Best General Purpose Cookbook

What's a good cookbook to buy for someone who doesn't have a lot of cookbooks. I consider myself a fairly skilled cook, but I mostly cook free style, or from recipes I get online. I'm thinking of getting a cookbook like Joy of Cooking, Silver Palates, or How to Cook Everything. What's everyone's favorite all purpose book, and what's the best recipe from that book?
