    My wife bought me this book a few weeks ago. It’s not a ‘how to brew’ book by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a pretty funny memoir and has some really nice ‘beer as life’ stuff that I imagine many of us could relate to. It’s laugh out loud funny at times too.

    It's on my Kindle "Wish List" but before I buy it: does it have a load of photographs in it?

    The reason I ask is that photographs never seem to come over very well on a Kindle so maybe the "hardback" version would be a better buy for me.

    There’s only one page with four pictures so you wouldn’t miss much!

    Currently on its way to my Kindle!

    I should have time to read it whilst SWMBO frolics around Paris next week!

    Many thanks!

    Did you finish reading it @Dutto? Have you started planning your brewery in France?

    Sorry, i should have Posted before!

    "Yes!" I read it and laughed out loud quite a few times and was so taken with the book I persuaded SWMBO to read it as well.

    This act of kindness resulted in one question, one answer and one statement as follows:

    Q "Can the things he mentions actually happen when you're brewing beer?"

    A "Yes, of course they can."

    S "He sounds a right dickhead then!"

    I wondered why she hadn't laughed out loud; but I still think the book was funny and I'll re-read it before I head off back to France in February 2019! (Inshallah!)

    Ooh, sounds like a good recommendation for a stocking filler... It's now on my wish list.
