This book is a fine reference text but it isn't particularly interesting and doesn't contain anything unusual that you couldn't just search up online if you needed to check a recipe. Not really worth owning, there are much better cocktail books out there for your collection.
This is the everything you ever wanted to know about mixing drinks. I used this in the Winthrop Palace Restaurant and bar, while I owned the business. It was the prime useful text on the subject and made me a fair amount of money.
