    "Although this is a solution, and seems to be a pretty good one, I wish that multiple books were listed. I would want more than one option, even though this book seems promising."

    "I have a hard time relating to people who go on and on about the full bodied fruitiness of an oaky glass of tannin or whatever. Not my thing. But I can really get down with my ancestors. So reading about the history of wine and how it came to be what it is today gives me something to discuss at dinner when people start gushing about whatever liquid is being poured around the table. Reading this book makes life with my sommelier husband much easier to bear. I'm sure he appreciates it as well since before I read it I compared every wine I tasted to grape bubblegum."

    "This book is an ok solution to the problem. It does tell the story about wine, but I find it to be a bit boring. I would have preferred something more modern and easy to read. This puts wine in an archaic light and just doesn’t do it for me as far as being a book about wine."

    "This would be a great book if one is looking for information on wines. It has 5 stars on Amazon out of 189 reviews. It's not overly expensive and has a wonderful scope."

    "I was recently given the Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine by a wine lover friend and it has really helped me to increase my knowledge, which has helped for our many wine tastings. With the many pictures and graphs it is very easy to read and so has also been a great coffee table book."

    "I know nothing about wine, but have always wanted to learn. So I was interested in finding a book to gain a little more insight on the subject. I was recommended a book called How to Fake Your Way Through a Wine List. This is the perfect for a wine novice like myself. The book doesn’t get into all the technical terminology and presents a simplistic strategy for selecting a wine whether if at a restaurant or at your local grocery store. My girlfriend has been impressed with my selection in wine ever since I read this book. Highly recommended."

After reading How to Fake Your Way through a Wine List, I now have the confidence to try new wines whenever I am out on the town. It has even help me find new places I would have never gone before!"
