Interesting Sounding Book

Found the listing for the book On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee (ISBN 0684843285). I already have the book The New Best Recipe that Joyce gave me, which does a pretty good job on explaining how to cook better, but the other book looks pretty interesting also, especially one of the chapters is about "basic chemistry." I'm rather curious about the more scientific aspect of cooking and baking, and if I know more about the chemistry then perhaps I can improve my cooking skills.

When I was traveling to US, I ended up buying two food books at the Hong Kong airport. One is about Taiwanese tea which is for research purposes. One of these days I want to find the classic 茶經 by 陸羽. The other one is about starting a beef noodle soup shop. I don't care too much about the business aspect of a beef noodle soup shop, but it is still a pretty interesting read. I'm actually more keen about the recipes and learn more about the variety of Taiwanese beef noodle soup.
