Reading this book was a very insightful experience on the craft and the limitless happiness behind the art of sushi. By reading this book, you will set upon a journey that will bring your Inner Sashimi past true Sushi Enlightenment to rise to Nigiri Nirvana (in which your Sashimi sits upon the Vinegared Rice of Wisdom). You will become a piece of sushi by the end of this book. My knowledge of sushi has ultimately improved even though the recipes are somewhat Americanized, except for a few. This ...more

This really should have been entitled Making Sushi for Dummies, while I still enjoyed the content it was not what I had in mind when I purchased it.

What I wanted from this book was information the ingredients of common sushi and the more adventurous types of sushi.

I got this book thinking it would teach me more about ordering sushi, but this is about how to prepare it at home. Not a bad book by any means, but not what I was hoping for. I wanted pronunciation guides, pictures to ID various types of sushi and explanations to the different types of sushi.

Think you can't make sushi at home? Now, you can! Sushi for Dummies is a great book for anyone interested in serving up rolls or nagiri at home. Inside there are great walkthroughs for how to cook rice, how to choose vegetables, how to cut vegetables, and what works and doesn't work inside and outside of homemade sushi. The choices for types of sushi are flexible and easy to accommodate any sushi eater. Making sushi is time consuming, but it's fun, worth the experience, and still very good!

What it lacks in photo's it makes up for in text and drawings.
The problem perhaps is that in Sushi appearance is almost important as taste. Whilst the preparation of the dishes is well explained, a picture, in this case, is worth any number of words.
However it is excellent value for the money and worth getting.

It was a bit silly and over-enthusiastic (so many! exclamation points! your sushi! will be great!!), but contained useful information.
