This cookbook vastly expanded my horizons on Indian food (I had no idea what I was doing until I read her descriptions and instructions).
I also learned how to make sushi and other Japanese dishes from this book. I think her selection of rice dishes is amazing.
When I finally moved to a place where there were Japanese, Indian and other Asian restaurants, I found the flavors similar to the recipes that Madhur Jaffrey had taught me to love.
If you want to make a wide variety of Asian dishes, this is a great cookbook for you.
I've even enjoyed this cookbook from time to time as a relaxing evening read. Just ask my wife.
I'd love to see an updated edition. Many of the ingredients that the book says can be found only in specialty or ethnic markets (like wasabi powder, bitter melons, and fry-them-yourself poppadums) have started appearing in better mass-market grocery stores.
