you could stop into a Barnes and Nobles to look at it. I've not looked at it in quite a while. When I was in culinary school I found it to be a great reference and when I was working as a pastry chef I would go through it for ideas... There are many great examples of high end desserts / plating with the formulas included. If you don't work in that niche I don't think it would be a helpful book to have overall. Looking at the amazon.com look inside feature might help:
