The Persistent Observer's Guide to Wine: How to Enjoy the Best and Skip the Rest

J.P. Bary. Neon Press, $19.95 paper (208p) ISBN 978-0-9858400-4-4
In this helpful guidebook, wine-connoisseur Bary explains some of the "serious mistakes that millions of people make every day"—mistakes, he admits, he has made himself—when it comes to selecting and enjoying wine. Discussing everything from the proper storage of wine and wine tasting to grade inflation, Bary demonstrates an extensive knowledge of his subject matter and offers plenty of tips for those who don't know a pinot grigio from a malbec. The author's writing is straightforward and clear—though at times a bit dry. However, this useful book is informative and will certainly help neophytes looking to learn more about the wonderful world of wine.
