Specifics of baking

Any baking book I've read talks about how important it is to properly weigh (not measure) your flour because it's so easy to over or under measure the amounts you're using. I've noticed very few recipes actually have weighed amounts of flour or other ingredients. Since baking is so precise, I'm curious as to why more bakers don't show this information?

Agree with Honeybee--and must add I find it so annoying. I have less respect for baking books without weights--which is not to say I don't use them lol.
