Crust and Crumb: Master Formulas for Serious Bread&hellip by Peter Reinhart
25 of 30 people found the following review helpful
Since I purchased this book I waited for it with impatience. I had just got into the sourdough baking and was very excited to get my first cookbook about it.

From the moment I received it I was sure this book was written by a passionate baker who devoted a lot of time and energy to master this art. It's great to read little anecdotes before each recipe and there are a lot of tips for each bread, but after a while I realised that for the very same reason there are not many recipes in the book all together.

I didn't like the way how the book is organised, that is, each chapter descibes a different method of making bread: rustic bread, then sourdough, then wholegrain,… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read, 17 April 2009

Brian knows how to sell his ideas, but what I find extremely valuable is that he doesn't force… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read, but off topic, 17 April 2009
Although a very good read and a lot of tips, I found the author writing off topic throughout most of the book (he actually only starts talking about cold calling per se on page 91 out of 148 pages in total). The rest is just about a general attitude towards work, time management, a bit of NLP, etc.

I understand Mr Etherington wanted to show the idea of the cold calling within a particular context which he first had to present, but from the reader's point of view, I bought this book because of its title, and quite frankly if 62% of its content is about presenting a context to cold calling, I would give the book a different title.

That being said, I do value this book a… Read more
