first time paging through this book, I didn't think I would like it. in fact, I contemplated returning it to the library without actually reading it. it's not pretty. there are no pictures.

Already a fan of Bittman's, so a cookbook focused entirely on my carb-y love language? Yes, please.

Admittedly, I tend to favor cookbooks with photographs of completed recipes. I enjoy seeing what a finished product might look like, and appreciate the ideas for serving and presentation.

I know I am in a minority but I really am not impressed with Mark Bittman recipes and think this book is not very well written, organized or edited.

True to the title of this book, Bittman does tell you how to bake everything. The book includes comprehensive instructions about complicated creations and sections for vegans as well as people following gluten-free diet. A great baking reference book.

Very detailed, I like the options for recipes. This is a book I'd consider purchasing in hardcover. (I read this on Kindle). One drawback.....color photos would have made it an awesome book!

Another ginormous Bittman tome. Lots of fundamental information and tons of recipes with variations to try.
