As with most of Jancis Robinson's previous writing this book is great fun to read. I would even recommend it as a read to someone who didn't like wine. For those who do like their wine it is a bible on how to approach drinking wine with the aim of improving and increasing their enjoyment. It is gently paced with good descriptions of all the wine-tasting terms and is packed with amusing little anecdotes. Before actually using the it as a 'work book'I would recommend reading it through from start to finish so as to become familiar with the books lay-out and style - it pays dividends.
