    Legendary beer expert Charlie Bamforth presents the most compelling social history of beer ever written: where it's come from, and where its headed. From centuries-old cultural values to radical new approaches, craft brewing to globalization, it's an amazing story. Bamforth tells it all with humor, behind-the-scenes insight, and sheer joy!

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is more of an bitter ramp than a history of beer or description of the brewing process or a support for the pub culture. Save your money and buy another book.


    What was most disappointing about Charles W. Bamforth’s story?

    His lack of ability to develop a theme and point and promote in a positive way the brewing process and the rich history of the development of beer. The author seems bitter.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Good narration

    Story

    In these 24 lectures, probe the field of "human development"; the science that studies how we learn and develop psychologically, from birth to the end of life. This very young science not only enables us to understand children and help them develop optimally, but also gives us profound insights into who we are as adults. Professor Watson introduces you to the six theories that have had perhaps the greatest influence on this field

    A says: "A basic first year course in human development"
    "bad summaries"

    Story
    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Malcolm W. Watson?

    No, Dr. Watson generalizes and paints with broad strokes and his historical overviews of the history of view of children and philosophy is totally under developed, to the extent that they are close to being inaccurate.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    a book on neuroscience


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It has some moments and if the listener just skip a few of early lectures they can get so some good material.
