Each chapter reads like the most interesting wine history lesson in print and simultaneously like a page ripped from the private diary of the most interesting person you know. After reading a review you will not only want to go and find the wine right away, you will find yourself wishing you could share a bottle with the author.
Some reviews increase your knowledge and shape your opinion. These reviews do that, but more importantly they infect the reader with the same passion for wine that radiates from every one of Turi’s paragraphs.
If you love wine you need this book. If you love great writing you need this book. If you love great wine writing your life will not be complete until you add this collection to your personal library.
Praise for John Turi and A Drinker With a Writing Problem:
Best book about wine and the love of wine I've ever read. The author's personal touch through out every chapter makes for some very compelling reading, it was hard to put the book down. – David Burrell
John’s wine reviews are part history lesson, part personal epiphany, part peep show, part discovery, and they are always peppered with a dash of enthusiastic admiration. - Ken Robidoux, Founding Editor-in-Chief of ConnotationPress.com
This is a great book to read, for the wine lover or even if you aren't! The author is such a fabulous story teller, sharing what amounts to be his wine tasting journal, with all of us. The stories, from the heart, will enlighten you. He also shares fascinating information about wine, in general and the wine he is writing about. This book makes a fabulous gift for the wine drinker in your life! Best book about wine and the love of wine I've ever read. The author's personal touch through out every chapter makes for some very compelling reading, it was hard to put the book down. Can't wait for the movie adaptation! :-) I highly recommend this book for wine novices all the way to master sommeliers alike, there's something for everybody in this book - get it, read it, fill your glass with wine and hoist it in the air - cheers! Ooooh I love this!! This book (or ebook) is very hard to put down. The book is well-written, educational and funny. I love wine and live in wine country in upstate NY, so I knew I'd probably like this book. The author's personal touch makes for compelling reading. I absolutely recommend this book for ANYONE who enjoys wine. There is something for every one in this book. Enjoy this book while sipping your favorite grape treat! I am glad that I got a chance read this book.
