    • nice starter book
      Verified Purchase

      Great book to get you started making sushi that even covers how to purchase fresh fish. I would have appreciated more pictures, but definitely good book overall.

    • Liked It A Lot, But ...
      Verified Purchase

      As a beginner in making sushi, I found the book invaluable. The extra sections on how to order and conduct oneself in a sushi bar were an unexpected bonus. The only reason I did not give this book five stars is that the URLs for online resources for equipment, spices, etc. were either no longer working or the site was not that well stocked. In one case, my security software blocked entry to a site on the grounds that it was dangerous. (Naturally, I didn't go there.) Otherwise, I just loved the book.

      Verified Purchase

      this is a great book for beginners, Overstock had it cheaper, the only thing i would have liked is more pictures, or at least one per recipe so you could see what it should look like but pictures are free online...
