This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation.Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread-- requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan--and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

long, cold, ferment, no knead. Good to follow.

The author of this book is obviously enthusiastic and aims at inspiring the newbie baker, but perhaps he is a bit too enthusiastic. His aside comments often get in the way of presenting the basic recipes clearly.
And the beginning of the book is somewhat of a fake-out. It starts off with a few yeast bread recipes within the grasp of most new bakers. But the rest of the book (more than 3/4) is based on sourdough starter, which he shows how to make. But making it is a lengthy and tedious process--and, once made, it forces you to keep baking bread and to keep renewing the starter.
I personally would have been happier with fewer sourdough recipes and more of the interesting yeast bread formulas.
