Typo in new book, Yikes!

Written By Peter Reinhart
Monday, 27 October 2014 Peter's Blog

Hi Folks, An Amazon reviewer found a typo in one of the recipes, found on page 63.  The water amount by weight is correct but the volume measurement should be 1 3/4 cups, not 3 3/4 cups!  If you already have the book, please make that correction. Sorry about that. We’ll get it fixed for the next printing.  Thanks!
