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.
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..
