If you want to really understand how to cook well, this is an excellent book. It is meant to be READ - not just used as a recipe source (although there are some great recipes in it!). This book teaches you how to cook the right way, with simple principles and accompanying recipes to illustrate the principle. Once you have mastered the concept, you can then apply it to other foods you cook and you don't need a specific recipe for each item you prepare. This is a knowledge builder that will make you a better cook if you take the time to use it. I use it daily as a reference guide and it has made me a much more confident cook.
