The idiot whose name appears on this book, "Brian Cook" has even gone so far as to substitute his name in Mr. Bravery's eponymously appellated recipes. What kind of worthless human being would stoop to that level? He's trying to hide his theft and cover his tracks but the rest of the book is copied word for word. He even passes off the anecdotes and history as if they were his own. I think that blatantly stealing another author's work for personal gain makes Brian Cook a scumbag and an idiot. It is apparent that there was almost no effort put forth to improve or personalize the writing, so it comes off as a garbled mishmash of English sensibility and the moron plagiarist's voice where they've tried to modernize or Americanize some of the text. Not only did he fail to improve the work, it actually makes it harder to read. Really classy, you creep.
In regards the contents of the book itself, it was likely state of the art for home winemaking back in the time it was written. Many of the recipes are unique to this book, at least I have been unable to find their equivalents in my collection of books on making wine.
In reading this edition it is very evident that the "author" of this version didn't actually even bother to make or test any of the recipes contained; as other reviewers have noted, many of the practices put forth as ideal or routine in this book will result in hooch at best.Read more ›
However, I was confused by the absence of any effective glossary or any planned sequence of presenting and classifying the different recipes.
