Cresci: The art of leavened dough...can you review it ??

Can anyone who is currently using or has used the Cresci Art of Leavening Dough book please tell me if all of the formulas are for large scale baking  . I am interested in the book after reading the table of contents on Amazon and seeing a couple of examples of the breads. Thanks in advance for any info on the book. Caroline

I have used book for a number of years while baking at several bakeries, Beautiful to look at, difficult to use in that formulas assume much baking experience, which may or may not work for all. I did find the translation and the writing so romantic, so very Italian. Would I buy the book again, no, yet I am glad to have it in my library.
