holidays are coming... which peter reinhart book should I ask for?

curiousinthekitchen | Nov 30, 200902:33 PM

Right now I don't have any of them. I'd call myself an advanced-beginner baker with limited ambitions: I'd like to make good bread and to learn about the process. I've made lots of no-knead bread, some recipes from Cooks Illustrated, and I've done some demoralizing experimentation with whole wheat sourdough.

Reinhart seems like to man to look to, but should I ask for Bread Bakers Apprentice or the new book? Some people suggest the newer one has clearer and better instructions; others that it's just BBA "lite". Or should I go straight to the whole grain book, because good advice on baking whole grain breads is so hard to find? Any thoughts? Thanks!
