Full of great information. I read it straight through, but there's too munch information to remember. It is definitely more of a reference book. I could see pulling this book out before trying any new recipe and reading the pertinent section - or any time I was working on improving my technique of a particular method. It also includes a few well-placed example recipes to see the science and techniques in action.

Of course it doesn’t answer every question you can possibly come up with, but it is an incredibly useful book, especially for me, as I am just getting into baking theory. The only real criticism I have is that it’s fairly US-centric in terms of equipment and ingredients. I know I don’t have (easy) access to all of the resources mentioned in the book.

Overall worth the read, though I'm not quite convinced that I need to have this book in my cooking library. I learned a couple of tricks and why you can replace certain things with another. There were also a couple of really interesting recipes. I'm not sure I'll retain much info, but it's a good resource.

i really used the knitting and the crochet answer book, in this same line, but i was kind of disappointed in this baking one. there was definitely some good information and i like the q/a style, but i actually felt like it could have used more pictures. weird, since i didn't think that about the knitting or crochet ones at all! oh well.

Lots of good info in this book, and if there were a vegan version I'd probably want my own copy. I filed away in my brain the hints for making flaky biscuits and the best types of baking dishes.

A great resource for bakers! It seems like it might be difficult to find an answer to a specific question, but it is quite comprehensive.

Clearly written, interesting, and helpful! More of a reference book than a sit-and-read, of course.
