I couldn't agree less with the editorial review from "Out" which claims there isn't a more definitive book dedicated to facial grooming. There's actually oodles of books sold right here on Amazon that are far more focused on the whiskers of the male species; I opted for this one because it didn't appear too, too serious (I'm looking at you, Mr. Jack Passion) or too whimsical. But definitive? Nah. Not close, way too much filler. It's definitely like the kinds of titles you see near the check-out line at bookstores: jaunty type set, slick illustrations, and not meaty enough to intimidate--an ideal stocking stuffer. If you're soberly trying to glean as much info as possible on the moustache, look elsewhere.

So, first off: I'm a chick. That may automatically disqualify me as the ideal reviewer. However, I'm daughter to a handlebar man, D-I-L to a 'full natural', and wife of a struggling, wannabe Tom Selleck. I have wiped enough bristles from my sink to fancy myself knowledgable on the topic. So...when this book arrived for my wannabe we hoped to catch some grooming tricks and familiarize ourselves with what styles the follicle-y challenged could realistically achieve. After all, it's a definitive guide! Hmmm.

What's great-

Hence the title, it's moustache-centric. If you wanna tame a Grizzly Adams beard, look elsewhere.

It's peppered with truly interesting historical tidbits and fun anecdotes.

There's a difficulty rating scale for each moustache and a time guideline for growth. Are you in it for the long haul? This title may inspire you to stick it out.

Simple, direct shaving guidelines are quite helpful! The 'Instructions' sections are well done. There should have been more of it.

Hey, if you have a little hair on your upper lip—even if you've had it for over a decade—that is NOT a "real" moustache. Got the goat-tee thing going? Nope. Got a full beard but still trimming the thing back like a hedge every week? Guess again. We are talkin’ REAL wider-than-your-mouth, hiding-your-entire-upper-lip moustaches here, nothing less. And it can be a real work of art: creative, classic, bold and sexy. But you need guidance to make it work and you need help with acquiring and using the right tools. This book will help you. It’s small, a quick read, inexpensive, fun and worth every penny. Be a man! Grow a “real” moustache! Buy this book.

I bought this as a small gift to go with my Christmas tip for my barber as a shop book. It's a throw-away. It's just a poorly bound, flimsy gag-gift that will probably fall apart before spring break.

Not worth spending money on. More of a book for the bathroom as it doesn't cover anything new or useful. Must have been written in an afternoon.

The title says it all. I thought I could learn something new, not in this so called book. Don't waste your money.

This little "reference manual" is very cool . Truly made to be somewhat serious yet a little more comical . Different staches , how long it takes to grow them , how to wear them..... Excellent ! And the difficulty rating system is perfect.. 1 1/2 moustaches !... 4 moustaches !! Nice book for the price .

Read it all in a half hour; it was nice in some aspects, but it was like reading the same paragraph over and over again 30 times or more.
