Two stars off for the worst graphics I have seen in decades. Sorry, it is that bad.

There are plenty of photos, but they are worse than newsprint resolution. Some look like registration-failure type of misprints you used to see in the daily papers.
Maps and diagrams are pixelated- you can actually see the squares form the fact that the graphic is so much worse than the printing technology.

Ridiculous, especially when a less expensive book like "Cognac: A Liguid History" can include art-book quality full color photos.

Use the Look Inside feature and realize that the pictures shown don't look like they do because of your monitor, they really are that bad.

The information is A+.
Presentation, other than the visuals, is B.
Nonetheless, A+, B, and F = C (3 stars) I'm just flabbergasted that anyone would let their book get trashed in this fashion.

Jam packed with fantastic info on the region, the people, the process, the grapes varietals and most importantly of all the brandy and how it ages. A must for any spirit lover and visitor to France.

I liked the info on blending and ages, but it was not presented in a "modern" manner - rather old fashioned "notes". However, it did enable me to find a more interesting armagnac. so it was worth the money....
