    Pros - You'll learn good technique, and cut salt
    Cons - Cuts too far and loses some satisfaction in doing ti.
    A critically important book for anyone who needs to limit sodium. Many good ideas and adaptations as well as sound technique to help you cook well and still enjoy food. Mostly. He tends to cut fat to an extreme as well which hinders some of dishes from achieving their potential.

    The baking section is extreme and not practical for many people in my opinion.

    Many of the recommended products are hard to find, or changed since original publication.

    Still, it was a very helpful resource at the time I first had to limit my sodium and one I recommend frequently even now. He's gone on to write a few other low sodium books, particularly on baking. I've not tried the new baking recipes to see if I think they've improved.
