Bloomsbury presents I Drink Therefore I Am by Roger Scruton, read by Kris Dyer.
We are familiar with the medical opinion that a daily glass of wine is good for the health and also the rival opinion that any more than a glass or two will set us on the road to ruin. Whether or not good for the body, Scruton argues, wine, drunk in the right frame of mind, is definitely good for the soul. And there is no better accompaniment to wine than philosophy. By thinking with wine, you can learn not only to drink in thoughts but to think in draughts. This good-humoured book offers an antidote to the pretentious clap-trap that is written about wine today and a profound apology for the drink on which civilisation has been founded. In vino veritas.
"Four stars [Scruton's] indisputable passion for wine will send you off to your next glass better informed and more thoughtful than before." (Metro)
"[Scruton] writes deliciously...this book is a marvellous read - provocative, spicy, balanced and brimful of wise words...it is hugely recommendable." (The Oldie)
