I read about this book on another blog and have been trying to get my hands on it from the library every since. But since I was 151 in line for 6 books I finally just ordered it from Amazon. Basically the book gives you several recipes you can make ahead of time and then cut off a piece of dough when you are ready to make a loaf of artisan bread. The dough will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, and the bread is suppose to get better the longer it sits. I made my first batch this afternoon and will let you know the results. They also have recipes for doughnuts, other types of breads and troubleshoots most problems you might run into. I will keep you posted and share whatever recipes I think are worth trying.
Edited: I found this youtube video telling more about the book in case someone is interested.

I borrowed the book from lorri and Wendi her sister and I whipped up this recipe.
Four ingredients, no kneading and keeps in the refrigerator up to two weeks. The basic recipe makes four loaves. It was easy and delicious. Everyone gathered around when we pulled our Artisan bread, hot from the oven. Delicious,So Good We say a winner. Thanks Lorri.
