First of all I know nothing about cheese.
This is my first cheese book I have looked at. With that being said here's my review:

This book has some good points: 1) a dictionary of specialized cheese lingo in the back which gives pretty good descriptions of the vocabulary used in cheese making. 2) it has many cheeses, and lots of pictures for a small book.And brief sections on: 3)which cheeses are best in which times of year and 4) how to read cheese labels 4) how to serve cheese/ pair with wine. It actualy covers a lot in such a small book. (even how to introduce cheese to children). It's written by an expert french cheese maker.

However, the book is translated from french and therefore suffers a bit in english. Sometimes it's a bit hard to understand what they are saying since it still carries the french way of speaking though using english words. That's just to warn you. Plus I was disappointed that it was so small in size... but it's cheap, and I guess easy to carry around if you need to refer to it at some cheese market. It's not a bad deal for the price and it's a fairly good introduction to a broad range of cheese topics.

Format: Paperback
A phenomenal resource for any lover of great cheese. The author's knowledge and practical experience come through clearly. A little weak on coverage of American Artesan cheeses, but otherwise a good read and a great reference.

This is a great book. I am in culinary arts school and I've used this quite a bit in school. It's also a good book if you just want to learn more about cheese and you love cheese.
