A good reason *not* to get a bread machine...

This may have been discussed before--if so, please disregard...

There's a new bread cookbook (the name escapes) which claims to tell
us how to make fresh *yeast* bread in less than 90 minutes (that's
including two risings and baking). The "secret" is to use a food
processor to mix and knead the dough, and then to put the processor
bowl into the microwave where it takes just 15 minutes for
the dough to rise, given the appropriate microwave temperature, phase
of the moon, etc.

Two questions:

i) Has anyone tried this system yet? How does it compare to traditional
bread? Are there some kinds of bread which work better than others?

ii) Could anyone give a summary of the system for those of us too cheap
to buy the book?

May be a good reason not to use a bread maker, if it works.
