This book is comprehensive and instructive, and infused with the enthusiasm and knowledgeability of the author which he is dying to share. I found it useful and informative and interesting reading - I just wish I had a garden big enough and enough people to feed to justify building one of the grander ovens he describes. Photography could be a bit better though, so I knocked off a star.

Whilst I havent actually gone and built a clay oven using the instructions given in the book, Ive read it thouraghly and it certainly answers all my questions relating to Earth Ovens and DIY.

It is well structured and clear.

Having researched the making of Earth Ovens, this was the book that consistantly came up trumps with reviewers.

Simple and do-able..........thats the message.

Written from the heart, but not in any way superficial. Good solid advice and guidance on constructing ovens and baking bread, pizzas etc.

Some of the photos could have been reproduced a bit more clearly, but that's a minor issue. The hand-drawn illustrations are charming and do the job.

Having seen the likes of Hugh F-W and Jamie O building and using clay ovens I wanted to see if they are a realistic alternative to our dilapidated barbeque, and a possible alternative oven for when we turn the Rayburn off in the summer. This book seems to be the perfect guide, giving detailed instruction on construction, inspirational and amazing photos of other earth ovens, and sour-dough bread details which we have already followed - and eaten.
Watch this space for our oven to materialise over the next few months; I have no doubt that we will succeed, and enjoy, with the help of this book.

This book is clear and easy to read. It has basic oven dimension information which should make the oven "work" 1st time rather than having a "trial and error" approach. After all, these ovens have been used world-wide for '000's of years.
I have yet to build my oven, but I shall be following the plans and dimensions carefully and I have faith in it turning out well.
