A snobbery-free guide to quickly finding which North American wines are worth your money. While wine snobs are swirling and sniffing expensive wines that are tediously hard to find, the rest of us are just drinking wine. Popular wine. Big-brand wine. Big brands can spell terrific value, but you need to know which bottles to buy. That's where Good Better Best Wines, 2e comes in. It's small enough to pop in your pocket and take with you to the store. And it's user-friendly enough to flip through on the fly. In this completely updated edition, you get the top three wines ranked for each grape variety in four different price categories--under $4, $10, $15, and $20. And every bottle listed comes with a color photograph for quick and easy identification, so you can buy and run before getting stuck in a conversation with someone eager to share their vast wine knowledge with you! Of course, you'll also get other important details, such as what ingredients created each wine, flavor and smell profiles, and alcohol content by volume--but in Carolyn's relaxed, friendly tone. "Carolyn Evans Hammond has crafted the second edition of her wine book, Good, Better, Best Wines, which should be essential reading for those who care about the fermented grape--and, more importantly, those who care about getting the best value for the buck. Apart from her intelligent analysis of wine in layman's terms, Carolyn offers tips and quirky side trips into the weird and wonderful world of wine." -- Tony Aspler, award-winning wine columnist "This is an essential book for anyone seeking great value on the wine shelf. If you're looking to discover new wines, along with some handy tips and advice, this is an essential guide. Carolyn's picks are right on the money (pun intended), and she makes shopping for wine easy and fun." -- Dick Snyder, wine writer for Drink Toronto "Carolyn Hammond has written a beautifully concise and easy to understand review of the 120 top wines sold in the United States. Without being verbose, her descriptions are a pleasure to read, with honest charm yet straight to the point and not hidden behind florid and pretentious language. Her book is well organized by grape variety into three comparative price points up to $15 per bottle and should now be considered a must when buying the big-name and popular brands that sell the most. An indispensable wine bible!" -- Fred Lamprecht, sommelier and president Lamprecht International

This book is for all those seeking to acquire a deep and systematic appreciation and understanding of wine, whether for exams, work, or pleasure. It outlines a simple yet robust framework for analyzing wine as objectively as possible, and provides all the background knowledge that you need to interpret your findings, covering everything from grape varieties and vineyard management to winemaking techniques and the world's most important wine styles. It seeks throughout to examine in what ways a particular wine is unique and different from other, similar wines. For example, why and in what ways is Pauillac, in Bordeaux, different from Pomerol, also in Bordeaux? Why and in what ways is Mosel Riesling different from Riesling from the Rheingau, or the Nahe, or Alsace, Austria, or Australia? This book is dedicated to all wine lovers, and should prove particularly useful to amateur and competitive blind tasters, students on higher-level wine courses, sommeliers, and anyone else who buys, sells, or recommends wine.

This novel tells the story of the scribes who produced the book of Genesis. It is narrated by Keziah, the wife of Jonathan, one of the scribes. They collected the stories and put them together according to a detailed plan. These same scribes worked in the Jerusalem Academy during the time of the Davidic monarchy about 1000 BCE. The scribes understood their work to be a Royal Epic, and it helped bring Judah and Israel together and legitimize the throne of David. This epic was performed at the dedication of David's palace, and it is interesting to note the interplay between the scribes' text and the performance of the minstrels.

Can drinking red wine save your life? Scientific breakthroughs within the past several years suggest that it may not be an unreasonable question. Red wine's miracle molecule, resveratrol, has been proven to extend life dramatically in experimental animals. But resveratrol is only one of a family of compounds called polyphenols that may hold the key to preventing Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and everything from cancer to the common cold. With new discoveries come new controversies though; Age Gets Better with Wine explores the question of whether the benefits of healthy drinking can be put into a pill, and delves into the science behind the secret to living longer and living better with wine.

Endorsements: "A novel is a novel way of entering into the world of biblical textual criticism! Fisher's novel about the writing of the Job poem and how its message was largely silenced by locating it within the more ancient story is a likely tale that, in any case, brings to life the world of scholars at David's court. It also shows that modern skepticism is not so modern after all!" --John Cobb, Emeritus Professor, Claremont School of Theology About the Contributor(s): Loren R.
