Good book on babyfood/introducing solids?

The title says it all...I am looking for a good book on babyfood starting at the very beginning. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?

Mommy Made...and Daddy, too! and Baby Bites
Also, my constant recommendation to friends is to check out - it is a whole site just dedicated to starting solids. There is a lot on there about making your own babyfood, but they have a lot of information to help you get started either way.

I like this book:

It goes from purees all the way to preschoolers so that you can keep out of the dreaded grilled cheese/pbj/mac and cheese/chicken nugget, rinse/repeat rut (nothing wrong with those food items, but gives you tons more choices to use along with them). It even has daily/weekly menus that you can use if you choose and recipes that the entire family would eat.

Anything by Ellyn Satter (a great dietitian and child feeding expert):

Dr. Greene's Feeding Baby Green and Dr. Sears Happy Baby

Good luck!
