Got it from the library and was so impressed I went out and bought it. Not giving it a five star review only because I haven't tested the recipes myself yet... They LOOK great and I'm looking forward to trying many of them. Saw a review that gave the book one star because the whole wheat bread recipes use bread flour in addition to whole wheat flour. Goodness, I can only assume that judgmental reviewer has never actually baked with only whole wheat flour! There are reasons why whole wheat baked goods are "lightened" with a mix of other flours...flours are not interchangeable, and whole wheat-only baked goods can easily turn out unpleasantly dense, heavy, crumbly, and downright inedible. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/what-makes-whole-grain-bread-so-hard-...

This is a pretty good starter book for bread machine baking. Eventually, you get a little tired of the author's seemingly indiscriminate use of Vital Wheat Gluten and the unindexed portions of the text. This is an easy book to start with and an easy book to grow out of. ( )
