Very few books cover this cuisine, so i may be rating this more highly than it deserves. I have one other that i got in the mid to late 1970s written by a Burmese who came to the US as a student. Clearly that person was in an area that had limited access to Asian and Southeast Asian foodstuffs, because so many recipes are not quite authentic. Marks's book is better.
