I'm in the UK, so using either Tesco fast action dried yeast or Allisons dried yeast. The breads are rising quite fast and once even collapsed, so when making plain bread with no seeds or cheese or such, i put tiny bit less yeast.
There are some breads with ingredients that might be difficult to get in the UK and some that i know i won't make, like rye with sauerkraut but this is the case with every cookbok i got, some recipes i love, and some i wouldn't touch with a pole. Anyways, i highly reccommend this book to everyone with breadmaker.
As with any US cookery book, you will encounter some ingredients that are unfamiliar but obtainable if you find the common UK names and others that are simply unobtainable from the usual places such as supermarkets. In some instances, a little time spent on-line will show that there are a few suppliers based in the UK that stock a variety of US and/or Canadian products, probably not everything you may want but some. They usually supply the US citizens who either work here or live here with a British partner. You may be able to order from some suppliers in the US although some will not permit overseas orders. Some other ingredients may be found in health-food shops as they are standard vegan ingredients (the vegan movement is much stronger in the US than here). To use some recipes may need time and advance planning so that ingredients are to hand when needed.
This is a book that includes broad advice and a wide variety of recipes, not just bread. Not all machines will have the features to use every recipe provided you have the ingredients, but they will be in the minority at the worst. Overall, a very valuable offering worthy of the full 5-stars if only its content was more UK-friendly.
There is a companion volume, 'More Bread Machine Magic' that contains a larger variety of recipes.

PS My loaves have never collapsed or been overly salty (and I'm sensitive to that), but they do require a bit more flour. This is probably due to my machine and not the recipes, which are well-tested.
The book has a great intro section that educates you about ingredients, such as keeping yeast in the freezer to extend its life. There is a large range of recipes. And, my favorite feature, each recipe gives measures for 3 loaf sizes. I have made each size based on the number eating. I am not big on cooking; this book gives great results for your kitchen time.
I am ordering a copy of this and the next book (More Bread Machine Magic). I plan on giving one to my sister and keeping one for myself. The hard part will be deciding which one to keep!
