I borrowed this book from the local library after deciding to make my own bread without a breadmaker and feeling daunted at the challenge. The lack of photos did not concern me. There is plenty of detail and description about what to expect from dough consistency and trouble-shooting. My first loaf "European Peasant Bread" came out perfect and has been approved by German visitors starved of quality bread in New Zealand. I am buying this book now as it's so good.

I bought this book full of high expectations after I saw a few videos from these authors and saw the lovely crusty breads they make. How disappointed I was when I opened the book and there was not a single photograph in it! Very hard to imagine what the different breads should look like without photographs. I personally love cook books with photographs so this was a total disappointment for me. The book now gathers dust in my bookcase and I'm very sorry I wasted my money on it.
