5.0 out of 5 stars Just what it says on the tin 23 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase
If you're looking for an introduction to various wines and their regions this is not a book for you. It also doesn't tell you what specific wines to buy so for the average consumer it will also be pretty useless. It is more a progress report on most wine regions of the world including pretty obscure ones (take Belgium, Netherlands, Scandanavia and Luxembourg for starters) and how those regions have performed over the previous twelve months. It is not a book for beginners, but rather for wine geeks who are interested in the detail. It's like a company report at an AGM, but it's none the worse for that and great value. If you're an ardent wine enthusiast this is a fantastic book that you'll keep buying every year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out of my league? 5 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
A really difficult book to pass comment on. A sort of mini-Decanter (magazine). Good snippets of information but too little in any area to make it a reference book.
Is it an annual update for the true experts (not me) who wouldn't find any surprises in Hugh Johnson's wine atlas? (I know a wine importer who swears by it).
Does it get you anywhere that Decanter doesn't?

A good 'bedside' book though, if you want a 5 minute read. It's full of information by expert writers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit thin with not much body 4 Feb 2009
Something and nothing as a book, slightly disjointed which is probably due to the multiple contributors. Snippets of information rather than help as a reference book.
