Er selber sagte in einem Interview:
Here's a general idea of what the book contains:
-A life of Jerry Thomas, with lots of never-before revealed incidents, interviews, etc.
-A brief history of American bartending.
-100+ drinks, divided into families and each with the original, unadapted recipe supplemented with historical and mixological notes as full as I could get away with.
-A plethora of miscellaneous anecdotes, digressions, queries, thumbnail sketches and whatnot.
-A section of drinks inspired by the Professor from many of the guiding lights of modern mixology.
Here's what it doesn't contain:
-The 35,000-word section I wrote on punchbowl drinks. Not only did this make the book unpublishably long, but it turns out that most of these were pinched from other books, not from Thomas's own experience and travels. I'm working on turning them into a book on their own.
-Where to get pine splints
(Die Sektion über Punches wurde so groß, das eine Veröffentlichung zu diesem Thema im Speziellen wahrscheinlich Anfang 2009 heraus kommt.)
Man darf gespannt sein - Die Vorbestellung ist abgegeben.
