Gelb (Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci) opens our eyes to the remarkable power of wine to unleash creative potential, awaken our genius, and forge bonds with friends and co-workers. Here’s a wine appreciation audiobook that invites you to experience wine with your “whole brain”—an approach that is unequivocally unique:

  • Part 2 explores how wine can serve as a catalyst for creativity and "right brain" thought, highlighting the greatest wine-related art, music, and architecture of all time.
  • Part 3 guides you through a delightful step-by-step process of bringing family, friends, or colleagues together for "Inspired Thinking" wine parties.

All in all, Wine Drinking for Inspired Thinking will not only improve your enjoyment of wine, but will also enhance the enjoyment of your life.

    "Lots of words..."

    It's interesting that Mr. Gelb, as knowledgeable as he may be, has lots to say about a topic that is so incredibly subjective. His preface and introduction can be completely removed. As he goes on and on about himself and his reason for blending creativity with wine drinking/tasting, it become incredibly tiring and drawn out. Perhaps it has something to do with having just finished listening to Robin Stark's "Wine Appreciation Understanding, Ordering & Enjoying." She on the opposite end of teaching Appreciation, has a wonderful and succinct manner in presentation. Mr. Gelb can learn lots from her. I think his book can be better if edited for an over abundance of words. Reading (or in this case the audio version) a book about wine needs to be to the point and encourage and teach what it's like to drink or taste wine. I want to drink/taste wine and learn what it's like to have experienced that very thing. Ask others you trust about wine. Ask Sommeliers at restaurants about recommendations. Ask what others who appreciate wine what they taste. Train your pallet to understand and recognize what's going on in your mouth. Tjis is why Robin Stark's book is much better. She highlights what is most important. Mr. Gelb is better to keep his words to his intimate moments with his relations that appreciate hanging out with him. His information is great. His waxing on and on is annoying.
