Book review by Lifehacker Japan

Here is my quick translation of an article in Lifehacker Japan (the first four paragraphs only).
This is a very favorable book review for "Cooking for Geeks"!

Cooking is Chemical Experiment!
Lifehacker book review for "Cooking for Geeks"
Written by editor Hirata

Late in September, typhoons that devastated some areas in Japan brought about cool and pleasant weather in its wake.
Autumn has arrived; it's the best season for reading and for many kind of foods.
How are you doing?

Recently I am interested in, a sort of, cooking.
I was never concerned with it in my twenties, where I was devoted to computing and always had too little time, but curiously I remember Mr. ITO Joichi, now the head of the MIT Media Lab, having said that cooking is like chemical experiment, in his talk about maintenance of nuka-doko (fermented rice bran and brine for pickling).

Since then, more than ten years have passed, and I have been keeping myself away from cooking because of hard work.
Now, I have a book titled "Cooking for Geeks" in my hands.
This is exactly the book for geeks, which satisfies appetites in autumn for both foods and reading.
As soon as I heard of the Japanese translation of this book being published, I placed a pre-order for one, which I received a few days ago and am enjoying now.

Although I inteded to write a book review, I was overwhelmed by the volume of the book: more than 400 pages including index!
Therefore instead of reading through the book and making dishes, I will try to present fascinations of this book by casually picking up my favorites.
