Format: Paperback
This is a pretty good beginner-intermediate sushi book. The title is rather enigmatic because aside from a few fancy "party-like" sushi types that it describes, this book is really just a nuts-and-bolts guide to sushi making. In fact it appears to be a companion book to "Sushi Making at Home"; a combination of the two books would provide an excellent reference for standard sushi making.
Sushi for Parties covers the making of Maki sushi (though briefly and in conjunction with the making of specialty rolls), Futo-maki, Nigiri, then various "other" sushis (Chirashi, Inari, Bou, Oshi), it also provides a few recipes for soups and talks a little bit about the tradition of serving specific sushi during different seasons. By far the best part of this book is the section on Nigiri sushi. Although, you might think Nigiri would be the easiest sushi to make, those who have tried know that this isn't the case. The nigiri section encompasses 20 pages of the 80 page book and is very well illustrated with clear instructions on how to prepare different topings.
I should also say that because of the illustrations, this book, and Sushi Making at Home, make excellent coffee table books. I have a tendancy to leave mine out, and unattended guests always leaf through them.

Format: Paperback
This book gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make all kinds of whimsical sushi dishes. It's as much fun to look at the pictures as to actually make the recipes. However, it's best if you live near a Japanese grocery, as a lot of the ingredients probably aren't at your local supermarket.

This book is awesome for those that have never prepared sushi before. It is well laid out and leaves a lot for the imagination. Excellent pictures and instruction on how the finished product should look. Well thought out!
