I love wine, food, and reading. This book is on the New York Times' best seller list and this has made me lose all faith in that list
That's exactly where Steve's book comes in: it is an amassment of many years of his own tasting experience without any 'snobiness', written in a very clear and instructive writing style and kept impartial by hundreds of references. The result is a captivating and easy to read book on, well, everything you need to know not 'about wine' but about how to appreciate it yourself and not because some expert said so.
So for me this book was about fast tracking my acquisition of knowledge and focussing my taste and choice and I strongly recommend it if you are a bit like me or even as a second opinion, because it's an impartial one. It also got me started on storing and cataloguing my small but growing collection. Oh and at that price... one has really no excuse!
I highly recommend this book as a primer for anyone who wants to learn more about the whole experience involved with wine as well as a good book to have on your book shelf for the more experienced wine drinker. In addition, with various holidays fast approaching in 2014, it would make a unique gift for someone on your gift giving list as well a gift for someone who enjoys a good glass of wine. I have already bought several for my friends who I know will enjoy it as much as I have.
