For those people who know next to nothing about wine I can't recommend this book enough.
Australia produces a more wine now than beer and the range is huge. Much cheaper and far nicer than the main brands that make it over here to Tesco's. Allen sets out to explain the various grape varieties and how wine is produced for those people who are just beginning their first forays beyond House red and white.
It inspires you go out and risk £5-10 on a wine (say if you are a student) knowing that even if you aren't a wine buff you are likely to have more enjoyment of it than the experts simply because its a brave new world for you.
I would give it a 5 but due to its focus on Australian wine it won't give you the opportunity to leap into a van and drive out to the vineyards described.
Nevertheless the basis of wine is universal and will explain everything to a novice in friendly none patronising terms. You'll never go back to Blue Nun (if you ever did) again.

A whistle stop tour of all you need to know about wine. This makes excellent, cover to cover reading, anyone who ever had a glass of wine should own this book. Unusual and fascinating photography complements the unique style of the author. Buy it for everyone!

Max Allen has written a superb book, completely removed all pretense and has made simple wine knowledge available to all. Great one for a reference.
