As any chef will tell you, if you want to bore your dinner guests silly then serve them a plate of monochromatic slop devoid of visual acuity. A formless, flaccid tuna casserole comes quickly to mind. What this clever book does (one hopes) is inspire you to elevate ordinary dishes into works of art with simple tips, instructions and recipes for more than 100 sweet, savoury and colourful garnishes. (You could tart up that casserole with some quickly sculpted vegetables, for example.) Five sections show techniques, tools, ingredients and designs used by chefs in hoitytoity restaurants that you can apply at home, with step-by-step photos showing exactly how to do it. With a few basic skills, you too can serve food with flair and impress everyone.--Byron Eade"Ottawa Citizen" (11/25/2010)

With that said, I first hated this book but then I realized that it was beyond perfect for what I needed it for, for helping students whom I am mentoring learn the basic steps for learning these steps.
So in the end, it helped me more than I expected, and it gave me amazing flashbacks of when I first started learning the basics of the steps of plating.
This book breaks down many steps of plating, from plating with fruit, to veggies, it teaches you many things that you will love to learn.
So if you are first starting out with plating or looking for a book where you not only can learn but also teach these steps, you found it here...
However, if you are an expert at plating and looking for a book to enhance your perfection, this isn't the book for you, this book is for beginners or for those after the beginning stage.
TONS of pictures
TONS of examples and techniques
The book is kind of small, which makes the gorgeous images small.
Not much theory on presentation
The organization of the book could be better.
