Excellent read, the images only accent the content. Great tool for helping teach my husband more about cigars, the styles, and help him build his taste preferences for the individual options.

I bought this book as a gift, but spent some time perusing it. Tobacco is an interest and hobby of mine, and the book is a great addition to any enthusiast's library. I recommend it highly.

Since I began enjoying the art of good cigars, it's nice to have a companion coffee- table book to keep beside my humidor.
Someday I hope to own my own cigar shop. So I am looking for as many books as I can find on the subject
