I have to agree with the previous reviewer, just an excellent book, for both Fish lovers and would-be Fish lovers (which I am). The combination of good background information, intelligently and humourously written, on the Fish and how the buy and prepare them, along with original and tasty receipes, works excellently.
The book is well organised, easy to read and use. My knowlege of fish has increased dramatically and we are now actually looking forward to eating more fish (recommended healthy 3 meals per week?!) which seemed an impossibilty before this book...my man is a meat lover, but has really enjoyed the meals thus far, so we are making progress at long last..
One added benefit for us, being Brits living in France, is that finally I know which fish I am buying as the fish names in the book are shown in 5 languages...excellent idea, as the French can sometimes have 2 names for their fish, instead of the one name in English, which is not always easy as I have difficulty in recognising one fillet from another in the display.
Thanks for an excellent book, I would highly recommend it, particularly for anyone looking at eating more fish and trying to enjoy the experience.

To say this masterpiece is good would be the understatement of the century. For a fish lover like myself this book comes as a gift from the gods. It is fantastic, showing exactly what is what in the world of fish on your plate. William Black explains with great detail many of the fish available to the British fish connoisseur helping me pick and choose with his expert advice. Sophie Grigson transforms the job of cooking fish into an artform with ease. Congratulations to the two of you, a masterpiece to be proud of. EVERYONE BUY IT

This is a very good book for fish lovers. It gives all the basic information and many delicious recipes, suggesting alternative species for the less common ones. I particularly like the fact that it includes a lot of recipes for local fish (I live on the south coast). I bought a second hand copy because it's out of print and that arrived in perfect condition.

I already own this book and bought one for a friend who is already a competent cook but likes trying 'new fish'. A must if you have a good fish shop nearby.

It is the most comprehsive fish cook book I have come across - seems to be out of print so I was lucky to find one on Amazon pre owned and in fab condition.

I have a number of cookbooks but this one stands out... it's a really comprehensive and informative fish bible and has a great variety of recipes for each different type of fish. I had to buy my own copy having borrowed a friend's and soon realising I would not be returning it anytime soon (and probably with stains).

This book is the best book ever on fish. It does not require any fancy techniques, instructions are clear and the flavours are excellent. I had a Rick Stein book on fish, which I have to say, pales by comparison. A wonderful book for the novice and experienced cook.

I have recently decided to start cooking fish, and knowing nothing about fish (where to get it, what to get, how to cook it) I decided to buy this book.
It is brilliant, the information on fish is extensive and informative showing extensive research and knowledge. The recipies are also great.

Lovely book with many tasty recipes.
A few recipes are over-complicated,
but still inspiring .

Perhaps its size is a bit overwhelming, but the information inside is worth its weight in gold. Tells a lot that others don't mention.

Back cover was bent on delivery. But I didn't mind as price was good.
