With an updated foreword by Peter Mayle, Acquired Tastes (formerly Expensive Habits), originally published in 1993, is a celebration of life's extravagances. Exploring an aspect of human nature that, although lying dormant in hard economic times, is capable of erupting with the hint of good fortune and the drop of a credit card. It samples the luxuries of Havana cigars, Parisian Hotels, bespoke London tailoring, hand-made shoes, the proper color for a stretch limousine and weighs the cost versus the pleasure of keeping a mistress. Explaining the proper way to eat true caviar while providing the listener with hours of pure, unadulterated escapism.
