For the total novice,

This review is from: Thirsty Work (Mitchell Beazley Drink) (Hardcover)
I attended a wine tasting that coincided with this book by Matt in a London bookshop. He even wore a similar shirt to the one on the cover of the book but he assured me that it was not the same one. He told us his life story about how he got into wine etc. I'm pretty sure he is trying to be as passionate about wine as Jamie Oliver is about food, they even work together. Somehow I wasn't that convinced...
If you like the Jamie style cookbooks then this is exactly like that. This book is good for the complete novice who has no idea about wine, it even has the pronouciations phonetically. But beyond that this book really doesn't offer much more.
