The Italians have La Dolce Vita, the French have Joie dVivre. What do Americans have? Happy Hour? Miller Time? We need help! New York Times bestselling author Michael Gelb (How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci) opens our eyes to the remarkable power of wine to tap into our creative potential, awaken our genius, and forge bonds with friends and co-workers. Although there are many excellent guides to wine appreciation, Wine Drinking for Inspired Thinking offers a whole brain approach that is unequivocally unique. Part 1 provides the practical left-brain knowledge readers will need to handle themselves in any wine-related situation. Part 2 explores how wine can serve as a catalyst for creativity and right brain thought. Gelb takes his readers on a wine-soaked journey through history, introducing them to the greatest wine-related art, music, and architecture. In Part 3, readers will be guided step-by-step through a delightful process of bringing family, friends, or colleagues together for Inspired Thinking wine parties.
If Wine Drinking for Inspired Thinking could make one promise to its readers, its that it will not only improve their enjoyment of wine, but will also enhance their enjoyment of life.
