I never cared for his other books but I'm also pretty selective and favor completely vegan books (although I've bought quite a few non-vegan and even non-vegetarian ones if they were unique enough). I have a lot of cookbooks though, a lot. But a cookbook that focuses on other meals besides dinner and isn't baking focused sounds like a decent one to look at, at least.
