As a sometime writer on the subject of drinking and religion, I looked forward to reading this book as soon as I heard about it.

The first part of the book describes the history of the beer, of fasting, and what led him to the project, which I found interesting. He also goes into the medical aspects of the fast in great detail, including all that could go wrong, healthwise, from living on beer and water alone for over six weeks, which I found less interesting.

But the meat of the book is the daily journal of his experiences during the 46 days, and this part is excellent. His little project attracted international media attention, including folks like CNN and Fox News. J. gets on his soapbox a few times, but mostly it's just a window into the home life of a regular guy with an odd mission.

You should check it out.

Catholics do not fast on Easter Sunday. Yes, they do fast on Good Friday, AND Ash Wednesday. This made me question how many other mistakes the author made regarding the practices of other faiths. But, how could I stop reading, especially because I was reading during Lent, having given up beer for all 46 days? It was comforting reading about a guy drinking beer EVERY DAY during Lent. I had never tried the Paulaner brand, and my, oh my, how good it tasted upon returning from Easter Sunday Mass! How good God is, and man also, having figured out how to take a tiny bit of God's creation and produce beer with it. I love being Catholic, and beer is close behind, after my hubby and daughter, of course!

First a disclaimer. I actually know the author. He has been a beer geek long before craft beer was considered cool. In fact I knew him well enough to call him nuts when he was first talking about this, and again while he was actually doing it. Followed his journey first online while he was actually doing this, and later after the book came out. And you know what..he was nuts..but in a way that made me appreciate being that way. I actually learned a lot about him by reading that book, and his book actually helped understand what real strength and determination about something you believe in can be..

It's not a beer geek book..but there is lots of talk about beer. Not a book about religion..but yes there is some of that too. I look at this book as a guide to doing something you set your mind to. You may not succeed, or you might succeed beyond your imagination..but the journey that gets you there is what really counts..
