I bought this book for a friend and upon receiving it had to turn around and purchase one for myself. This is a fun book not only for drink recipes but also to read to casually read for the tips and ideas!

I bought this book on a whim as I walked into my local Barnes and Noble. I'm SO happy I did! I found recipes for drinks I like and most I've never tried. It's really wonderful to have these recipes so my husband and I can experiment with different drinks and not drink the same boring drinks all the time. I also love that this book has a soft vinyl cover. I am a bit clumsy and I'm happy to know that if something gets spilled on the cover of this book, I'll be able to wipe it and it won't ruin the book. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the old fashioned drinks and someone who is a fan of trying some new drink recipes!

I recently bought this book for one of my friends (for his birthday)who is currently attending college. He loved the book and since that he has been using it quite often. The PBG tell you everything you need to know about bartending, and also gives hundreds of different ideas for all kinds of drinks. I give this book 'two thumbs up' and will probably buy it agian for someone in the future.

I thought that I would take a chance on the playboy guide...the title was catchy and the book was pretty cheap compared to the other books, and I figured that I had nothing to lose. However, I know no why it was so cheap. It lacks sufficient content, I would recommend that you buy the $17 Bartending for Dummies guide (pay the extra seven books) and truly get your money's worth.

This little black book is absolutely fantastic! It has tons of drink recipes, from the classics to the current crop, and tons of detail about today's many beers and wines as well. Best of all, the book is lovingly put together--Thomas Mario never sounded so good and LeRoy Neiman's Femlins are definitely the hardest-working illustrations in the booze biz! Can't recommend this one highly enough...

This is a totally awesome guide to drinking and drink-making! It has excellent information on the history of alcohol as well as all the modern developments, like widespread microbrewed beers; it includes tons of updated drink recipes; and it still has the Playboy swagger of yesteryear. The design is great--the LeRoy Neiman illustrations really stand out. I can't recommend this terrific little book enough. Fantastic!
