Book Reviews

Book Review banner

Reading is the easiest and cheapest way to educate yourself on any topic… unfortunately, there is just as much bad reading material out there as there is good. Maybe even more, actually. With Cocktail and Liquor books especially, there is a great deal of misinformation, myths, and just plain bad material out there. In these book reviews, I’ve taken the time to talk about the quality (and quantity) of material these books hold, so that you don’t have to worry about buying the wrong one for your shelf. Or… at least know which order you want to read them in.
