    WIne connoisseur? Then this isn't for you. But if you like wine and would like to learn a little more about it, this is a great book. It's by Matt Skinner, sommelier to Jamie Oliver's (the guy on TV) restaurant. What's best about this book is its absolute lack of airs or pretentiousness. It starts out assuming you know nothing - and that's ok! It is a pretty thorough book if you want to learn about wine, but it does skimp a bit on the details. You will not find an exhaustive list here, or a large comparison of regions and varieties. But you will find everything you need to begin your alcoholic adventure. It has the details on grape to wine, vinter to market, and market to you (and how to choose!) You'll find yourself better educated and know where you stand with wine. Plus it's only $5 :)

    Wine is art and business and fun all in one.
