"[an] excellent bread bible... Extraordinarily well-written and produced, engaging for beginners with something to offer even the seasoned pro, this is a potential long-term classic" -- Tim Hayward Financial Times "Morton's cheerful, geeky enthusiasm communicates itself on every page, and step-by-step pictures make learning the various techniques needed easy." -- Carolyn Hart Telegraph

I'm well familiar with his father, but I am now becoming acquainted with the son.
Enough detail to make it useful, not too much to overload you. Every recipe has worked just as he said it would.
Only critism, How many raisins do I need in my sourdough starter? He omits to say :(
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Brilliant Bread has a clean layout and is filled with many photos that compliment the recipes nicely. I love how each recipe starts with the "Time spent in kitchen" and "time taken altogether" to make each recipe, it gives you an accurate idea of how much time you needed to spend at minimum before starting.
I have the Kindle version of the book because I couldn't wait to start baking and will no doubt get the printed version later on. I am glad I got the Kindle version, as I always have the recipes if I am on the go. The digital version of this book is excellent. I read it on my computer, iPad, Kindle and mobile phone with ease. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to bake bread, this is the best book to have. I have tried many different recipes for scones, white bread, pita breads, focaccia and pizza dough, and none beat James' recipes. Weighing your ingredients like he says, really makes all the difference but not only that, the whole process he uses is fool proof.
Five stars for me and I look forward to his next book and who knows, with a video or two?
