I read this book in 2011.  It isn't a bad read.  It gets a bit dry at times and is more about the macro-brew world but it covers a lot of ground.

Great book for entertainment. I don't think Dr. Bamforth intended it to be a brewing textbook.

Very true.  It is not a "how-to brew" book.  It covers a fair amount of history, current (as of 2010) world beer market stuff and anecdotes from his career as a brewer for the companies like AB.
