When I received this book, however, I stayed up all night (on a weeknight) reading it from cover to cover. Instead of having to try to piece together a variety of different articles or puzzle out what questions I need to ask, this volume answered every question I had. It even answered questions which I did not know that I needed or wanted to ask. It is a veritable encyclopedia of cider knowledge.
Although I'd advise getting at least one of the other Cider books Amazon recommends (not sure just which if only one) this book does indeed seem to have "everything", even a skimpy section on growing your own orchard. Some good stuff here!
Oddly organized at times, you'll want to take extensive notes (8 blank pages in back could be used for that), but you'll find hints and details that most if not all of the other books don't have. No pictures or diagrams but plenty of detail…you can probably get along with just this book alone.
I myself don't care for some of the recipes (some of them are for cooking with cider, others use Apple juice, some do neither) and I guess the wine, beer & so on recipes (Lemon wine?) are there just in case you find you enjoy brewing and want to try something else .
It's worth having.
