trendy pictures can't save this book., 10 April 2006
Thirsty Work is almost a decent book but there are too many niggles that stopped me enjoying it, or suggesting that others read it. Much of the book is wasted with romantic, arty colour photos and with really annoying words like "brilliant" and "juice", whereas more room could have been taken up with in-depth wine info. Reading the book gives you the feeling that Thirsty Work is just a vehicle to create a persona around Matt Skinner rather than write a genuine book. I reckon this book would suit the under 20's thinking about going to catering college and needing a very simple intro to wine.
