Editorial Reviews

Review

The guy's got swagger in spades...and that attitude comes through on the pages. That makes the book a fun read - even if your aspirations for facial adornment never move beyond the milk-mustache phase. --LA Times

I recommend every man have two things: A beard and this book. --Phil Olsen, Captain of Beard Team USA

I enjoyed Jack Passion's Book. I've been letting my beard grow long for about a year now, and decided I should look into caring for this mess 'o hair on my chin! I've just used shampoo and conditioner before - not any more...The Facial Hair Handbook explains that shampoo strips your hair of important oils your body produces and "when used on your face, can and will cause skin irritation." This is just a small offering amongst the many tips in this book.
This handbook is a quick read.(just over 100 pgs). Alot of info is crammed into those pages, and in a funny way. The author doesnt take things too seriously, which was nice. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking into growing and maintaining a beard/mustache. I gave it three stars because I did genuinely like it, although I do wish it was a bit longer.

I don't usually write many reviews but with so many 5 star reviews I feel this can be a little misleading. I bough this book on my Kindle Fire. The book has some good information on growing and maintaining a beard. But, the book is long on general information and short on specifics. The book makes multiple mentions of the website facialhairhandbook.com for further information. I was excited as there is so many different products and lines out there for the bearded folk, I came home and quickly looked up the website hoping it might help navigate this new inquiry. Imagine my surprise when the website is just one BIG ad for this book with no further info. Every link just brings you back to this Amazon webpage.

So, if you want a general guide to growing a good beard with some good chuckles, the book is definitely worth the read. I just found the fact of someone at the forefront of the bearded revolution not standing behind the product with the information promised in the book a little annoying.

I gave Jack Passion 5 stars for his book, "The Facial Hair Handbook" because it is a thorough, practical guide to all things related to facial hair. If you've ever wondered how many times you can use the phrase "facial hair" in one small book, this is a good way to find out. Jack Passion uses it repeatedly, yet the phrase never gets old.

The book covers many aspects of facial hair, most of which I had never even considered, such as split ends, oils and combs, and many other topics that might be of interest to a guy thinking about, or actively growing, facial hair (see how easy it is to use the phrase repeatedly?).

I'd deem this light reading, but nonetheless useful. What really interested me was Jack's personal story, because as he says, each person is different and the reasons, styles, and methods we use must be personal and real to us. It is this affirmation of individuality that was most valuable to me.

Jack Passion has earned the right to write a book about growing a beard from his national and international top placements and wins. I have to think though that most of us will not take the years of growing to achieve a monster growth like he has. Yet if you are so inclined he goes through all the stages that it takes to get a respectable growth. I already have a full beard but I wanted to know any grooming or shaping tips as I decided to grow mine out a few inches. He answered all my questions and more I hadn't thought of.
Be advised he pulls no punches when it comes to three day growths you see on television or in advertisements, or people who won't take take of their beards and It was refreshing to read what many of us have been thinking. It was a bit light in some areas and somewhat self serving in others but all in all worth the price.

It's a short book (about 100 pages) and a quick read. The book is full of humor, especially at the beginning. Otherwise, I have to say that I was pretty unimpressed. The book is full of generalities and light on specific tips or recommendations. In all, I'd say that only about five pages contained any truly useful information.

Great starter for beginning beard growers like myself. I'm applying a lot of the advice as I'm growing it out. I'm sure you could find it elsewhere, but for those looking to find good advice without looking too hard and sifting through the internet. Would have given it 5 stars if it would have included broader discussion and more detail on the topics...expect to get what-Jack-Passion-recommends and nothing else. I did appreciate that he tried to make the content interesting rather than just dry do's and don'ts though.

Book was entertaining,I laughed out load a few times,I started a beard last year during the major league baseball playoffs,the book is more about growing a beard and not worrying what other people think,after watching whisker wars I decided to jump in with both feet and start maintaining a nice beard,instead of it looking like a birds nest on my face,for beard shampoos and conditioners,I shop on Amazon,read the reviews and make your choice. I have much respect for Jack Passion,he worked hard getting big red looking good,anyone can grow a beard,maintaining it is where the work comes in,believe in what u are doing!

It is a bit on the whimsical side and not a bad read, but he does not give you any great revelations to the mysteries of beard growing. You can find the same information doing a little work on Google.
