Right from first opening the book you see amazing pictures of Asian Dishes along with very clear and concise directions. The little nuggets of healthy information in the side bars rounds out the experience of creating a very tasty and flavorful dish that is also healthy! Enjoy!

The short reads written at the beginning of the recipes are very personable but helpful in deciding which recipes to use when(time of year, discomfort in body, etc.). Directions are precise and the annecdotes on the sides broaden my understanding of an asian mindset.The facts about certain ingredients or people seem to have been researched well. The facts tend to cause me to believe. There is several instances of cross referencing recipes and/or foods by page numbers which is helpful. I like the way the ingredients are highlighted, then separated from a sauce, seasonings or dressing ingredients by using a red font color. The other 'ingredients' in this book are the testimonial comments on how to use the included foods as medecine. I have not used these recipes to verify this point yet, but am eager to try. The pictures of the actual recipes made are very few, but there are many incidental pictures of certain ingredients like lemon grass and people important to this author. This is a responsible albeit a medicinal book using foods as remedy to good health and well being.
