First half is great; second drags

This biography of the world's leading wine critic is generally terrific. The book begins as a true biography with insightful anecdotes about the man, his life, and his taste. The second half tends to focus more on the controversy surrounding Mr. Parker, which I found tiresome. Disclaimer: I'm a fan of Mr. Parker, so I enjoyed the "getting to know him" parts of the book and less the "he has flaws" parts of the book. That being said, I thought the book was largely objective. All in all, if you like wine at all, you will enjoy this readable biography. Enjoyed the pictures as well - very additive to the story.
