What People are Saying About This

Eric Asimov

"[E]ncyclopedic in scope . . . In putting together the 'Oxford Companion' now, Mr. Oliver has captured the blossoming of a global beer culture at a thriving moment. . . . [A] definitive resource not just for beer enthusiasts but for amateur brewers, professional brewers and the thousands of restaurants that serve great beers but are staffed by people who may know little about them. . . . The 'Oxford Companion' is simply a wonderful resource for what, even when it's complex, unusual, unfamiliar or strikingly different, is still just beer, regardless of how it is dressed up." ? Eric Asimov, for The New York Times

The book is great, everything you ever wanted to know about beer. The Nook format is kind of wierd and it logs it as just one page. Reads fine and the index and links work, you just dont know where you are.

Please fix this books format, it says there is only 1 page and there is over 800. Impossible to use as a reference in this state. Should not have to months for this to get fixed when I paid over 38 dollars for it.

The low rankings are confusing - the content of this book is excellent and as a hard copy it's easy to navigate and read about beer styles & cross references. The low ratings are apparently related to electronic formatting, surely a problem, but those reviews should be segregated.

The format is all wrong. There is only "page 1" for all pages. Please fix this and update us who've purchased this ebook!

I have only had this a short time, and I may never actually read all 960 pages, but my dips into it so far have been a lot of fun. This is a very well written, occasionally technical, look at beers, breweries, brewers, and everything related to the same. It is not an encyclopedia, however. Despite its length, its coverage is selective--Paulaner yes, Shiner Bock no.

This is literally useless, since it's formatted incorrectly. On Nook, the entire book is one page. This means that terms are unsearchable, since, when you try to jump to a term, it deposits you on page 1, the only page. You can't even randomly jump ahead to try to find a term, since all pages are page one. I ended up buying a hard copy and a Kindle.
