I recently upgraded my old National bread machine to a state-of-the-art Zojurushi and thought I'd reward my myself by purchasing this well-recommnded book.
First, the size: it's *tiny*--more like a field guide. This can be a plus, in some instances, but it sure lacks an air of authority, in this case, and probably won't wear well. On the other hand, the typeface is clear and bold, which is useful. All recipes are presented in three columns for "small," "medium," and "large" loaf sizes. Recipes do not include ingredient weights, which are essential (especially for flour), as any proper baker knows. This lack undoubtedly contributed to the problems I (and other reviewers) had obtaining consistent results from this book. There are quite a number of jarring typos (e.g., "broiche") which also undercut the book's credibility.
I tried several of the recipes at various loaf sizes. Most recipes required adjustment of liquid or dry ingredients, not such a big deal. But, the results were generally insipid, to my taste buds.
There are certainly better books out there, or better yet, check out some of the websites that are proliferating for this genre.
All in all, not a cookbook I'd reach for again.
