The recipes in this book are delicious and fun to make. They leave lots of room for experimentation and creativity. The recipe for Asian Paté would knock anyone's socks off!
I found the book very educational and inspiring as well: Nomi does a great job of explaining the benefits of a raw diet and emphahsizes the importance of organic foods. Various not-so-common ingredients are well-defined for beginners too.
My only suggestion for improving the book would be to have the ingredients indexed a little better (for instance, if you're looking for that yummy dressing you made with dulse and red pepper previously, you won't find it under "dulse" or "red pepper" because it's indexed in the back under "Dressing Del Mar")... but this is only a small inconvenience.
Also, I became a little frustrated when many of the recipes I wanted to make required a juicer equipped with a "blank screen"... I have a pretty good (fairly expensive) juice extractor, but it doesn't have a blank screen, so I couldn't figure out how to make the recipes.
All in all, I would say this is a very worthwhile and inspiring book.

This book does have beautiful pictures!! And the recipes are mostly not too complicated!! But it is not a basic book for a beginner...for much of it you need those harder-to-find ingredients, AND a kitchen full of uncommon appliances to prepare this stuff.
