André Hueston Mack narrates his quirky and highly informed audiobook with a quick pace, clear tone, and conversational style. He intimately shares his remarkable rise in the narrow world of the sommelier and the even tighter confines of the renowned restaurants The French Laundry (Napa Valley) and Per Se (New York City), where he worked. An African-American in the whitest of professions, he shares his personal story through the unique vantage of the wines, beers, even sparkling waters that have defined his career. An entrepreneur who makes wines in Oregon and has family and food businesses in Brooklyn, Mack is worth listening to. The fine interview with the author at the end offers the listener additional insights on how he makes wine and his appreciation for the wine-centric TV show "Frasier."
