5.0 out of 5 stars A tasty and comprehensive coverage of bread making, 12 Dec. 2001
For all those who are crazy about bread and bread making this book is a must. It is crammed full with fantastic recipes and accompanied by beautiful photographs of the end product (well, what they should look like,... hopefully).
Let's face it, there is nothing better than waking to the smell of fresh bread in the morning.
With the rapid growth in the number breadmaking machines on the market, bread making has never been so easy. Nearly all of the recipes in this book can be readily adapted to the home breadmaking machine. From beginners to the pros this book will inspire all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best fishy-history book I've ever read!, 6 Feb. 2001
We are now all aware of the dire straits the fishing industry is now in. All around the world fish stocks are crashing, primarily due to overfishing, but also due to environmental problems (most of which are also due to human kind). This book follows mans intimate relationship with one fish; the cod. It examines the early respect for nature and the fish which controlled peoples livelihoods, how we came to abuse that relationship and ultimately how fisherman have destroyed their only source of income. Pasion, greed and a way of life lost.
