I have the book because I have very little willpower. The recipes are reliable and delicious. They're more "homespun" type of cakes. There are some fancier ones, but they still somehow seem more like cakes you make for yourself, your family or a casual event.  It's the first book I turn to when I'm craving cake, especially those that don't require frosting. Some of my favorites are espresso cake with kahlua syrup, oatmeal cake with crunchy broiled topping, blueberry crumb squares, cranberry cheese kuchen, nutty cranberry orange cake, sugarsweet tomato nut torte, and the swiss chocolate silk. I think the only one that dissapointed me was one that used whole wheat flour although I suspected at the time that my whole wheat flour was on the rancid side. The table of contents can be found on amazon.com; my memory isn't good enough to remember exact titles.

Ditto what Rhea said.
I think it's definitely worth having, if for the cranberry orange cake alone.
