My hero, Alton Brown, is publishing a book to celebrate ten years of his TV show, Good Eats.
*Ten years? Has it been that long? My goodness. I think I'm getting old.
**In my day, we walked to school. And it was uphill, both there and back. Hey, you kids, get off my lawn!
It's titled "Good Eats: The Early Years". He released an entertaining little video, promoting the book - watch to find out how he gets the cameras in all the appliances:

The book is coming out in October, and pre-orders are available now through Amazon (and many other booksellers, I'm sure.) Mine's already been placed, of course...
[Update 9/24/09] It was released early; I've had it for a couple of weeks now. And...it is everything I hoped. I watched all the early episodes of Good Eats over and over. I tried to make sure I saw each one twice before I deleted it from my Tivo.* Reading through the summaries, recipes, and behind the scenes information is like spending an evening, catching up on old times with a good friend.
*Yes, I'm a geek. And I didn't have kids. Or a blog.
