First of all, you should know what The World's Shortest Wine Book is NOT... It's NOT a worthy textbook containing more information than anyone normal could ever need. It's NOT a banal go-and-buy-this-without-using-your-brain guide. And it's NOT a book recommending wines that you either can't find or can't afford. Not that award-winning author Simon Woods has anything against those types of book. It's just that he wanted to write something for normal people, as in those who enjoy wine but aren't too precious about it. So in this guide to 21 ways to get more out of a bottle of wine, among other things you'll discover: What is the Punk Rock of wine When & why you should keep red wine in the fridge The ins-and-outs of Five + One Why more wine merchants should be like Julian What the Village People, Tom & Jerry and Sausages have to do with wine... Discover why Simon gives fortified wines the thumbs-up and special offers the thumbs down. And what cold tea and cola have to teach you about wine. Shoe-horning all that information and more besides into the 21 chapters wasn't easy but Simon Woods has just about managed it (although there are three extra chapters out there somewhere, as readers will find out. "Simon's writing style is lively, interesting and balanced. He's jokey without being forced, and critical without being an iconoclast. Best of all, he talks good sense" - Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak. To read more good sense - and give your wine life a major boost - just click 'Add to Cart' above.

For many years, law enforcement administrators, government officials, and researchers have explored the possibility of professionalizing law enforcement agencies and their officers. Some have called for mandatory college education requirements while others have argued for the formation of a national police force. In 1979, police practitioners from various law enforcement executive organizations met to develop a process to professionalize police agencies by instituting standards covering the wide range of police functions. The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) was born. This book describes the results of a study that evaluated the impact of CALEA accreditation on specific personnel administration practices in municipal police departments. The author compares accredited and non-accredited departments for personnel practices including procedures for officer selection, promotion, and the integration of formal education requirements.
