Fish sauce

I'm trying to do more Southeast Asian cooking, but getting my head around the ingredients is tough. In his book Thai Food, David Thompson has recipes that call for both "fish sauce" and "fermented fish sauce." But when I shop at Thai and Vietnamese stores, I don't know how to distinguish between the two. All I see are different brands of of black stuff labeled "fish sauce." Help!

Also, feel free to recommend your favorite brands.
