Lahey's book

Anybody read My Bread by Jim Lahey? Some one on another site called him a"genius". How is the book?  Patrick

I got it as a Christmas gift.  I met Lahey at his Sullivan St. Bakery this past Nov. in NYC.  The book is great, hope to make more of his recipes, I really appreciate his over-all philosophy of baking, slow...very informative, excellent photos.

I too got the book for Christmas. I've yet to try a recipe out of it but perhaps this week-end...It looks interesting and he and Mark Bittman were who got me started on bread baking years ago.
