I couldn't agree less with the editorial review from "Out" which claims there isn't a more definitive book dedicated to facial grooming. There's actually oodles of books sold right here on Amazon that are far more focused on the whiskers of the male species; I opted for this one because it didn't appear too, too serious (I'm looking at you, Mr. Jack Passion) or too whimsical. But definitive? Nah. Not close, way too much filler. It's definitely like the kinds of titles you see near the check-out line at bookstores: jaunty type set, slick illustrations, and not meaty enough to intimidate--an ideal stocking stuffer. If you're soberly trying to glean as much info as possible on the moustache, look elsewhere.

So, first off: I'm a chick. That may automatically disqualify me as the ideal reviewer. However, I'm daughter to a handlebar man, D-I-L to a 'full natural', and wife of a struggling, wannabe Tom Selleck. I have wiped enough bristles from my sink to fancy myself knowledgable on the topic. So...when this book arrived for my wannabe we hoped to catch some grooming tricks and familiarize ourselves with what styles the follicle-y challenged could realistically achieve. After all, it's a definitive guide! Hmmm.

What's great-

Hence the title, it's moustache-centric. If you wanna tame a Grizzly Adams beard, look elsewhere.

It's peppered with truly interesting historical tidbits and fun anecdotes.

There's a difficulty rating scale for each moustache and a time guideline for growth. Are you in it for the long haul? This title may inspire you to stick it out.

Simple, direct shaving guidelines are quite helpful! The 'Instructions' sections are well done. There should have been more of it.

I bought this as a small gift to go with my Christmas tip for my barber as a shop book. It's a throw-away. It's just a poorly bound, flimsy gag-gift that will probably fall apart before spring break.

Could not ask for more. Bought for a research project and the information in this book is all the little bits that I was missing before. The design is lovely. Graphics are super clean and clear .The book size is small - which I think works well for this publication. The writing is also well done.

Not worth spending money on. More of a book for the bathroom as it doesn't cover anything new or useful. Must have been written in an afternoon.

I Love this book cause it was for my sons 13th Birthday and we did the Mustache theme so it was very fitting! This book has lots of ideas and information for someone who really wants to use it to learn how to do certain Mustaches!

The title says it all. I thought I could learn something new, not in this so called book. Don't waste your money.

I bought this book as a birthday present for my dude. He was talking about growing out a handlebar mustache, and was asking me how to style it. Like I, a young woman, would be some mysterious expert on such a thing. So I ordered this book.

The book itself is pretty tiny. But it's also hardcover. The pages are thicker, and durable. I was surprised at the quality of this book.

The mustaches inside vary from things you'd see on a gentleman or a sir, to things you'd see on Hitler, or Dali. It's quite the variation. It also gives information on how to grow out each mustache, how to style each mustache, and suggestions on outfits for each mustache. The outfit thing is a bit ridiculous, but it gives the book some extra flair.

This little "reference manual" is very cool . Truly made to be somewhat serious yet a little more comical . Different staches , how long it takes to grow them , how to wear them..... Excellent ! And the difficulty rating system is perfect.. 1 1/2 moustaches !... 4 moustaches !! Nice book for the price .
