    Plus theres just something about a book that beats reading online.. probably the knowlage that if I fry another computer. im not going to loose all that info (am on computer #5 in the last 10 years for the record)
    I have the book and agree with this poster's comments. While its not a bad book to have, I would look elsewhere for the "best" book you are searching for. And this is coming from a fermenting fiend............

There's a fair bit on the politics of food, too -- which is kind of relevant, but one would probably want to go to a more knowledgable source like Joel Salatin for that. The recipes and directions are competent enough. He got a big gun in for the foreword, too -- the godmother of the ancestral food movement, Sally Fallon.

    Yeah, it's OK. It's more a set of musings around the notion of fermented foods with some directions thrown in than a straightforward how-to. I guess there's good precedent for that in the food world. I suppose people don't read Elizabeth David for the recipes. But then this man isn't Elizabeth David. I enjoyed it, but you might want to be aware that it's rather discursive in case that's not what you're looking for.

    I don't know the other book. You can probably find quite a lot of information online, if you're not sure you want to spend the money.
