A great introduction to the immense world of beer, circa the late 1980s. I can't decided if I gained more knowledge from this coffeetable volume or more appreciation for what's in my glass. I'd be happy to re-read many portions of this TNWGB.

The one book that will make you smart about beer and give you good ideas as to what to try next.

First read this when I was getting into beer from the library. I was glad very recently (August '09) to treat myself to a copy of this book from Powell's. I'm sure many of the beers and places have drastically changed in the 20 years since this book was published, but still the variety of beer and the obvious enjoyment Michael Jackson took in them is evident.

Somewhat out of date now I'm afraid, and not his best. This is more of a beer tour book, but not in the convenient "Moon Handbook" style. A large format coffee-table book does not fit well into a backpack.
