I've been baking bread for more than 40 years, and I have several bread cook books. This book, however, is the best I've seen to date. Someone gave me the recipe for Old Milwaukee Rye at least 30 years ago, and I've been making it ever since. Recently, I noticed that it came from this book, so I ordered it, and I was sorry I hadn't done so much earlier. This book has several variations of almost any kind of bread imaginable, as well as helpful sections on storing and freezing and problems and solutions. It even has a section on baking for dogs. This book makes all other bread books unnecessary.

I bake a lot of bread and this book is a great addition to my cookbook library. Nicely laid out and very thorough.
