About the Author
Michael Ham has been shaving for more than half a century, but only belatedly discovered how to shave with pleasure. He began by posting what he had learned from his and others' experience on his blog, leisureguy.wordpress.com. As he learned more, he expanded that brief post into a book for the novice wetshaver.

I'm new to wet shaving and have been trying to shave with this system basically on my own... sometimes with great results... others... not so good. Until I read this book... it took all the myths and bad "techniques" that I was using and transformed my shaving experience into a consistently smooth and great shave!
I knew that this "wet shaving" system... once applied correctly... would be the best and "economical" shaving experience I've ever had... and I will never return to the pricey cartridge shaving system again... That being said... this book has saved me a lot of time and money in acquiring the right shaving equipment from the very start. A very good thing to know if you're first starting out in wet shaving... a lot of stuff out there that is very expensive... but is not always necessary or useful in getting a great shave. Michael Ham will walk you through all the popular equipment of wet shaving... and explain their uses and whither they are necessary to your own individual shave or not.
Get this book and learn and enjoy the art of wet shaving... I did!
The book is very enjoyable to read and contains lots of tips and advice from a seasoned wet shaver. After I finished reading through the book I knew what equipment to buy and how to go about shaving.
So far my results form wet shaving have been incredible! I haven't touched my cartridge razor since and I can't imagine ever going back.
The book still servers as a reference as I continue to improve my skills and explore other razors and blades.
Don't waste your time searching all over the internet for tips on wet shaving, just get this book and you'll have all the information you need.
Shaving is no different ..... and this book is packed with more usable information than I have found on the internet, looking several hours a day for over two months (retired). All the information you need to know is here, from how to start, to how to add advanced shaving strokes to your skills. I started shaving with safety razors when it was that or a straight razor and you just "whacked" your wiskers off in a single pass. I can't believe I knew so little about shaving for so many years.
I'm not a Pro yet, but I'm pretty much a "scratch" shaver now and I love shaving every day. I also love all my razors. Do yourself a favour, the book costs no more than a couple of shaving cartridges. That's a no brainer.
