I bought this one for my boyfriend the cocktail hobbyist. The top of the fridge used to be big enough for this one of many hobbies - but now I only have myself to blame. He enjoyed the book immensely, so I picked it up and also found it enjoyable. Lots of fun little anecdotes sprinkled with cocktail recipes. It will rapidly become dated by its pop-culture references, but it made me laugh. And a homemade Singapore sling is a nice thing to come home to.
