"Fortunately for the aspiring modern gent, we found this great book that fills in the blanks on your gentleman card. From spirits and wine and tools for your home bar to the more epicurean things like steak, oysters and what makes a proper charcuterie, think of this as a textbook for a life lived well . . . This is a comprehensive culture upgrade every man can benefit from." --Spy.com "This book is packed full of important beverage info that will help you wow your friends at the next social gathering." --CraftBeerReview "Master the basics first, with help from veteran drinks writer John McCarthy, who crafts short, digestible essays on everything from building your home bar to mastering the classic cocktails (along with a few non-boozy but certainly useful tidbits on oysters, hot sauces, cigars, watches and more)." --InsideHook
