3.0 out of 5 stars Very lacking in the most important part - light, 4 Feb 2010
Overall the book is well written and the examples are all excellent. What lets the book down though is the lighting section. There is no explanation as to what to look for or how to light a scene. No set up shots and no explanation beyond describing the types of studio lights and pages and pages of the same scene with slightly different setups.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff but very dated, 13 May 2005
I greatly enjoyed this book, but found that the author dwelled a bit too much on facts about where and how much each grape variety is grown, and much of the data is from a 1979 census which doesn't seem too relevant now. Also, the information on Spain is very out of date as it is only in the last 15 years or so that Spain has got its wine act together. Apart from that, very recommended as no other book I have seen covers this subject so extensively and so well.
