    Epub The Book of Gin Kindle È The Book PDF \ ↠ history books.co book book, The Book ebok, The Book of Gin MOBII've read a good number of books on the history of booze both general and spirit specific and this is a pretty good entry in the field First off if you're expecting this to be a scientific tome about distilling then you need to pass it by and perhaps pay a tad attention to the back cover and dust jacket copy Like most other books in this genre this is basically a whirlwind social history with one particular product at the center of the journey I found it interesting fun and a generally informative read that didn't overstay its welcome or try to cram too much into its focus Yes it is occasionally dry but in general it is pretty engaging Further I also think some of his transitions between historical periods are a bit abrupt and sometimes unnecessarily confusing in terms of where gin stands in terms of public favor and percepti
