      "Most of the book is missing in the audio version"
      You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

      The original book is great, but there are only 3 chapters available in the audio version.

      "Missing info"

      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.

      "too basic"
      What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

      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


      Would you ever listen to anything by Ed McCarthy and Mary Ewing-Mulligan again?

      i would have to see the table of contents


      What didn’t you like about Brett Barry’s performance?

      it flowed well. good pronunciation and diction


      If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wine for Dummies 4th Edition?

      re-write the whole book


      Any additional comments?

      none

      "Not much to it, I learned only a tiny bit."

      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.

      "Too basic and general"

      Way too little information. I get it. For dummies. But covers some topics for seconds. Not worth it. Get printed Wine Folly instead.

      "The Very Basics"

      It was good to listen to but is best for the beginning wine drinker and novice wine server.

      "Title should be changed to Wine for Retards."

      This book is painfully bad!
      Besides very trivial information like "Wine is framed grape juice" the book doesn't offer any knowledge, instead try to be funny, - unsuccessfully.
      Strongly NOT recommended.

      "Guess I needed Wine for the even Dummer"

      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.
