More About the Author

I have been writing about wine, other drinks and restaurants since the beginning of the 1990s. In the past decade, my work has included a widely acclaimed cultural history of intoxication, Out Of It (Penguin) and the multi-disciplinary Humanity: An Emotional History (Atlantic, published in the United States as A Natural History of Human Emotions). My work has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese and Korean. I write for the Guardian Books site, as well as a number of specialist drink publications and websites, and I review books for World of Fine Wine magazine.

In 2010, after 16 years of living in Brighton, I headed southwest and am now in beautiful Torbay.

5.0 out of 5 stars very informative 30 Dec 2001
By "denoss" - Published on Amazon.com
This book has got great info inside. Where the drinks were first made to when they were made. It's a great little book for ideas, because it has what flavourings are in each drink so you can kind of make up the drinks for yourself but cheaply.

This is a thin volume, but packed with info. You won't find any one book that will answer all your questions on this topic, but this one makes a fine addition to a library.

I learned more from this book then from all the stuff I have ever seen on TV. For instance I didn't know the difference between a spirit and a liqueur. I do know.
5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING 27 Nov 2007

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thers two things you need to know. First, this is a great guide to spirits and how their made, my personal favorite. Second, the books still in print and you can get it for 10 dollars at borders instead of paying 150 dollars.
