I recently ordered/received this book as a stocking stuffer for my husband.Pros:- I like the size (roughly 5"x7.5")- I like the format and look of the inside pages- I like the fact that it is spiral-bound so that it will actually stay open to the page that you are looking at or trying to fill-inCons:- The biggest reason I am writing this review, is that the cover, which isn't as nice as I had hoped to start with (it is just a hard sort of card stock, firm enough, but doesn't seem luxurious enough to go with the wine theme) is dirty. It is as if glue was on the book and someone tried to wipe it off, so there are these smears/smudges in several (4) places. It isn't as noticeable as a white/light mark on the black cover, but it does make the matte black finish look shiny in those places, and I am wary of trying to wash it off since the cover is just a thick paper product and doesn't seem waterproof - I don't want to make it worse.Fortunately, my husband is not the sort to care too much about it, so I probably won't go through the hassle of returning it, but I can tell you that if I had picked this up in a book shop, I would be looking to the back of the stack to find one without the marks or walking away. Plus, as it is a gift, you always want things to be nice, even if he won't care.- The other thing I wish it had is a quick sort of "suggested terms" section to give him ideas of how to describe what he is tasting (ie a page that says common appearance descriptions include: /common nose descriptions: / the most common taste descriptions include: citrus, berry flavors, smoky, tobacco, etc...).
