   Ideal Book for Cigar Lovers
I bought this book for my husband and he can not put it down. I have reviewed the book briefly and is truly detailed and well written.
   Great Book Highly
I have been smoking cigars for a while now, but I wanted to learn the history behind it. Book Highly Recommended Highly Recommend & recomend.
   My husband loves the book and would definitely recommend it to anyone who smokes cigars
The book arrived in a very timely manner.
   What could have been a great resource fails for sloppiness and flat-out bad editing
If you want to learn a thing or two about tobacco and cigars, you learn something here, Dislikes. My biggest complaint is that this book has almost no organization. Its purported chapters last anywhere from 50 to 100 pages, and their content is hardly confined to the formal topic at hand. Moreover, the author can hardly seem to stay at a single topic at a time, which makes finding any information of acute interest a needle-in-haystack endeavor. Despite being printed on black-and-white paper, the photographs are not all color-expressed for some inexplicable reason. They also flip between color and lavish, glossy paper. Even the photograph that purports to show the various shades that a wrapper could take in greyscale. Hardly an “ultimate ” cigar book, it needs an ultimate makeover first and foremost.
   Informative and amusing
You can learn all about how cigars are made and get quite a good list with brief descriptions of all the best cigars.
   Great Book
I am halfway through this book and I love it. It is so deep on all angles of cigars. I like the why and science behind everything so that it is great to understand where everything came from and why things are the way they are today.
   A good resource for new guys
Facebook taught me a lot about cigars stuff that I really did not know, but it was nice to know history. I would have liked it if it had gone into a little more detail about caring for cigars and picking cigars etc. But this is more of a personal preference for each person, this is a good book to read, but there are some other ones out there that will help you with this one.
This book arrived as a gift for someone last minute and the entire cover was ripped to shreds when it was bought. I am appalled at this, it was not SUPPOSED to be used. I have no time to give it back, so I must now return this gift without the cover. When I pay money, I would like to return with good quality.
   Must have for cigar lover's!
Tells you about all your favorite cigars and even the ones in museums that you never get your hands on. This is a perfect gift to help a cigar lover learn more about what they are smoking, how they are made, where they come from and their history.
   Excellent cigar book
Current and comprehensive in its coverage of cigar companies and the art of smoking a cigar.
