Customer feedback about this book: "Positive: the author of the book is really skilled at carving fruits and vegetables. His skills even show in one of the simplest carving projects such as carving leaves out of a papaya. Negative: The book is not for total beginners who have never carved fruits and vegetables in Thai way due to the bookish translation. Also, the measurements are done in cms and inches for different projects, not cms all the way or inches all the way. That is confusing." Maki Takahashi, KY, USA
