The author explains very clearly and gives precise directions so you're not left trying to figure out what to do. Some ethnic cookbooks seem to assume you have knowledge that you don't about ethnic food preparation so it's nice that the author imparts that knowledge to you as well. I do cook quite a bit so I didn't find anything really daunting but if you're a novice cook just starting out you may look at the recipes and think you can't make them. Definitely not so, most of the recipes have very few ingredients (especially if you compare them to many traditional, European recipes) and don't take a huge amount of time. (There are exceptions to this in the book; read the entire recipe through once to figure out if you have the time for it.) The author helps you out quite a bit also in that she tells you what things you can make ahead of time and freeze - there's actually a LOT you can make ahead and freeze which definitely helps out in the entertaining department.
I've made two recipes so far - the one for hummus and the one for tabbouleh because those are my two favorites. Both turned out phenomenal. I'm probably not going to like store bought hummus after this.
The only problem an individual would probably encounter, however, is the ability to obtain many of these ingredients. Many recipes call for standard things any American grocery would carry but there are other specialty items (like Tahini sauce for instance) that may be hard to find if you don't live in an urban area. Milwaukee has several specialty grocery stores like Whole Foods and Middle Eastern groceries that I've found the ingredients in easily but if you live in a rural area in the middle of North Dakota, you're gonna have a problem.
