I have this book and the advanced baking and pastry by Michel Suas when I took my beginning and advanced baking classes at my Culinary school and I have to say I used this book more. I baked similar products from both books and i like the ones i got from this book. Plus, i think that this book is easier to follow, not because this is for beginners and the other one is for advanced bakers, but because the recipes are laid out much better to read and understand. The ingredients and recipes and procedures are almost the same on both books but this book is just more easier to look at. The advantage of the advanced baking and pastry book is that it goes more in depth on information on some topics like artisan breads, and it has fancier cakes and desserts than the professional baking book.

I bought this for my baking classes in college. This book is so good, I find myself reading way beyond the assigned reading for classes. So much information, excellent step-by-step instructions with pictures, and it explains the science that makes baking work. Definitely a book I'll keep for the rest of my career.

Book is great, only major changes are that this version does not include method cards and the recipes that call for fresh yeast in the 5th edition have been replaced with instant in this one.

I like it. Plenty of technical information and fills in the blanks about the 'why' for anything I question that other sources may jot answer. I like the history tidbits given, and the recipes are pretty decent as well. I bought this used for a baking class. We use it every day.

This is a great book for those wanting to go pro. It is loaded with recipes and valuable information. I would not recommend for the average home baker.

My wife (for whom I bought this) says: Its pretty good for a text book. Dont expect to learn everything from it - and a small number of the recipes simply don't turn out well. Other than being overpriced like most textbooks, this is pretty good. She may end up keeping it instead of reselling it.
