    Great guide

    Great book for people that want to throw parties and mix drinks on their own. Book lays flat so it's easy to read while mixing. Helpful and has all of my favorite drinks which is definitely a plus. :)

    GOOD BOOK FOR THE BEGINNER, BUT

    THE BOOK FOR THE MONEY DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH OF THE LATEST 'CHIC' DRINKS COVERED. IT DOES NOT HAVE KNOWLEDGEABLE SECTION ON WINES. THE BARTENDER'S BLACK BOOK IS A BETTER BUY WITH 2600 DRINKS AND A LOT OF WINE INFO. THIS IS STICTLY A BEGINNERS BOOK. THE OLD MR BOSTON GUIDE IS BETTER FOR THE STANDARDS. TAKE IT FROM SOMEBODY WHO HAS BEEN IN THE LIQUOR BUSINESS FOR 30 YEARS
