Note from CH: I'm no longer an Amazon customer due to the twisted and over-the-top greedy behaviors of the owner. I've read an explanation of his dark business practices - the owner (and others like him) has no sense of what "enough" is. That said, in order to offer resources for learning, I'm using Amazon as a way to conveniently connect you to books and cookbooks. I do this reluctantly, with pragmatic reasons. One day, I hope we can find a better way.
