I have yet to make soap based on this book..but the book made me ready to want to dive in. The book is written very straightforward and seems to cut away a lot of the fear in trying your hand at a new project. I rad through it in one sitting. I look forward to rereading and testing it out.

About the author (2007)

Anne L. Watson made soap professionally under the company name Soap Tree before deciding that soapmaking was more fun as a hobby than a business. In her other life, she is now retired from a long and honored career as a historic preservation architecture consultant. Her other published books include two novels, "Pacific Avenue" and "Skeeter: A Cat Tale," plus the cookbook "Baking with Cookie Molds." Anne, her husband, Aaron, and their cat, Skeeter, live in Friday Harbor, Washington.
