I debated how to review this, but I'll put it this way: The book was exactly what I expected it would be, and I was very glad I listened. The author laid out his history and arguments compellingly and never, in my mind, overstated his claims. Every time I felt the author was telling me that one drink or another had changed the whole world, he gently stepped back and pointed out that this drink wasn't the only factor involved and that it fit into a larger picture. As a result, I never felt disbelieving or pulled out of the history.
The narrator was very competent and pleasant to listen to, clearly understandable at 2x listening speed.
I've already shared quite a lot from this book with my wife, and would recommend it as a casual and enjoyable listen to anyone.
