Format: Paperback
Ted Bruning's book is quite simply the most comprehensive book that has been written on cider history - in particular English Cider History. It traces it from its origins through the various phases of development to and examination of cider as it is today. As a narrative history it reads extremely well and holds interest throughout. I first read it in draft before the 20th century had been fully covered and when I read the finished edition I was delighted with what I found. I slightly take issue with Teds conclusion that there are no defining good ciders today - I think they have been arriving from our new smaller cider makers over the past decade, This book provides the perfect companion to my own In Search of Cider which covers todays cider makers in South West England. Do not delay, buy and read Ted's book today and your will have a much greater understanding of the ciders you see around you. Alan Stone

Product was a gift but it seemed quite boring. Thought there would be more pictures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 2 Mar. 2014
By Alan Yelvington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a cider maker, so I'm sort of a captured audience.

I like the book, and the stories are good. My only regret is that it's written in an almost academic voice, but it's anecdotal in presentation since no citations are provided. Basically, you feel smarter, but you can't prove it. (Better have another cider) That said, enjoy the read.
5.0 out of 5 stars "Golden Fire " A Delightful Read of Historical Importance about Cider 30 Sept. 2012
By C.LeClair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ted Bruning's work is a must read for anyone who has interest in Cider.
This book wraps history and cider culture together with a writing style
that not only educates but brings the passion of a fine drink out from
the earliest periods of history to what we think of it as a beverage of
choice today. This book has a rightful place in ones library. I hope you
enjoy it as much as I have!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book. An in depth review of the history ... 25 Nov. 2014
By DR TREVOR FITZJOHN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An excellent book. An in depth review of the history of cider from pre history through to its peak in last 1600s and recent resurgence. If you only buy one book on cider, this is the one. Very readable but learned.
