About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Use Wine to Make Sense of the World is the new book by award-winning wine writer Elliot Essman, a civilized romp through the limitless world of wine, written with a true sense of whimsy and fun. The book takes an ambitious look at how we can use wine to dig deep into the experience of life, love, the senses, our bodies, our thought processes, and more.

“My goal in writing this book was to weave together my entire experience as a human being and put it into the context of wine,” writes the author. “We have no substitute for wine in our civilization and culture. It touches everything we do, and every part of life we consider important.” Lest he be accused of taking himself too seriously, Essman never fails to inject his own brand of wit into nearly every segment. “I don’t want every reader to agree with my point of view,” he states. “My real goal is to ignite ideas and discussion, and have a lot of fun in the process.”

Key themed sections include:
• Use Wine to Make Sense of Desire and Lust
• Use Wine to Make Sense of the Five Senses
• Use Wine to Make Sense of Other People
• Use Wine to Make Sense of the Natural World
• Use Wine to Make Sense of Your Body
• Use Wine to Make Sense of Language
• Use Wine to Make Sense of Your Brain…

…all interspersed with Elliot’s probing observations on taste, wine behavior, the French, the British, wine education, literature, poetry, cocktails, philosophy, history, music, internet dating, and the rest of life as we live it on this planet. Unique!

Deftly constructed at 165 pages, Use Wine to Make Sense of the World is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Cooking / Beverages / Wine & Spirits category.
