Cookbook Content Question

Hey there, SE'ers. I've been reviewing a LOT of cookbooks lately and find that there are things I like and things I don't. For example, I'm getting tired of books that use the first half to explain cooking techniques and ingredients. While they may be well-written and researched, I'm primarily looking for recipes. What about you? What peeves you and what pleases you about cookbooks (especially the new ones coming out this year)? Thanks a bunch for your input.
