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.

This is a fun book for the collector of silly coffee table books. It's an interesting read and thoroughly amusing.

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 .

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 Love this book cause it was for my sons 13th Birthday and we did the Mustache theme so it was very fitting! This book has lots of ideas and information for someone who really wants to use it to learn how to do certain Mustaches!

It's more of an idea book than a Grower's Guide. If you want to do something with your face, but not sure what, then this book can give you some ideas. It's not what I was looking for. I knew what I wanted to do, but I needed advice on how to get my moustache under control. This book does not have that. I ended up learning on my own through trial and error.

It's a nice, lighthearted read, good for a few chuckles. For that, I would give it five stars. As a "guide" I would give it one star. It really should have a different title, but I'm sure this title gets it more sales than one matching the content would.

It's full of fashion advice, and I couldn't tell if the author was serious about that or just being facetious. It seems like it might be a little of both. Anyway, whatever seriousness there may be in the fashion advice, the author's taste clearly does not match my taste in clothing.

I purchased this for my son. He read thru it and seemed amused. I wasn't entirely sure if it was a "know all" type book but he did enjoy it.
