What this book does for me is to give some background on the various types of adult beverages, how to mix things with ratios, and gives a very good background on what goes with what as well as the effect of adding or subtracting various mixtures. From little things such as scoring a piece of lemon or orange rind to the color of the ice cube had me learn a thing or two.
If you're looking for some background on how you can make things a heck of a lot better than just rum and coke, then this book is for you!
Note on Kindle formatting: Very good - the pictures worked well and the text was formatted nicely. There were a couple minor issues - like different font on a couple of headings here & there - but nothing major. My real quibble is that the chart at the back of the book that shows 'what-goes-with-what' seems to be much, much lighter that the regular text - making it very hard to read on a Kindle. I managed by increasing the font size, but that was a bit of a disappointment. I'm sure it had to to with the chart being an image rather than text, but it WAS still readable - just not as easily as the text was.
Very, very helpful to any and all mixology enthusiasts - highly recommend.
