In Extreme Wine, wine economist and best-selling author Mike Veseth circles the globe searching for the best, worst, cheapest, most expensive, and most over-priced wines. Mike seeks out the most outrageous wine people and places and probes the biggest wine booms and busts. Along the way he applauds celebrity wines, tries to find wine at the movies, and discovers wines that are so scarce that they are almost invisible.
Why go to such extremes? Because, Mike argues, the world of wine is growing and changing, and if you want to find out what's really happening you can't be afraid to step over the edge. Written with verve and appreciation for all things wine, Extreme Wine will surprise and delight listeners.

The narrator mispronounced or simply misread a great deal of the content.
I would have hired new narrator.
Mike Veseth is a fantastic writer. I really enjoyed Wine Wars, and was so excited to see the new title. The content was clearly top notch, but it was totally lost because of the guy they chose to read the text.
To re-record the entire book, the narrator is terrible, he reads, LITERALLY as if he is reading a wine list. Zero inflection, zero appreciation for the content, and absolutely forced me to delete this book before I could make it through 10 minutes
Go straight to his editor and demand a new reading from this book, anyone, and I mean ANYONE could do better.
Ever hear one of those radio commercials read by a local famous athlete? Where they stumble from word to word, jumping on each syllable like it's a life raft? Well this narrator must have played professional sports at one time in their life. The wooden inflection, it's as if someone asked a recovering alcoholic to read a book written about an alcoholic beverage.
Seriously, I could not make it through 5 minutes through a book whose content I find fascinating..seriously, I intern for no cost at wine festivals in Italy, that is how interested in this content. This narrator makes me wish I liked beer more
I'll never know because I can't get past 5 minutes with this narration
I think I might have already pointed out that this content is absolutely brain candy to me, however the dragging of fingernails across a field of broken wine bottles that is this narration has me wondering how this reader was ever selected by the publisher.
