This book is definitely showing it's age and missing many of the popular beer styles of today. I didn't learn very much from this book and don't bother referencing it at all anymore. The most annoying part of the book is that it didn't have any recipes (to my knowledge), it just compiled statistics of beers sent to the National Homebrew Competitions. You can find much better information on the internet.

I was disappointed with this book. The "statistics" on second round NHC recipes - which take up much of this book - are of dubious relevance. Knowing that 51% of recipes used Hallertau hops, 40% used Saaz 5% used some Cascade, and 10% used a bit of Munich Malt and the odd one used some wheat, or 30% used Bohemian lager yeast but one used some obscure lager yeast at ale temperatures with no lagering but still fluked a great pils doesn't help me to "design a great beer"! There was some useful stuff in amongst the distracting numbers, so drop the pages and pages of meaningless tables in the next edition please.
