I have cooked a bit from Season and enjoyed it. It reminds me of @Suvir Saran's American Masala in that both feature many Western recipes, given a twist with Indian flavors. 

 

I've been reading Season from the library.  It is definitively worth a purchase.

This is quite a nice book.  The Red Truck Bakery is near "back home" for me and their baking is good enough for me to have sought out a hard copy of this book.  Baking from the recipes in the book has not disappointed.
