"Bread Alone"
by Daniel Leader 

I'm still digesting this book, but so far, I like it.

Clear instructions, good recipes, lots of nice information about bakers in France. However, I do think he makes things harder for himself, and you, than is necessary.  For example, he has you premix white and whole wheat flour to make his "20% Bran Flour" which is more like a French flour.  That's nice, but now you have another bin of flour.  It's easier to mix the flours when you mix the bread.

Still, it is recommended and can find a 1993 hardback
