From the Author:

Dear Amazon food and drink enthusiast,

So, you've happened upon the page for my little book "Practically Useless Information: Food & Drink." I'd love to invite you out for a meal to tell you more about it right now, but that's really not possible.

Instead, imagine hanging out with a friend who loves not only to eat and drink but also to talk about eating and drinking. Think about all the fun you have with that friend when the two of you are chewing, sipping, and chatting together, covering a wide range of topics.

That's the kind of experience I've tried to slip between the pages of this little book. I've got to say, the publishers have done a great job on its design, making it feel like a classic old-fashioned reference book.

Better still, it doesn't cost that much, especially on Amazon! So why not pick up a copy for yourself, and get one for that friend while you're at it!

And I promise that if we ever cross paths in a restaurant, fast food joint, or bar somewhere, I'll be happy to autograph your copy for you. Best wishes, Norman Kolpas
