The word I would use to describe the Jaguar F-Type R ($100,000) is smooth. Its lines evoke effortless aggression. You can almost hear it laughing at the idea that any wind could slow it down.

For your money you'll get a car that can accelerate form 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. Not too shabby. Additional features include a 186 mph top speed, 20 inch Gyrodyne silver alloy wheels, super performance braking with red calipers, sport suspension, and switchable exhaust.

If you consider yourself to be innovative, or inventive, or both when it comes to cooking it can be difficult to find an outlet for your creativity as opposed to just following recipes. Cooking For Geeks ($7) is the book you have been waiting for. It goes behind the dish and looks at the science involved in cooking a meal. This is so much more than a cookbook, as it takes your curiosity for new discoveries and applies it to the kitchen thus allowing you to learn what makes a recipe work so you can improvise and create it yourself.
