Here is what you will not find in this book:
* how to determine your skin type or
* what haircuts look good on you
* how to shave or choose razors/trimmers
* specific product recommendations, not even what chemicals to look for in the products or what to avoid
* any arguments, proof or scientific research why you need to moisturize or apply sunscreen
* no photos of protected/unprotected skin over a span of several years or any other examples, only stock photos of male models
His advice on how to determine your skin type: go to a dermatologist.
His advice for choosing a haircut: go to a stylist.
His advice what to do if you are bald or are getting bald: go to a stylist and ask what's best.
There are no examples of haircuts on different shapes of heads, there are no photos that compare what haircuts look good and bad on balding men. His advice for grooming your hair is to use shampoo, conditioner and go to a barber every three weeks. He covers shaving by advising you to shave with the grain, always use a sharp razor and use beard oils, go to a barber and... that's it.
What's worse, the book is repetitive. He addresses specific grooming needs for several types of lifestyles... except the advice you'll read is the same. I read about moisturizing and "eye cream with an SPF of no less than 50" eight times.
This book looks like a magazine, not a book.
This book was given me as a gift for Christmas. I really wanted to like this book so as to not hurt the feelings of the person who gave it to me. There's "reference" in the title, but the book is practically useless. I'd ask for a refund if I could.
