Format: Hardcover
Sherman's book is a good introduction to the art of cigars. The glimpse into the history of one of NY's premier cigar establishments is especially interesting, and the graphics are good. On the downside, I think the author spends too much time promoting his own brands, and occasionally strays from the core subject.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers the entire range of the cigar experience, from the history of cigar making, through the various countries that produce the best tobacco and cigars, through selection and care, to how to give a cigar dinner (with recipes!). I've given away two copies to friends and I'm ordering more.

Format: Kindle Edition
I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn't know anything about cigars, but wants to learn. The author could be very pompous, given his background, but he isn't. He says that you should smoke what you like and seems to mean it. The books contains an excellent introduction to how tobacco is grown, the various leafs, and what they are used for. He then goes on to explain how to shop for a cigar and how to smoke one. The last chapter has suggestions for cigar dinners, menus included, which is sort of cool. I'm not sure I would have been willing to pay the hardcover price, but as a Kindle book it is well worth it. As is the case with all Kindle books, the pictures and illustrations are useless, but that is not Mr. Sherman's fault.

Joel Sherman includes a wealth of rare and worthwhile information in the first 3 Chapters of this book. I really enjoyed this one and it is a great addition to my collection of cigar books.
