and, (June 2017) there's a book.........

early reviews by my friends on Facebook who have researched Bourbon are mixed.
Here's what I posted there:

As I'm a fanatic about Bourbon I read this with a critical eye. It surely is an interesting read,..... though I had some qualms. I think my main criticism is that often I wondered if the author drifted into making stuff up....I mean, ALL those meticulous details about things only Ray would know...I very often wondered, did it become a fiction book? Some nice name dropping though (people love that)....

And some footnotes (there were none) would have added some credibility, the bibliography is a bit vague, and the discography could have been more thorough, I know....picky, picky....but historians want things to be correct.

below, I reposted my review on Facebook, and it garnered these comments
