This is nothing but a big waste of time. He only got one star because I could not leave zero... as it isn't an option. Gary specializes in self promotion... nothing more. This book is something to be missed... don't waste your time.
I love this book. It has so much fun and character inside of it. I read the tasting notes and I can actually hear Gary saying what is written. I have bought one for all of my friends who love wine to expand their palate as well....GREAT JOB GARY..hopefully this will be something you update often. I would buy the next one already
This book truly does 'Inspire, Delight and Bring Thunder to your World.' When I did a quick flip of the pages (similar to the swirling of the wine) and then took my first look (sticking your nose in the wine) I was delighted. I got a taste of an amazing book that inspired the mind (similar to a wine inspiring you taste buds). From start to finish this book is amazing and a must read. Start from number 101 and read it through, number one will surprise you, it shocked me :) I was so inspired I went and tried to find a handful of these wines. Additionally talked to customers and employees at the wine story and told them about the book and have a few of them going to check it out as well. Gary Vaynerchuk is an amazing author, wine expert and overall amazing person. Two thumbs up. So good I now have three copies ! One to keep, one to give away and a backup.
