The back-cover of the book doesn’t say anything about the incredible detail in the book. Right from beginning, Robin’s and Strike’s world are pulled over your eyes and you experience London city in glorious, and somewhat shabby detail.

After Stay Hungry Stay Foolish and Connect The Dots, it has become a trend for books containing stories of entrepreneurs, and I am okay with that. The stories are mostly interesting and almost always insightful. Even if the story is repetitive, there is always a take away, even if very small. But I need that book to be written well. The Fresh Brew, sadly, fails at this task.
The book also describes guidelines and best practices to write checklists that actually work and are useful as opposed to being just a formality. It gives example of aviation industry checklists used worldwide and describes the principles used in framing them. This adds to the practical value of the book, which otherwise, would have just been a collection of stories and reflections.
When I was reviewing this book last week, my cousin brother (of age 11) saw the title and asked me about it. He asked if this book suggests we should not eat and become a fool. I didn’t know how to explain the meaning of the title to him in simple words. He is quite sharp, that’s true but it still takes some effort. I am going to take that effort now.
