This is a very good instructional-book on soap making. It covers all types of bar soapmaking, with recipes and instructions that are easy to follow. It comes with a DVD. I have gone through books that look "prettier," but with this one, you just know that the authors are very experienced and know a great deal about soap making. I learned a lot, especially how soap can be made out of bison fat! A good resource.
