Hoffman provides great resources such as inexpensive simple recipes, and lists of organizations and societies that may or may not be outdated. Hoffman was brilliant and hid his mental illness hoffkan eccentricity.
A number of actions described in the book would get one prosecuted for terrorism today, for instance. How can I complain? He’s full of himself and his book is replete with arrogant, assumptive matteroffact-ness.
