From Publishers' Weekly:

In his briskly informative, humorous fashion, Rodgers tells you Everything You've Always Wanted to Know About Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner but Were Too Harassed to Ask. A Thanksgiving specialist‘he's the author of The Turkey Cookbook and teaches Thanksgiving 101 classes‘Rodgers has developed and refined over 150 recipes, surefire cooking methods and detailed timetables to help the anxious host and hostess master all aspects of the national feast. Whether unmolding the cranberry mold, serving up lively vegetables (Not Your Grandmother's Succotash), baking Buttermilk Biscuits, mastering do-ahead gravy, mashing lump-free potatoes or roasting a bird‘10 different ways‘Rodgers reassures the cook in the kitchen. Along the way, he gives some snazzy twists to the basics, e.g., "Tamale" Stuffing with Pork, Chiles and Raisins, Scalloped Yams with Praline Topping, and Pumpkin-Walnut Roulade with Ginger Filling. Menus, informative essays on ingredients, a complete q&a section on turkey, great pies and inspiring leftovers (tacos to Tetrazzini) complete the confidence-building course. (Sept.)

From Library Journal:

Here, in one volume, is everything you need for success in planning, preparing and producing the perfect Thanksgiving for a gathering of eight to 12 guests. As a cookbook author and cooking teacher who specializes in this particular holiday, Rodgers knows the tables and traditions inside out. Don't think, however, that this book is rigidly bound to only the classic recipes; throughout the seven chapters on appetizers and beverages, soups and salads, turkey, stuffings and dressings, side dishes, breads, and desserts, the author includes international dishes and exotic ingredients along with the standard favorites. There is "make-ahead" information for most of the recipes, a planning timetable, safety notes on handling and cooking times, and a sensible chapter on dealing with leftovers. The biggest potential problem with Thanksgiving 101 will be keeping multiple copies on the shelf as the fourth Thursday in November approaches. Highly recommended for all popular collections.ÄWendy Miller, Lexington P.L., KY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
