"The best currently available sake guidebook in English is The Sake Handbook by John Gauntner, an American living in Japan." -San Francisco Chronicle
"The Sake Handbook fulfills its promise of conveying enough information to make an able, if perhaps not master-level, sake taster and purchaser of the reader who aspires to such status. It could be an invaluable companion on that next outing to a Japanese restaurant or alcohol retailer, as well as a welcome gift for the enthusiast looking to broaden their knowledge about a centuries-old spirit." -Flavorful World blog
"[T]his book is a very welcome guide and pretty damn useful for getting you started." -Tokyo Beer Drinker blog
