James Beard was one of the finest chefs America has come up with. He was also an excellent teacher--a trait which carries over well into his writing. Added to this, he loved bread. These things taken together make for a significantly useful book on bread making, especially for those with little experience in the field. I particularly hovered over the introduction leading into the basic white bread recipe which contained detailed, concise, and friendly information qualified to send you on your merry way and keep you merry as you go. This included such information as why your bread may not have turned out the way you hoped it would, how to make it turn out differently next time, and how to greatly enjoy even a substandard loaf of homemade bread.
I have not tried all of the recipes contained in this book, but the ones I have tried I've enjoyed and learned from and many others greatly interest me.
