Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I just bought Extreme Brewing by Sam Calagione (Dogfish Head owner) at Barnes and Noble in their 'bargain priced' section. It was $10, which I believe is a pretty good deal. This was in Cary, NC but it's probably on sale everywhere.

Also, it looks like bn.com has it listed for $10 as well.

Yeah, my girlfriend picked it up for me a month or so back from B&N. She said she saw it on the cheap racks by the register.

It is the Hardcover version and it is in the B&N Bargain books section, not the clearance tables or anything like that.

I picked it up here in Rochester, NY this afternoon for $9.98. and with my B&N Member discount, $8.98 and out the door for $9.70.

I just bought it, been reading for a while now.

Not bad, nothing groundbreaking... definitely written for newbies, spends a lot of time on the basics.

Lots of interesting and detailed recipes though, walks you from basic to unusual.
