Has some good recipes but not the best book out there.

I agree with the other reviewer who says, "I've made a decent amount of recipes from this book and I feel like I'm able to write a good review now for this book. What I like about it is how quick and easy the recipes are. Makes going raw that much easier. I also like the variety of recipes- smoothies, drinks, soups, starters, mains etc. Unfortunately, after making seven odd recipes, there are only a few I thought were absolutely delicious and would make again.'
Well, I've made more then 7 myself and I have liked a few of them quite a bit, but some are really not good, I second the cream of miso Shiitake as not good, raw shiitake are just rubber! I wish everything I tried was at least tasty but maybe not to my taste, but some were just bad.
I do think that the book is well laid out, recipes are clear and the equipment needed is not as intense as some raw books. This would be a good book to have once you know what raw tastes you like and can gauge say what raw shiitake's would taste like.
My favorite raw cookbook is, Going Raw by Judita Wignall, everything I've made in that one has been great.
