2.0 out of 5 stars wasted opportunity, 1 Feb 2006
This review is from: Thirsty Work (Mitchell Beazley Drink) (Hardcover)
This book is OK but could have been much better. Its relaxed style make it undaunting, which is a good way to approach wine, but there are too many photos and not enough humour. This book needed to be funny. The book tries a bit too hard to fit into the Jamie oliver bracket of 'hip', however this IS a coffee table book in my opinion and not an attempt to explain wine properly. I am sure Matt Skinner will develop his talents, but this book falls short of being worth reading or re-reading.
