Description

The bestselling 30-Second… series takes a revolutionary approach to learning about those subjects you feel you should really understand.

Each title selects a popular topic and dissects it into the 50 most significant ideas at its heart. Every idea, no matter how complex, is explained in 300 words and one image, all digestible in just 30 seconds.

30-Second Whisky uses this unique approach to demystify the subject for everyone. Compiled by whisky experts, not elites, this beginner’s guide serves up all you need to read the message in the bottle in 50 small nips--or rather, a mere 300 words and one picture.

Here’s how to enjoy whisky--or whiskey--from the single malts and blends of Scotland to the acclaimed Irish, North American, and Asian counterparts.
