Alot of material in 200 pages.
Self-assessment Questions are helpfull, multi demensional however sometimes he asks very trivial questions with the answer difficult to find in the text.
You will want to use the book over and over, like a good cook book, to increase your understanding and passion for wine.
Highly recomend to anyone wishing to futher their knowledage in the wine world
For the home enthusiast or even someone just curious about broadening their horizons into a larger world of viticulture and enology, Mr. Julyan's writing broaches the sometimes forboding subject of the old world in an extremely approachable manner, the new world with a sense of excitement and the realms of bartending with both sensetivity toward tradition and the modern mixologist.
For the wine-savvy diner, this book provides valuable insight into the realm of "what should be going on" in the parts of the restaurant world you don't get to see. As a 20 year restaurant veteran, I also greatly appreciated Mr. Julyan's explainations of the difference between the should be's of service versus the nescessary practicality of providing service within the specific constraints of each establishment's environment and ability.
Both an exceptional value and a more approachable read than the sometimes overtly technical wine tomes available, I strongly recommend this to anyone looking to increase the caliber of thier sales and service training in their hospitality career or to soak in a little more than just grape-juice!
Educators and Sommeliers: this book is one-stop-shopping for all of those interested in the sales and service of wine, and is on the required reading list for the Master Sommelier program (now we can stop circulating that eight-year-old photocopied version from Hawaii!)
