Pros: Great understanding of braising techniques

Cons: More and better photos would be appreciated

Based on comments here and elsewhere, I ordered the book and received it a few days ago.  It's an excellent volume, one that I will surely read and reference frequently over time.  The book is filled with great recipes, but, more than that, it fosters an understanding of the techniques used and provides alternatives.  I rate this book very highly - it's on the level of Judy Rodgers' Zuni Cafe Cookbook and some of Paula Wolfert's work.  If you haven't done so already, shake a few shekels loose from your pocket, hie thee to Amazon (or, better yet, your favorite local book store), and get a copy.  You will not be disappointed.
All About Braising: The Art of Uncomplicated Cooking
Description:

From the perfect pot roast to the fragrant complexity of braised endive, there's no food more satisfying than a well-braised dish. The art of braising comes down to us from the earliest days of cooking, when ingredients were enclosed in a heavy pot and buried in the hot embers of a dying fire until tender and bathed in a deliciously concentrated sauce. Today, braising remains as popular and as uncomplicated as ever. Molly Stevens's All About Braising is a comprehensive guide to this versatile way of cooking, written to instruct a cook at any level. Everything you need to know is here, including: a thorough explanation of the principles of good braising with helpful advice on the best cuts of meat, the right choice of fish and vegetables, and the right pots 125 reliable, easy-to-follow recipes for meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetables, ranging from quick-braised weeknight dishes to slow-cooked weekend braises planning tips to highlight the fact that braised foods taste just as good, if not even better, as leftovers a variety of enlightened wine suggestions for any size pocketbook with each recipe 16 color photographs, 50 line drawings
