I was first introduced to this book as a college student when I took a course on wine; this was our textbook. Very easy to read and digest and the author uses wit and speaks plainly. I later used this book to teach a wine education class for a group of servers at a restaurant and then also used it to study for my entry level sommelier exam. I definitely recommend this book to get a great base knowledge of the wine world. I am very excited to crack open this book to see the new features and updated information as my original copy is about 10 years old.
