TITLE: Whiskey The Definitive World Guide
AUTHOR: Michael Jackson (among others)
PUBLISHER: DK Publishing 288 Pages
TYPE: Reference
COST:

Michael Jacksons books seem to be of two basic types;the handy reference size or the coffee table sized folio or tome.This is one of the later. A large book even by his standards, it will probably be considered the definitive work on Whisky for years to come and take it's place with Gary and Mardee Regans Work "The Book of Bourbon" as the standard reposistory of all knowledge and wisdom on the subject at least for the masses if not the cognescenti of whisky for years to come.Generously illustrated and well written it is a cornerstone addition to a whiskey book collection. That being said,while a great attempt to cover the field of whisky and full of very useful and entertaining information, it lacks the details of his and others more specialized books on the subject that some may wish to ferret out.

 

Overall 8 Value 7
