Brilliant, Utterly Brilliant,
This review is from: The PDT Cocktail Book: The Complete Bartender's Guide from the Celebrated Speakeasy (Hardcover)
After reading the review "Good, but not great, cocktail book" by Jude I decided to write my own review of this book to set things right. As stated in the foreword that David Wondrich penned, this is the book that others wish they had written. No level of detail is spared; no secrets held back from this celebrated cocktail haunt. The content, format and illustrations are transcendent. To give it 3 stars because it lacks pictures of cocktails or descriptions of how a cocktail tastes, is like saying Shakespeare should have included cliff's notes, illustrated each scene and made a note about how the audience should feel. If the world came to and unfortunate end and cocktails revered to vodka martinis, a millenia later this book would be the Rosetta Stone that would bring back a cocktail renaissance.
