It just doesn't deliver -- it covers these topics with disappointing brevity and makes a fair amount of reference and repetition with The Joy of Homebrewing.
Its not a bad book by any means and I did enjoy reading some of the history it has very well covered and will try some of the recipes, but if you are looking for advanced technical knowledge -- this just doesn't provide practical information.
Regarding content; this is great for the aspiring brewer. His book Joys of Homebrewing is in it's fourth edition and is outstanding for beginners and intermediate brewers. Once you have 10+ extract batches under your belt, you're likely ready to jump toward kegg'n or all-grain. That's where this book fits in great.
It clearly, and plainly, explains the processes and chemistry behind a good home brew. It also points out numerous practical solutions which make the whole process much easier.
Buy this book and read it cover to cover, especially if you're new to home brew.
