Not a lot of use
on 19 August 2008
Firstly - I think it amazing that Mr Stevenson should review his own book, not spell out the fact that he is the author, and give the book five stars.
Secondly, it is pretty shoddy to suggest that Amazon customers should thumb through copies in bookshops, when they intend to buy the book from Amazon.
Thirdly, it is quite true that hardly any of the wines can be found in the UK. What is wrong with pointing this out?
Fourthly, I am not at all sure that chasing after 'cutting edge' wine is altogether a good thing (unless, as Mr Stevenson and some of the commentators rather sneeringly suggest, money is no object). Is wine an appropriate medium for high fashion?
In all, I find this book rather less impressive than the author does.
