Believe the hype-- this is THE book to get when it comes to bread. The recipes are well-organized, with selections covering all the main bread types and difficulty levels. This is simply the best way to start get'n yeasty. After delving into the foolproof introductory bakes, you're going to be shopping for lava rocks in no time.

This is the best bread baking book I have read in terms of actually being able to make the loaves described therein. Many other such books have a sourdough or levain starter, which is a turn-off for many home bakers, or have arcane ingredients, or origami-master style folding of dough, or fussy repeated rise times not practical for someone who has other things to do than sit around waiting for dough to poof in maddening increments. This book has almost none of those deficiencies, yet gives you the chance to experiment with many types of bread. It is written well, and it has oodles of lovely photographs to guide you through the various processes. Finally, I would even say that if you are going to do a lot of home bread baking, instead of getting it from the library, go buy it. I know you will find it pleasantly useful.
PS: I know I sound like I work for Test Kitchen, but I don't. I have, however, been baking bread at home for close to a decade.
