A potentially interesting subject; it's thousands of years old, rich in tradition, trivia, and history, and if you're a guy you end up devoting a fairly significant amount of time to this daily ritual over the course of your lifetime.

But, it turns out this book was just written as an extended commercial to hawk the products by a store of the same name. Kinda lame. Their advice boils down to use natural shaving creams not chemical. Wow.

Not what I expected. This book was just over 100 pages (read in just over an hour) but it just kept repeating itself. It really only needed to be about 40 pages given the lack of information it contained.

I wouldn't buy it. But worth a read. Love there badger brush, and shaving soap! Which I got because I read this book.
