Top Customer Reviews
One really nice thing he offers in the book is lists of suggested wines - by type, and a great list of 50 wines that should be on your bucket list. This is particularly nice to have if you get the Kindle version - just call it up next time you're at the wine store. The book also has one of the most detailed Indexes I've ever seen - great for referencing. I'm not a wine savant, so I have no clue whether his recommendations are good, but given his bio in the back of the book, it appears he has the chops to make such bold assertions.
Even if I weren't interested in wine, I think I'd like reading this book because of the author's brash yet self-deprecating attitude, combined with his wicked vocabulary. I found myself smiling throughout the book as he whipped out words, phrases, and puns that I haven't come across in years. I'm guessing that's an occupational hazard for wine guys.
Overall, a fun read with great information and it'll pay for itself with the next couple of bottles I buy!
