Book recommendations?

I'd like to see if there are any good books on techniques recepies for using multigrain and ancient nuts or flours such as whole wheat, Rye, Quinoa, Soy, Almond, Flaxseed, etc.

Any books that has general in-depth tips and analysis on gastronomy and science would be really nice as well. I'd like to see if I can find or make a recipe that can make bread that much more enjoyable, flavorful, and healthier.

It may not give you everything you want, but Peter Reinhart's _Whole Grain Breads_ is a smart and useful book.

I notice this book is from 2007, but I doubt this info is irrelevant or anything. I'm wondering if there was any new discoveries from then until now from newer literatures.
