Editorial Reviews

Review

"One Thousand Mustaches is the greatest book ever written about mustaches! It will make men, women, children and animals the world over want to grow their own. This book is the first step in a facial hair revolution!" —Morgan Spurlock, filmmaker (Super Size Me; Mansome) and Mustached Know-It-All

"As beards sprout everywhere, the mustache has become the new beard for those who want to distinguish themselves from the masses. One Thousand Mustaches is a fun romp through the history and meaning of the ’stache in all its furry forms." —Phil Olsen, World Beard & Moustache Championships

"A lighthearted cultural history of the 'stache — and its many incarnations — through the ages." —The Advocate

"A veritably funny look at mustaches, their bravado, and their irony." —New York Press

An easy and factual read on 'Staches. Who'da thought there had been both mandatory facial hair and facial hair prejudice across cultures and over the centuries? A very enjoyable read indeed!
