The guy's got swagger in spades...and that attitude comes through on the pages. That makes the book a fun read - even if your aspirations for facial adornment never move beyond the milk-mustache phase. --LA Times
I recommend every man have two things: A beard and this book. --Phil Olsen, Captain of Beard Team USA

This handbook is a quick read.(just over 100 pgs). Alot of info is crammed into those pages, and in a funny way. The author doesnt take things too seriously, which was nice. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking into growing and maintaining a beard/mustache. I gave it three stars because I did genuinely like it, although I do wish it was a bit longer.
Be advised he pulls no punches when it comes to three day growths you see on television or in advertisements, or people who won't take take of their beards and It was refreshing to read what many of us have been thinking. It was a bit light in some areas and somewhat self serving in others but all in all worth the price.
He is a 2 time winner of the 'World Champion Beard' award at The World Beard and Moustache Championship, held biennially at locations all over the globe. And he was only 23 years old the first time he won!
However, I did not buy this book for comedic purposes. This book is mostly philosophy and is lacking in technique, unless you are new to shaving or have only ever shaved with the basic run of the mill foam+plastic razor.
There is more information in this book about razor shaving than there is about grooming beards. I do acknowledge that there is useful information about an oil treatment and why you should brush your beard, but that hardly is worth the price of the book.
Jack Passion is doing things right, but is definitely new to writing, and definitely writes like a young man.
With that said.. this book is a MUST HAVE for any young man who is becoming old enough to have facial hair. Give it to your son, your nephew.. it's really more important than you might realize.
Thank you Jack! You are inspiring, and give the encouragement to everyone who has run into roadblocks on their way to rocking their facial hair in the best way they can. Please keep writing! I know you're proud of this work, but you have EPIC MASTERPIECES in your future!
