Reviewed by Dan Bartlett

Andrew Corrigan has created the ultimate reference companion regarding the art (perhaps I could go so far as to say science) of all that is Dining, Wining and Conversation. As a young professional eager to make my mark in the world of work, business and ‘city-life’, I found the explanations to be comprehensive enough to be immediately useful, but simple enough to understand and recall. I am always one for anecdotes and tidbits as well – the author’s experience has shined through in this regard. I read cover to cover, but will keep as a reference, for all those times when I have to make “that great impression”.
