The Making of Scotch whisky is one of the most important book in the whisky literature and I do agree on your comment. The book of Neil Gunn is one of the first whisky book and I have to agree with you to some extend, that this book is not the easiest to read. However, I found it easier to read and understand than you described it.
I have just posted the review of waking of a giant (http://www.whisky-news.com) and read the book over a week end. The story is well put together, but I was expecting a bit more from the author than to put together the story of Mark, Simon and Jim :? Also, some parts of the foundation of the Bruichladdich company have been not deserved enough attention to consider this book as a "serious" book.
