I'm reading through Alton's book "I'm Just Here for the Food: Food + Heat = Cooking" (one of the worst titles in the history of food writing). I got it when it came out and glanced through it but never really read it. I only consulted a recipe or two over the years. It's pretty meh as a cookbook for recipes, but it's actually a really entertaining read straight through. He covers a lot of the same ground that he's covered in the TV show, but there are plenty of other little entertaining tidbits, stories of experiments he's done to test out different temperatures and methods, etc.
