I trust the info from Breadtopia, was wondering if anyone has any comments on this book.

Thanks Ed, it looked good to me, glad to hear the great review. I need another book like I need a hole in my head, but I may order a copy of this one.

You aren't alone about needing more cook books. My wife has about 350 and adding all the time.We have purchased at least 20 pizza and bread books in past year. I think its a obsession with her...Pizza and bread..Mine too.

This book is awesome, great information in there. The one pizza recipe i tried out of it is garbage and he even says its ok to use a rolling pin  ::)
The book still has a lot of knowledge in it about why ingredients go in, how the gluten develops, how to properly mix and in what order, etc etc etc. Everything is in baker's percents which I am shocked most books aren't.
