    Comments about Short and Sweet:

    This is my go-to bible for baking, especially for bread, but great tips for all types of baking. Dan Lepard writes in a simple, straightforward and engaging manner and seems to have thought of all the questions that might arise in my head as I'm cooking. He has taken the mystery out of bread and yeast baking for me (although I ain't a master yet!).
