Tired of cookbook errors

Here is the deal folks. Im a professional chef. I can cook. I mostly use cook books for inspiration but on occasion when I am preparing something that I have never done before I might turn to a cookbook. One of the books that instantly comes to mind that is a serious offender of incomplete or error filled recipes is the Alinea cook book but I have a few hundred cookbooks and their are plenty more offenders. It blows me a way when a Chef creates a recipe that is measured to the gram how a recipe can be off by let say 150 grams. I think when chefs write cookbooks they need to do a better job with their recipes or not write them at all. Just curious what others think of this.
