Amazon.com Books Bestsellers
As far as I can tell, every time I've browsed Amazon's bestseller list in bread books , I've found Hertzberg's and Francois' "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" on top. It's typically followed by BBA and an assortment of books on bread machine recipes.
How popular is this book really? BBA is mentioned here a lot, but the "5 minutes a day" book more rarely. I've heard about the method (I think you keep a basically un-kneaded slab of dough in your fridge, and then tear off chunks that are allowed to come to room temperature and then baked), but is it really "revolutionizing home baking" (as its title implies)?
It sounds like a method that would be very well suited for those who can't/won't invest as much time in bread baking as a lot of us loafers do. Has anyone on here used the book/method? If so, I'd be curious to hear what you think!
