Review quote

Everywhere I travel in the world there seems to be a sushi bar awaiting me. Now, for the first time, I understand the culinary phenomenon with informed eyes and stomach. Sasha Issenberg's "THE SUSHI ECONOMY" is a riveting and witty inquiry into the raw fish explosion. As a non-fiction stylist, he's first-rate. A must read!
