To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It tells you the basics and how to do it correctly. Sometimes it feels like the author is stretching the topic a bit though the general style of writing is ‘conversational’ which is okay. A lot of people rave about this book and I have to say I was initially a bit nonplussed; just about every cocktail book has a few chapters on technique (which in my opinion nine times out of ten is padding) but revisiting this book a few times has made me appreciate it more.
Excellent book for new or experienced bartenders! Don't expect in-depth molecular recipes, but it's simple, to the point, non-patronising and full of practical advice. A must have for any cocktail enthusiast's collection.
