I was a pretty good bread baker before, or so I thought. Mr. Reinhart has taught me that a lot of the folk wisdom about home breads is totally wrong (for example, I no longer proof my bread in a warm place). Using his techniques, I've been producing wonderful, flavorful breads with perfect crusts -- neither too soft nor too crunchy -- and even interiors. If you're even slightly serious about bread baking, this book is worth the price several times over.
Checked this book out from the library . Liked it so much bought one for me and one for relative . If you want the best raisin bread ever , want to save money , or just want to go back to self sufficient living this is the book . It will pay for itself in 2 weeks . Especially if your a "prepper" this is a must for your book shelf .
I bought this book for my husband who has a passion for bread. It exceeded my expectations!

Well, the book is the book. You pretty much get the book that you ordered, so no problems there. As far as the content, I'm really enjoying reading it. I'm learning so much about baking that I never understood before. I thought in terms of baking, I was a pretty advanced (or maybe adventurous is the right word). But there was so much I didn't know and understand. I like that the collection of recipes is very complete. There are a lot of recipes I didn't expect to see, like bagels and cinnamon rolls.

If you want to make some of the best bread you have ever tasted, just get this book and start baking. Very informative, this will take you through the steps of bread baking to fulfill your every desire. All bread bakers know there are some very dangerous pitfalls to trying new breads and some of the more unusual. They can be as elusive as our dreams at times, but this takes you through each one, step by step and with each success you will gain the courage to try another one. I highly recommend this book to all.
