This is a tiny jewel of a book on sushi. The photography is lovely but I seriously doubt I will ever get to eat at the restaurant it is for. With each fish listed Jiro lets you know what time of year he serves it and why. There are some tips on eating sushi at the end of the book along with information about how to get a reservation at his restaurant. The book almost seems to be geared as a book to get as a gift for eating at the restaurant instead of trying to take pictures of every serving of fish.
I was surprised that some of the fish is aged to bring out the best in it. Each fish almost has a certain way of being treated to showcase the best flavors. This is a really lovely gift book for the foodie on your shopping list.
