This is my second bread book but my first focused on sourdough. This book just tell me out-of-the-box all important informations about baking sourdough. I can recommend this book to everyone - beginner or advanced baker as it offers really good reading. What is great about this book is also the small format, that makes from this book ultimate travel bread book you can take with you everywhere you go. From the time I have bought this book I recorded so much improvement in my baking technique and far better tasting bread. Definitively I will buy Whitley's first book "Bread Matters" in the future.

+ every recipe contain wholemeal flour (rye, wheat, spelt)
+ simple techniques on shaping
+ nice writing style
+ time tables
+ important informations about flours, water and sourdough process
+ handy size

- only a few recipes in total
- high possibility of page loss (strange paperback book construction)
- not so step-by-step recipes (uncommon structure)

I bought this book three weeks ago and have found it invaluable. I've been baking bread for around 25 years, and sourdough for around a year, and bought the book on a whim, considering that I already knew how to make sourdough bread - or so I thought. I've read the book three times now, and it's really consolidated a lot of stuff for me and resulted in much better bread - I've made two loaves and crumpets so far. I also understand my starter cultures much better now, too; though I have successfully made them before, but without really knowing what I was doing.

My only criticism - as an experienced editor, typesetter and graphic designer - are those aspects! I'd give it a radical overhaul with the recipe sections laid out far more clearly. It's very difficult to refer back to anything in the book: hence my having to read it three times, and now I need to read it a fourth time... but as it's such a joy to read, that's no great hardship. Makes me want to work in a bakery!

Clear instructions and schedules that give confidence it will work - it does. Demystifying explanations given with nothing unnecessary or magic included. Also, I use Andrew's suggestion to put some sourdough in my ordinary leavened bread machine bread - and that works too.

This book provides precise how to instructions that leave nothing out. With this help I've managed to make my first free standing sourdough loaf that isn't a pancake. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in bread making

I love Andrew's style. As a non-cook I began my baking bread by discovering a recipe of Andrew's on the internet (Daily Telegraph?) and from then on we have seldom bought any shop bread. I then discovered Bread Matters and fell in love with his style. I have just seen Do Sourdough and bought it for inspiration! OK, following his instructions on getting the best consistency for the dough and how to know when the gluten is developed is not easy but there is always a need for experience to be able to recognise these things. If Im was not prepared to find someone to show me what I should be feeling I have to be prepared to experiment. Just have faith in his instructions and keep trying and you will get good results. If I can do it anyone can!!

Oh, I am still a non-cook but now I make bread that everyone seems to love!
Thanks Andrew, you changed our lives for the better.

Another great book by Andrew Whitley. I'm not sure I would say just anyone could start making sourdough bread though without a little bit of bread making experience. I would recommend this book to someone with a bit of experience personally. For beginners I would suggest his first book Bread Matters. Both are excellent and the only books I use to make bread.

I had previously read, enjoyed and used the author's Bread Matters + I was a regular customer at his Cumbrian bakery from the early 1980s, so know that he bakes good bread. This book has helped me consolidate my own home baking with sourdough and I have immediately become less wasteful and made some great improvements to my baking. I'm not sure this is a book for beginners as it took me quite some time to get used to the whole concept and the different biological and chemical processes that are in play. Being confident with wet doughs and managing the variables of time, temp and raw ingredients takes time, but this book gives you the confidence and the specifications for various procedures to bake effectively. I'm looking forward to making a batch of crumpets as they look and sound delicious.
My reason for knocking one star off is that on my Kindle version the tables are corrupted by the formatting which makes them difficult to read and has nothing to do with the content.

The book is extremely useful and gives lots of tips for beginners to start making their first sourdough bred. I failed 3 times and had to throw my first loafs away but the fourth looked and tasted amazing. Now I am quite confident and a crumbs and crunchy top are my pride.
I can recommend the book to everyone who is passionate making healthy snd tasty food.
