Much more than just a book about booze. The history of the universe, life on earth and, primarily,humanity and our relationship with alcohol.
A meaty academic volume, it's not a tube read.
I haven't purchased for my Kindle due to the valuable colour images.
I have given this book as a present and I rarely bother to write reviews.
I think the importance of this work should reach a wider audience.
