ATK Cookbook -- Which One?

I ran into an advertisement for ATK cookbooks on sale for $17.50, and wondered which ONE would be the best to get, or should I just save my money and get a different book?

I don't bake, but I'm curious, so I only have 3-4 books on baking. We love meat, soups, curries, and stews all year 'round; as a result, we have at least 10 cookbooks on these alone. We enjoy a wide variety of food and like to experiment. We aren't afraid of vegetables and eat it often, but are far from being vegetarian. We love barbecued foods, but it can snow 6 months of the year here so we have a $15 grill sitting outside on the deck covered with snow.

Pictures are extremely helpful.
