Terrific book. The recipes are clear, simple, and they work. There is a lot of basic information about how to deal with all types of fish, as well as a guide to sustainability. I've made about a dozen dishes so far and they have all impressed. It's OK looking with clear pictures of most of the dishes, but this is content over style really. It's not a trendy lifestyle guide but a real, practical home cook's cook book. I wish there were more books like this. I would highly recommend to anyone who, like me, feels like a bit of a beginner when it comes to fish.
