I didn't see it last night, but I'm watching it now online. Click on "Bread Expert".

Update: here is a better link.

I just saw a review in the TLS about his book: Good Bread is Back.  Has anyone read it? The review was very positive. Sorry if this is an old issue.

I really enjoyed the TLS review, which is a few pages long and summarizes a lot of the information in the book.  I think it was interesting to me from a historical and cultural standpoint.  I definitely wouldn't want to have been a bakers' boy 100 years ago! I won't buy the book, but may read parts of it if the library carries it.

My review of Good Bread is Back is here.

It has been a few months since I've read it. My opinion hasn't really changed in that time... it is fairly arcane, but if you are a Francophile, a professional baker, or interested in labor history is quite interesting. For just a everyday baker? I wouldn't suggest it.
