I was looking forward to this book as I often have to explain wine to people for my job and thought that the latest Skinner offering might be a good help. To be honest it isn't really. Its a pretty good attempt to explain wine and answer difficult questions, but in general it feels a bit lightweight and low on the details that would be really useful. Seems to be a lot of 'posed' photos for a wine guide too! Perhaps it was rushed out for Christmas?
