A very easy-to-read walk through six important drinks - wine, beer, spirits, coffee, tea and soda. You get a bit of the history and culture of each, delivered in an engaging and well-paced narrative. There are tons of notes and sources cited, but they're all at the end, so they don't break the flow of your reading (which is my preference in a book like this, intended for a lay audience). Hopefully this will be a good basis for discussion with my book club later this week.
