1.0 out of 5 stars Dire.
Series of essays not really connected.

Confused grapes with vineyards. For example referenced as a 'great wine' processco. No real comment on which vineyard etc. In other places, goes to the detail of the vineyard 'Santa Rita in Chile'. But there range is massive. Little reference to vintage. Very poor. Nice selection of English wines. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and clear to use, 16 Feb 2013

Ideal for an amateur wine buff or a novice. The cover is meant to look like a wine bottle label and comes off easy but apart from that it made a good present.

I bought this as a gift for a wine lover. It was excellent (although perhaps needs an revised edition to include some wines that were not listed.) Beautiful book and well appreciated.

This review is from: Life's Too Short to Drink Bad Wine (Hardcover)
What a delightful book. The author cannot be accused of being a wine snob for he has such great love for lesser known wines such as Chateau D'Angludet and Camel Valley, which, is probably not known outside of Britain - it is a British sparking wine whose claim to fame was coming in second to Bollinger in a blind tasting. The cartoons and witticism are joy enough to merit getting this book. But it is indeed a well-written - concise and yet full of information.
