69 of 71 people found the following review helpful By Mrs Wibble on 25 Aug. 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mr Wibble had very light blond hair when he was younger, and found he hardly needed to shave at all. Now middle-aged, his once boy-like chin has produced enough fuzz to have him likened to Wolverine. Since he was actually hoping for something more like Ezio Auditore, we thought this book might help. Alas, as others have said, the book did not meet our needs. Lots of history of beards, famous people with beards - even animals with beards! - but very lacking in terms of what to do with *your* beard. When it does get to the point, it speaks in terms of, "Some people do this, some people do that, but you might want to do something else..."

This book is a Christmas stocking filler. Go to the bearded-man hangouts on the Web if you want lots of help you can confidently use. As a wife coming into frequent contact with a bearded face, however, here's a few tips I have worked out from my own point of view, for what it's worth:

1. Use a beard shampoo and conditioner. Yes, it does make a difference. Mr Wibble uses Beardsley Ultra Shampoo in Wild Berry and Beardsley Ultra Conditioner - I can't link to them at the moment because they are unavailable on Amazon, but they are frequently in stock.

2. Get a little beard comb to slot into your wallet and use it to tidy up while you are training it. The one by Kent is nice.

3. Get a recommendation for a good wax and make sure you work it in your hands *a lot* before applying it. Great for getting your 'tache to sit down and behave.

4. Trim it, even if you are planning on joining ZZ Top. It looks so much healthier. By the way, dispose of the trimmings nicely. Beard hair looks exactly like...

As was mentioned by others this book is not so much a guide, but more of a gag. I would not recommend it if you are actually looking for an informative text on beard/moustache management.

This is more of a novelty book than a guide to beard and moustache management, I gave this to my partner for Christmas who has been growing a beard safe to say he looked at it Christmas Day and hasn't picked it up since, waste of money.

I bought this as a joke stocking filler for a friend who has an unruly beard - he liked it, no complaints.
