Getting the book (and looking inside)

This is the video of me getting to see the finished book for the first time. If you’d like to browse through the final book, Harper Collins/William Morrow now has a page on their site where you can see the dedication, introduction, and several other pages inside the book including some photos, recipes, and recipe listings.
