I have some sad news: Publishing, the BBQ Board and our BBQ community, and Steven Raichlen have lost a great friend with the death of Workman Publishing founder Peter Workman. Peter was the visionary behind such amazing books as The Silver Palate, The New Basics, 1000 Places to See Before You Die, and of course The Barbecue Bible cookbook series.
For an appreciation, click here: http://ow.ly/jQrLc We will miss you, Peter.

Our condolences to Peter's family and friends and his extended family at Workman Publishing. I believe our first Workman book was "What To Expect When You're Expecting".

My first Workman book was The Barbecue Bible, actually, though I have several of their gardening books and others now. Once again, our condolences.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I mentioned above that I had a few Workman titles, but until today I didn't realize how many. I reorganized my library this morning and discovered literally 2 dozen more titles.

This led me to check out Workman's catalog online, and after browsing through it for over an hour I finally realized how truly amazing a company that Peter Workman built. Once again, my condolences go out to his family, friends and staff - he will be missed.
