Waste of time. Not about the title.

They need to change the title to stories about Sommeliers. This book is not about how to become a Sommelier.
The author spends more time telling stories and trying to sound eloquent and artistic than talking about content.
I think she likes hearing herself or flattering herself rather than giving content for readers, on how to become a Sommelier.
This was a waste of time, and no help if you truly want to become a Sommelier.
