Is there much in the way of technical whisky making/blending information?

Started to read it. Quite interesting indeed, but I do find the quality of the print on the low side. It gives a feeling of a book printed in the 1980s. Fortunately, the conten is very interesting (so far).

jmrl's comment hit the nail on the head.
This delightful, anecdotal, fact filled book is littered with whisky history both modern and old.
It doesn't skimp on corporate take-overs, still a very pertinent topic, nor on the joys of blended whisky, which is refreshing.
Many a time you are made to feel inferior if you enjoy a good blend. Single malts may be where it is at, but blends still make up 90% of the market so Richard and Gavin's book is a big up to the makers, blenders and drinkers of that drink.
I'd thoroughly recommend this book.
