Artisan bread in 5 min a day

I was skeptical to say the least. You make a simple dough with more than the usual amount of water. Let it sit at room temp for 2-5 hours, refrigerate for up to 5 days(if it lasts that long). Pull off a chunk of dough. Shape, proof, bake & you have a loaf of crusty bread. Here's a link to the article where I found the recipe. I might just buy the book after making this bread.

I didn't have a bakers peel or tile so I just used a sheet pan with some flour & cormeal mixture. I put a pan of hot water on the bottom of the oven rack & threw some ice cubes in for steam. Since the dough needs to be kneaded a bit before shaping I kneaded in some roasted garlic & rosemary & it was seriously just really good crunchy bread.
Has anyone else tried it?

I should've put this in the home cooking section..sorry.
