I've only had this book a couple of weeks and I've already tried 8 recipes and they've all been excellent - especially the Split Pea Fritter Curry - love it!
The book is well laid-out with a section for each of the Asian cuisines covered and so far the recipes have been easy to follow. I order to get the most out of this book I would recommend that one stocks the larder with essential Asian ingredients/sauces/oils/spices; with that in place you can easily create fantastic meals in very little time and without having to do much shopping on a daily basis.
There are several reviews on here that say that some ingredients are 'hard to source'. I'm not saying you'll find everything in your local small supermarket, but virtually any ingredient is available with a little effort these days. It all depends upon how serious you are about trying to discover food worth cooking and eating. Some people just like something to moan about - be positive and go find things!!
The book is very well laid out, with clear, easy to follow recipes sectioned into their country cuisine. Especially impressive is the Korean section, the dishes from which taste exactly like the real thing. While overall there have been a few duds, the majority of the recipes I have tried have been amazing and so close to what I remember.
The only problem some people might find is that, being quite authentic dishes, there are a lot of ingredients that people might not be familiar with, and that, depending on where you live, might be hard to get hold of. The ingredients lists are also in particularly small print, which for me makes for a bit of squinting mid recipe when I'm buzzing around the kitchen!
