Don't waste your money

I recently started making macarons and thought this book would be a good resource. The directions are almost non-existent and don't tell you the tips for success that you can find easily on online. Very disappointing that the entire instructions are only 4 pages long. The entire rest of the book is recipes, but they are a mess. Some have no measurements included (see photo), the champagne and rose macaron recipe has no champagne in it! It has a vanilla buttercream so no idea why they're calling it champagne. And the measurements inexplicably switch from cups to grams toward the end of the book, with a couple even calling for some of the dry measurements in grams and others in cups on the same recipe. It's like they culled a bunch of recipes from the internet and put them all together. Some call for "one quantity" of an ingredient but there is no recipe or measurements indicating what "one quantity" would be. Another calls for "12 oz eggnog macaron base mix" to be included in the shells, but there is no recipe for an eggnog macaron base mix in the book. The filling calls for "remaining eggnog macaron base mix", so it's your guess how much that quantity would be! This book is a mess. Look for a more reliable one. I won't be trying any of these recipes because they're so mixed up.
