Not bad, but...

Though a lot of information is packed into this short, 2h40m book, the content is read at a speed that makes retention almost impossible. There also doesn't seem to be much of a logical sequence of information: many repetitions, topics circle back around three or four times while certain explanations that are basic for understanding are skimmed over at warp speed. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're willing to listen to it with a pen and paper in hand, and stopping and replaying to catch this information on the fly...

Appropriate for beginning wine drinkers

This is a book most useful for beginning wine drinkers. I was very disappointed that there were so many mispronounced words.

Good Tipples

Any additional comments?

This book was short and sweet, it served as an interesting listen.<br/><br/>The narrator was charismatic and thought provoking.<br/><br/>Definitely something anyone with an interest in wine should give a go.

grinding way to learn

this was my third wine book and I quit after 15 mins. the narrator is quite fast and you will pick up incorrect pronunciation of grape varieties. I also found it was a little contradictory to the other two I read. go for one of the others I'd say
