drink to your good health!, 9 Oct. 2007
I knew it! Finally someone, and not just someone, but THREE medical doctors confirming what I always suspected - that the champagne that makes you feel so good can't be all bad for you! On the contrary, Doctor Tran Ky goes into the science, the art and the illustrious history of champagne to demonstrate why this beverage is so highly prized, and also why a glass of lovely bubbly a day complies with the philosophy of 'savoir vivre'. This translation reads beautifully, is erudite, witty and punctuated by lots of quotes in praise of champagne and all its glory, including a fair bit of one-liner wisdom from Winston Churchill who loved a bubbly glass now and then and again. It is also beautifully illustrated and full of charm - definintely on the christmas stocking list for all of those difficult to buy for uncles, dads and husbands. and of course the ladies because champers is most definitelywritten in the feminine and a lady's drink of choice if she knows what's good for her..!
