Facial hair is totally BACK! But anyone attempting to navigate this treacherous and codified world without consulting Nick Burns and Allan Peterkin is destined for gruesome public humiliation.
Simon Doonan, author of Eccentric Glamour
This new book on beards helps men navigate the treacherous waters between laughingstock and Jake Gyllenhaal.... [the book] suggests age-appropriate styles, advising, 'Never apologize, never explain.'
New York Times
If knowledge is power, The Bearded Gentleman will put any pogonophobic to rest. Authors Allan Peterkin and Nick Burns have poured untold amounts of hours into detailing the history and future of facial hair, along with witty (but entirely practical) advice.
From the basic (avoiding ingrowns) to the very specific (achieving the ultimate Klingon), this definitive manual offers advice and instructions for dozens of looks. Our suggestion? Leave the Fu Manchu to the amateurs and use this book to coin your own signature style.

The book was disappointing in that approximately 30 pages is devoted to shaving. I bought a book to learn about beards, not shaving.
