The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia, Third Edition
Authoritative, international and up-to-date, The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is arranged geographically and combines maps and photographs with information on all wine-growing areas, profiles of distinguished producers and assessments of individual wines. The book's easy-reference style, and wealth of practical advice, make it an unrivaled source of information for all lovers of wine -- from the occasional drinker to the connoisseur. Wines of the World. Distinguished wine authority Tom Stevenson examines the viticultural history of each wine-making country, discussing its wine-producing regions and the current reputation of its wines. He analyzes the factors affecting the taste and quality of each region's wines -- location, aspect, soil, microclimates, grape varieties, and methods of viticulture and vinification -- before assessing its appellations, the individual wine producers (chateaux or wineries), and, of course, the wines themselves. Enjoying Wine. Tom Stevenson provides practical guidelines on wine tasting, while an "author's choice" chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines. A star-rating system identifies the finest producers and highlights those offering the best value. A "taste chart" explains how to identify the flavors in a wine, and a "troubleshooter's guide" spots common wine flaws. Whether you are a newcomer wanting to explore the pleasures of wine or a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is the book to consult again and again.

Julius Caesar and the Transformation of the Roman Republic

Julius Caesar and the Transformation of the Roman Republic provides an accessible introduction to Caesar’s life and public career. It outlines the main phases of his career with reference to prominent social and political concepts of the time. This approach helps to explain his aims, ideals, and motives as rooted in tradition, and demonstrates that Caesar’s rise to power owed much to broad historical processes of the late Republican period, a view that contrasts with the long-held idea that he sought to become Rome’s king from an early age. This is an essential undergraduate introduction to this fascinating figure, and to his role in the transformation of Rome from republic to empire.

The Relationship Advantage: Become a Trusted Advisor and Create Clients for Life
Corporations, it seems, are always seeking the ""silver bullet"" that will create intimacy with customers. But most efforts fail from the moment they begin, say respected consultants, Tom Stevenson and Sam Barcus. The reason? Accountability for program leadership is placed on the sales force rather than on the executives and senior managers who have a more seasoned business perspective.

For the first time ever, Stevenson and Barcus outline the relationship-building processes used successfully by professional consulting firms. Sales professionals in other industries will learn never-before-published explanations and documentation regarding consulting firm approaches and techniques, including:

* Why top managers must lead the care and feeding of key relationships.

* An inside view of how consultants build long-term, trusted advisor relationships.

* The difference between creating demand and responding to bids-an important difference that sparks enduring relationships.

* Problem-solving techniques that can lead to deeper customer alliances.

* Why it's more important for a salesperson to be interested rather than interesting.

* A diagnostic process to prepare for and execute customer meetings that create value at every touch point.

* Tools and techniques to develop business acumen that provides insight into customer issues and initiatives.

With many practical examples, anecdotes, and coaching tips, The Relationship Advantage is required reading for executives or managers who know they should be driving key relationships but don't know how to do it.

The Wines of Alsace (Faber Books on Wine)
Having written on wine since the mid 1970s, Tom Stevenson was asked by the Sunday Telegraph to devise an annual wine publication for ordinary, everyday consumers, and in 1982 he conceived the Good Wine Guide, which he edited for a further 5 years. He divides his writing between consumer publications and more technical trade magazines and has been recognised for both having been voted "Wine Writer of the Year" in 1986 and "Wine Trade Writer of the Year" in 1990. In his own inimitable style, Tom Stevenson has not only profiled 300 producers and every style of Alsace wine, but has also analysed all 118 wine villages, 51 grands crus, 84 lieux-dits, 28 clos and 4 wine-producing chateaux. He sets the scene by succinctly summarising the region's rich and colourful history.
