I stopped by the Strand book store today. Here is my haul of $10.00 ea. bread baking books. Any quick reviews?

I own Clayton's Breads and Ultimate Bread.  Also a flea market purchase for about a buck apiece (which in itself  says something about the value of the books).

Used Clayton for two breads -- both outstanding

Have not used Ultimate -- but I like the descriptions and photos.

Clayton's was my first "proper" bread book, and aside from the extremely annoying volumetric measurements, I had great success with it. I confess, I usually omitted the dried milk powder. His batter corn bread remains my favourite cornbread.
