    It would have been much better if I had a basic understanding of bread baking instead of a craving for sourdough. I became hopelessly confused with the directions, got impatient when my dough was not quite as high as she said it should be, and baked anyway, with the result of a tiny, 8 lb brick of dough with a nearly raw interior and thick and hard exterior. Note to self, a book will not make me an expert.
