I think this is one of those cookbooks that should be added to any "basic" cookbook collection. The core concepts are sound and well explained. Plus, I'm all for baking bread that doesn't require a complex process of kneading/rising/resting etc.

That said, I had mixed results with the recipes I did try from this book. I'm sure that most of the failures were due to user-error and if I'd been really persistent I probably could have worked out the kinks. This book does contain helpful troubleshooting sections in case you're not getting the desired results.

The one recipe from this book that I use ALL THE TIME is the olive oil pizza dough recipe. It's truly awesome. Maybe not the most unique thing to be found in this book, but it's become one of my staple recipes.
