My husband and I are very fond of this book. The simple drawings of every kind of glass for every kind of cocktail are fabulous. The author is very adept at the history, significance, and fun of cocktail making and drinking. I highly recommend this book for a gift - I gave it as a Father's Day gift. The size of the book, the paper, the font size -- all of it are simply grand. Bored of beer and wine? Buy this gem of a book!
