However it was published 18 years ago. There are a number of references (obviously now dated) within the book to this time frame. Cuban cigars were going through a tough patch at that time and get little press- certainly undeserving today. This also means that all the recent cigar producers and developments are missing. He is reluctant to rank cigars and maybe as a retailer, mail order distributor, not wanting to disappoint some of his suppliers is almost understandable.
What is really annoying are the typos in the Kindle version. A pyramid cigar is defined as having a narrow head that widens into a wide fool (should be foot), a subheading on creating your own cigar dinner talks about "Fine mine, fine food, fine spirits" and other ingredients for the event, where the glaring typo should refer to wine. If that was the only two, then fine I'm pedantic. Unfortunately it is not.
I still think this is a good introductory book worthy of the new Nat Sherman generation to rewrite and bring up to date with the developments in the cigar world,

Not bad at all for what it is supposed to be. Expect the basics and some history. Not bad.Published 17 months ago by Jerome Hanson
