Best bread book ever?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Making Classic Breads with the Cutting-edge Techniques of a Bread Master (Hardcover)
This may well be the best book on the subject of home bread-making ever. The first 100 or so pages are definitely the best dissertation on bread making you're likely to come across. Gratifying, too, to see recommended some of the things I've been doing instinctively.
I don't understand the gripes about "cup measurements" - my copy has both cups and ounces. Grams would have been better, but one has to make allowances for the colonies, and conversion is hardly a chore - it's not as if one has to convert all the recipes at once. For anyone wanting to go with the US measurements, measuring cups are widely available, so I don't see that it's any sort of a problem.
Buy this book, and it's precursor, Crust and Crumb (also in cups and ounces) - you won't be disappointed.

Agreed...what's the big deal just get yourself a set of cups for a few pounds

Many digital kitchen scales have the option of metric or imperial.
