Great! I couldn’t have said it better. I’m buying copies for every one of my waiters and bartenders and making them read it before the next staff meeting!

I doubled my tips the next night after reading this book.

Finally someone has written a book about what actually happens behind the bar. Sophie Delaplaine has captured the essence of bartending.

This book sums up what it took me 27 years to learn. Even I picked up a few tips.
--Carlos Rodriquez, Head Bartender at the Bath Club
Wow. Sophie Delaplaine doesn’t hold anything back. I was nodding and laughing as I read her book. She tells it like it really is. I wish this book had been out 10 years ago when I first started bartending. It would have really helped me.

Sophie Delaplaine shows that there is more to bartending than a full glass of vodka and ice.
