When you think you have a good idea for a cookbook, the first question to objectively ask is: Why would someone want to buy this book?

One of the greatest compliments you can ever receive is to hear from someone that they use your book on a regular basis. It makes the writing of them so worthwhile to think that you are in someone's home, feeding and making them happy.
