I loved this book, I was laughing all the way too the Asian market, all I have to say is that IF you cant use this book, you need to find a 6 year old to explain it to you.I loved this book and it was so entertaining.

Bought this because I was taking a Sushi class and wanted to get a head start. Finished it in one day and have already made sushi before going to class. Well worth getting if you like sushi.

After many attempts making sushi at home, I gave up. I had great ingredients, but could never get the rice right; too dry, too sticky, no flavor, too much flavor. So when I saw this title, I knew this book was my answer to my sushi-making frustration. Everything I've made so far has turned out perfect: Spicy Tuna Hand Rolls, California Inside-Out Rolls, and the impressive-looking (and delicious) Shrimp Finger Sushi. I can't wait to try each and every recipe.

Finally, a book that takes the guesswork out of making sushi! The authors explain everything you need to know to make and enjoy sushi. I learned a lot about sushi bar etiquette and ordering, so I no longer feel insecure when going to a sushi bar. Highly recommended!
