Hmmm.  Cornell has a copy on order.  Ettlinger is also the author (or 
co-author) of "Beer for dummies," "The Complete illustrated guide to 
everything sold in garden centers (except the plants)," "The Kitchenware 
book," and "Restaurant lover's companion : a handbook for deciphering the 
mysteries of ethnic menus."  I may have to look at some of these.
