5.0 out of 5 stars Must have
Anyone with an interest in and a desire for traditional cider should have this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Coffee table book for absolute beginner cider makers
As an amateur apple grower and cider maker of 15 years I was hoping for a comprehensive book on all things cider making. This book covers most of the required subjects but doesn't really give the depth of information for which I had hoped.

2.0 out of 5 stars Coffee table book for absolute beginner cider makers, 5 July 2014
This review is from: Cider Manual: The Practical Guide to Growing Apples and Making Cider (Haynes Manuals) (Hardcover)
As an amateur apple grower and cider maker of 15 years I was hoping for a comprehensive book on all things cider making. This book covers most of the required subjects but doesn't really give the depth of information for which I had hoped. There are many 1 and 2 page glossy photographs filling the book - in my opinion, always a bad sign. Although apple growing is discussed, there is no mention of pollination groups - a vital subject.

Proofreader please note - page 31: 5% + 75% + 50% +5% = 135% not 100%; page 41: "biennial" not "biannual". An index would have been nice.
