I bought this book for my husband, who has been growing a rather impressive beard. It was a fun gift, everybody had to flip through and look at the pictures, which are very well done and interesting. I loved the handful of essays scattered throughout the book, written by various contestants of the 2009 National Beard and Mustache Championship. Who knew there were so many beard styles and even names for the styles!! I guess I was expecting a slightly larger book, sizewise, but the small size didn't take away from our enjoyment of the book.

But this book is small! Other than the tiny size, there are good pictures of beards in here, and the author shares his personal connection to the world of beards.

I wish it was available as a large 14x12 book. Other than that I enjoyed this book. Bunch of pictures of beards. Page after page of famous epic beards from around the world.

This is the best beard book I've ever had the pleasure of reading. After scouring the lands for a beard book worthy of my shelf, I've finally found it.

Great little book. Very interesting designs for the long beard, Duck Dynasty kind of guys. We paired it with a mini flat iron!
