Can't Wait!
I have had my eye on this book for QUITE a while now, but I kept finding reasons why I just couldn't afford the extra expense. Today, I'm finally going to get it! I cannot WAIT!

Holy Cow this book is AWESOME!!!!!
I purchased this as an e- book. I found it at about 8pm and yes I stayed up ALL night because I could not put it down. It has the best clearest pictures and instructions of any instructional book I have and I have a thorough library. This book has all the tips and tricks I've been trying to find and they are all in one place. The book is downright inspirational. I'd not made soap in months because i was just bored! I had my favorite recipe and a couple other stand by's. Now I can't wait to dive in again. It also includes a very helpful section on troubleshooting that gave even an experienced soaper like me insight. Buy this book if you don't get any others!

OMG!!!! I never imagined when I decided I wanted to learn to make soap that someday I would be able to make artwork suitable for display in the Smithsonian! Anne Marie you and your staff are truly magicians! The only suggestion I would offer........also offer a book with laminated pages (I hope I am not the only one dangerous with oils, fragrances (:-)) but never careless with the lye). I would be happy to pay extra for that. I am also in agreement with Ursula........the spiral is just a tad too small, making even the front pages difficult to turn carefully. BTW I studied and read soap websites and books for almost 6 MONTHS before I got the never to try cold process soap. I was addicted when I cut the 1st slice out of loaf molds my hubby built for me. He's totally supportive, loves being my guinea pig and tells everyone he talks to about my "homemade" soap.Thanks Anne Marie for taking the mystery out of making soap for those of us who didn't have grandmothers cooking in the yard

Replacement for ricebran oil
Like the book a lot, but I am in Costa Rica and some oils are harder to get, this book has a lot of rice bran oil as an ingredient would like advice on what oil I can replace it with. Without changing the recipe.

Soap Crafting
Great book with lots of tips and tricks. The only problem with the book is that the spiral binding is too small and the pages are hard to turn.
