I looked through a lot of Sushi books before choosing this one at a book store. It has great pictures (that always make me hungry) and is practical for learning to make sushi. It goes into detail about the ingredients of sushi and their Japanesse names as well. This has helped me in the sushi bars. All around a good book for sushi lovers who want to learn the basics of making sushi and more.
