Format: Paperback
The book gives one set of plans without much discussion on how to modify them. I was hoping for more theory and explaination about size, height, chimney placement etc.
In British fashion, the author uses more words than necessary to explain himself (think Dickens).
Overall, not a complete waste of time, but less helpful than the title would lead you to believe.

Plans are not as do-able as I had hoped.

a good supplement to The Bread Builders July 5 1999
By Brian Knittel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're interested in building a wood-fired oven for baking, this is a good supplement to Alan Scott's essential "The Bread Builders". Provides very interesting historical background, amusing anecdotes and a set of plans which are aimed a bit more squarely at the amateur builder than Alan's plans. I'm building an oven now using plans interpolated between the two. If you're going to tackle a project like this, get a good book on masonry techniques too, or better yet, a video. (Amazon, care to provide some suggestions?)

Comprehensive history of wood fired ovens. Oct. 27 1998
By ritthaler@codetel.net.do - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although the book is a bit wordy, it gives the reader comprehensive history, information and instructions on how to build a wood-fired oven. The author is English and tends to refer primarily on British ovens and on baking bread. I bought the book to build an Italian style pizza oven, however the book mentions pizza only a few times. The plans on how to build a wood-fired oven are helpful and I am glad that such a book exists.

Interesting, but not really helpful Nov. 24 2010
By Jacketfan14 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a cool book on the history behind ovens, and I enjoyed reading it. You will not be all that close to being able to build your own oven after reading this.

Enjoyed reading it and understanding some history, but I should have checked it out at the library and skipped buying it.

Allen Scotts book is killer, but again, you better know something about building and be creative because he gives you about 80% of the information you need. That was enough for me to complete my oven, but there was a lot of head scratching and questioning if I was doing things right. The chimney was a big miss in the book with almost no detail, so I had to fly by the seat of my pants.

There is good info on the web and this was a good depiction...
