This book goes over some really cool history and basic ideas on the "think a drink" and "any drink called for" plot. I don't think these exact methods and descriptions hold up so well in modern times BUT they certainly helped me inspire my current working version of "Think a drink" I perform regularly. This is a super easy quick read but might only be appealing to those who are specifically interested in the "Think a drink" and "Any Drink Called For" plots. Some of the information could inspire other plots but this book is definitely suggested for a specific study on these plots.
