    Story

    Actor and wine expert Julian Curry has devised a unique audiobook guide to wine. The whole subject is introduced and explained – how wine is made, the different grapes, the different blends, vintages, wine-growing areas and types. In an entertaining and informal style, he also teaches how to taste wine, and how to choose and store it.

    Overall

    This audiobook exceeded my expectations. The author provides a comprehensive overview of wine in a lively and entertaining manner. I enjoy wine but had always been intimidated by the many winemakers and varieties. I know have a much better understanding of how wine is classified and what to look for in selecting wine. I'll listen to this book again and again.

    A great addition - if you are reading this, author - is to provide maps of major wine regions that can be downloaded to accompany the audio.

  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    Story

    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    This book is fast-paced, well-written, and the author does a nice job with the reading. It packs great insight into the world in an interesting story.
