Worth it! Lots of great recipes for all different kinds of breads and jams. This was recommended to me by a family member and now that I have my own copy - I second her recommendation. Recipes are described, ingredient amounts for 1 1/2 and 2 lb loaves are clearly listed and any, if necessary, steps are clearly noted.
