Default New Book out

I saw a new book yesterday at Borders.

Basic Homebrewing: All the Skills and Tools You Need to Get Started (Paperback)
by Jim Parker, Stacy Tibbetts (Editor)

Very colorful. A lot of pictures. However the book is VERY scant. We are talking about 70 pages and I think whoever figured the price of the book was on some seriously messed up homebrew. It is selling at Borders for $19.95! I mean... this book is INFORMATION SCANT! Barely gives you enough to realy get basic skills down and I think I got a lot more from the pictures then what was written.

Hmm.... so in other words this book is so bad that it would be more interesting to talk about Dennys then the book itslelf. My thoughts exactly.

I keep hoping that a GOOD new book will come out on home brewing but other than re-makes of Charlie's books there is nothing. Maybe it's all been written?

Rich, I kind of suspect that unless some new technology comes along, it's all been written. In fact, I think very little has changed in homebrew since Dave Line's books in the late 70s or early 80s. Little things, and lots of info is more widely available, but there is no "new info" in the new books. Just a reworking of products, techniques etc. And ole Charlie P put sooo much life into his books, that everything else just falls flat.
