A massive tome that assumes you've lost the manual that came with your machine and repeats the most basic steps over and over. Many of the recipes demand hand shaping and baking, others need complex use of the dough cycle, not really for a bread machine. Many others are for a specific balance of ingredients attributed to other famous bakers. This is a book for people who like to follow precise instructions rather than to experiment, but it's an excellent one for that as long as you have American ingredients to hand. Canadians should definitely stick with Washburn&Butt.

This book has various recipes for one bread. Also has recipes for pasta, bagel, english muffins, and other everyday breads.
I recommend this for anyone who enjoys freshly homemade bread.
