Review:

"Mark Denny’s beer book is different. Neither an 'ultra-technical account of the brewing process' nor a 'how-to plus a lot of recipes,' Froth! is a theoretical physicists exploration of the math and science behind the beer-brewing process. Packed with humor, history, and DIY enthusiasm, Denny shares with readers how he uses physics to home-brew his own beers that froth higher and taste better."

(Seed Magazine)

"Froth! offers a delicious blend of history and science that will delight beer aficionados and science buffs everywhere."

(Book of the Month Club)

"Accomplished home brewer and physicist Mark Denny has crafted a scientific yet extremely accessible, investigation of the physics and chemistry of beer."

(Beers of the World Magazine)

"Froth! is a nice read, garnished with just the sort of wit I'd expect from a British-born beer aficionado. It will be especially useful to home brewers, as it explains step by step how to make the stuff yourself."

(Andy Coghlan New Scientist)

"Froth! earns a solid 'A' for bringing science, brewing, and good writing together."

(Beerfestivals.org)

"For a scientist, Denny's approach is delightfully down to earth... There's plenty for the beerophile in Froth!"

(Vince Costanzo The Age)

"Denny provides a scientifically sound and often witty investigation of the physics and chemistry of beer."

(Greg Rienzi JHU Gazette)

"Beer is intriguing enough, but Denny's enjoyment of the subject adds to the fun."

(Stephanie Stone SpinSheet)

"A lively yet scientific examination of the physics and chemistry of beer."

(Midwest Book Review)

"Books about beer tend to be either purely descriptive or wholly scientific. Rarely does a book combine the two, much less with genuine wit and charm. Froth!... is the exception. It is a great joy to read and contains a wealth of information for a wide audience... Highly recommended."
