I've not read it, but this is newly published http://www.amazon.com/For-The-Love-H.../dp/1938469011 I've read one of the author's other books, on Belgian beers, and he's a good writer.

The book pappers mentions is well worth the money. Mix of useful brewing info and tons of random hops knowledge. The variety description section is handy reference. I really enjoy the limited info on how hops and yeast interact. There is so much about it that isn't understood.
The only thing worse than dumping beer is serving beer you should have dumped.
