52 Loaves: One Man's Relentless Pursuit of Truth, Meaning, and a Perfect Crust

52 Loaves: One Man's Relentless Pursuit of Truth, Meaning, and a Perfect Crust - William   Alexander Very satisfying. "In fact, my parents' generation didn't have to deal with half the decisions, ethical or otherwise, we have to make today. Forget about paper or plastic. They didn't have to select from a dozen cable TV packages or choose between a PC and a Macintosh; they didn't have to decide between free-range and mass-produced chicken, between well-travelled organic and local conventional carrots; and they certainly never had to pick their own flights (and seats) from a zillion listings on the Internet. Sometimes I feel as if my head is going to explode. Fortunately I have a usually reliable antidote to this neuron overload: I retreat to the kitchen to do what men and women have been doing for six thousand years -- bake bread on a stone." p.34
