Default Good Baking Books?

I was wondering if anybody knows any good baking books,
not so much recipes, but what different ingredients do, the equipment, mixing methods, baking methods, what disguishes a cookie from cake or a brownie from a cake, etc.
Online sites about this stuff is good too, or if anybody here can help too- it's all appreciated

Thank you!

Do you mean like Kitchen Science?

http://www.amazon.com/New-Kitchen-Sc...dp_ob_title_bk

That's the one I've read. I'm sure there are others.

The review seems like what I'm looking for, but one solely for baking,
I don't want to get a book where most of it is about things I won't use,
maybe the author wrote another book for that...I'll go check

I was going to recommend Ratio by Michael Ruhlman, but it's also more generally focused. The first chapter would serve your purpose, though...it's all focused on various doughs.

Oh, Alton Brown did a book that'd work.

That's perfect! I watched a video of his about cookies yesterday, actually, and he's awesome, thanks so much!
I'll try to order it as soon as I can
