Donna Hay's recipies are generally easy to follow and tasty. This book focuses on things that you should have in the cupboard - I'm a bit scatty and needed to buy in some of the 'staples', but since then I have found this is great book for weeknight supers. Less fussy than Delia.
This book has really nice pictures, and fairly simple recipes.
For the right person, this would be a great book to have in the kitchen. The meals are simple and quick. This book is most likely not for advanced cooks, but is for people who appreciate good food and would like to be able to prepare some nice dishes quickly, using mostly ingredients that you should have on hand.
The book is broken down into the following sections: - Introduction - Shopping list

There appear to be pictures of every recipe in the book (and there are over 190 recipes), and the recipes would probably very easy to adjust, given their initial simplicity.
