Bread Book Title, upon Request

Someone requested the book title for the bread recipe. It's Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg MD and Zoe Francois

[The one thing I will note is that the recipes tend to go sourdough fairly quickly on us. (The author's mention this, but it happens faster for us than for them, possibly because we use whole wheat flour?) As a result, we often only make half a batch, and bake everything all at once. The baked bread can turn sourdough if not enough moisture is baked out of it, but with a little experimenting, that problem can be solved fairly easy...more easily than the fast turning of the dough to sourdough.]

The same authors also have another book out (Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients)that I dearly want but haven't yet purchased because it's so new, so I make no claims. If it is as good as the original, however, it should be fabulous! Having gone to eating whole-grain breads a few years ago, I now love them and prefer them over white or wheat bread. The more grain, the better, as far as I'm concerned, and if the bread has nuts in it, I'm in heaven. (Thank you, Arnold Bread, for Health Nut!)
