REVIEWED BY: Chris Carlsson, SpiritsReview.com
This book is billing itself as a reference for people new to the industry. I suggest only people with a thorough understanding of the topics listed in this book read it for the humor value. There are any number of mistatements, false information or ignorance throughout the book. Absolutely worthless – a waste of money except for humor at the author’s expense. Contains only 101 recipes, most of which are undrinkable. Information in dated, inaccurate or useless- comments about almost every spirit is either wrong or too vague to be of any use. Avoid!
