By Michael J. Gelb

Running Press, $20

Much has been written about the physical health benefits of moderate wine consumption, but what can it do for the mind and soul? Creativity expert Michael J. Gelb plumbs that question in his new book. Part wine primer, part self-help guide, it covers all the enological basics—varietals, vintages, buying, storing, tasting, pairing, and so on—but Gelb’s mindful approach sets his book apart from other appreciation guides. He weaves in references to great art and big ideas and offers creative exercises that elevate wine tasting from a flavor experience to an intellectual one. Whether you’re looking to awaken your inner genius or to simply savor every sip, Gelb will get you there.
