    best choice for those who are interested in baking (especially bread baking)

    here is one expample, the author spends several pages on how to make the cut patterns on the surface of bread, and I followed his instruction, it turns out great, so I would say his technique is trustable and the book is quite informative. you will learn a lot of "tricks" in this point of view. by the way, it has the best croissant picture i have ever seen among so many baking and pastry books. I would say this book is really the best.
