For anyone with an interest in wine I would say buy it. I bought it for someone else but could not stop skimming bits until I had to read it completely. The writer is a journalist and writes in an easy manner with lots of detail and humour. She writes of her experience of the world of sommeliers, of wine sellers and producers but does not cast a critical eye over the grossness she encountered among the super-rich buyers of wine. I liked her encounters with those obsessed with wine but I would have liked her to have given her view on the morality or values of those people buying and selling extraordinarily expensive wine
