Palmer's book resembles others that lead dudes through the heart of beer making. Beyond the basic steps, there is coverage of equipment and bottling and the treatment of specialty grains and all-grain brewing, along with almost 30 pages of recipes. Illustrations and photographs are sparse; stylistically, this falls somewhere between bare-bones and Snyder's (below) over inclusiveness. So while it's not the most exciting read on the planet, it's also not too technical and imparts a spirit of fun. Readers will acquire a solid knowledge base.
