The original book is great, but there are only 3 chapters available in the audio version.
It starts off promising, but there is not nearly enough information on varietals. Also, you'd think they would choose a narrator with at least very basic french knowledge, his pronunciations are not just incorrect, they're EMBARRASSING...and if someone is learning these words for the first time, they will embarrass themselves by learning from this guy.
i believe this book could have been written ia a weekend. i have read other books ''for dummies' but not this bad.spend more money and buy from vines to wines or the wine bible
i would have to see the table of contents
it flowed well. good pronunciation and diction
re-write the whole book
It's just far too short and doesn't include nearly enough information about wine. Though I will say that the narrator did a great job and the book wasn't as boring as one would suspect.
Loved the section on how to look like a pro at the restaurant when asking for and assessing the wine. But I wanted to know things like how do I store wine at home when you don't have a cellar, how long can I keep wine after I open it. Do I need to keep it on its side of it didn't have a cork? I guess I'll wait for the 5th edition.
Did not have enough of the information anyone looking to further their knowledge needs. Really just talks about buying practices and how to look like you know how to smell and taste wine.
I found this book helpful and a very pleasant listen as well. Nice amount of info without coming across as snobby.
