Because it has nothing new in it if you have Bo Friberg's books you don't need this And I couldn't find any info on souffles which also lowered my rating Like all of the books by the French Culinary Institute the introduction to pastry arts is beautifully designed It outlines the theory and practice of each techniue which is then followed by a collection of recipes showing how the techniues are used A must have for any serious baker
