Hi! I'm Carolyn Shearlock, one of the authors, and I just received my advance copy of the print version. I'm thrilled that McGraw-Hill was able to incorporate a number of features that we felt were important -- and I just wanted to point them out here:
Number one is just the size of the book: 451 pages! It was originally slated at 336, but there was just too much stuff. Rather than cut it, they expanded the page count -- while keeping the price the same.
* Over 800 recipes, designed to be made without electrical appliances and with ingredients you can actually find.
* Fifteen (!) pages of ingredient substitutions, plus measurement conversions, food storage, and even equipment substitution.
* Lots of alternative ingredients and variations in the recipes, plus detailed information on possibly unfamiliar food preparation and cooking techniques.
* Cross references galore! Whether to substitutions, make-it-from-scratch alternatives, preparation details, or related recipes in other chapters, we've worked with the layout artists to make it easy to find what you want.
* And McGraw-Hill agreed to include a whole chapter of "meal ideas" -- you know, for those times when you just don't know what you feel like making, but you need to come up with something!
Other features can best be shown in photos -- and these are some of the things that we're the most excited about! It was really a collaboration with the layout designers, with us making suggestions of features that we thought would make the book more useful on a boat and the design team turning our concepts into reality.
Things like a binding that will stay open to the page you're using, a print size that while not artificially inflating the page count, can be read in less-than-perfect light by "over-40" eyes, not wasting a lot of space on "pretty" pictures, but using photos only where they show something - such as how to fillet a fish - that's hard to describe in words.
You can see all these features on The Boat Galley's Facebook album, along with notes: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.430324587005066.86977.142104895827038&type=1&l=5810bed046 by Carolyn Shearlock
