The content of this book is unrivalled. It is clear, concise and interesting. The knowledge contained in it surpasses anything I have seen before. However it only gets three stars because the first time I opened the book to read it, five pages detached them selves from the binding and will need sticking in with Sellotape ! On a book costing as much as this did, it is not what I would expect. The binding looks good, but it is clearly inadequate and the book needs careful handling. This is especially unacceptable in a book that will be kept open flat while using it to make bread ! My message to the publisher is, if you are going to produce the best book there is on a subject, and charge a price commensurate with that, don't spoil the whole thing by cutting corners to save money on the binding. You've ruined what would have been the ultimate bread book.
