Your books are a welcome change from that unimaginative pabulum. I extensively highlighted and underlined the Q2 Industry Guide because... there’s information that’s relevant about the industry, brewing technology, consumer demand, competitive dynamics, finance, etc. I actually learned something that will help me do a better job... And the layout/production quality – including that of the ads - is superb.
