This work is based on a fundamental fascination with cigars and everything to do with them: their history, production, how you enjoy them and, not least, the people who smoke them. You will find descriptions of how the wonderful cigars are made in all the great cigar nations of the world: Cuba, Nicaragua, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, the USA and so on. By the help of a selection of breathtaking photographs and illustrative explanations, the reader is invited into the fabulous world of cigars. The novice will find useful information about cigars from seed to consumption while experts will have their knowledge supplemented by new insights. For instance, the book examines not only the origins of the taste of cigars, but also how they stimulate our brains. Even people who are not themselves seduced by the sweet smoke will marvel at the extensive work that has been put into preparing the most beautiful and comprehensive work on cigars of our time.

A beautiful and the most comprehensive piece of work I have seen to this day on cigar production. Vary captivating images and they get around every detail from growing to production. Very heavy book, I'd say it's definitely value for money.

What a piece of Art this is. I guess I am a bit of a collector of beautiful coffee table books but this one beats all of my many proud possessions. By quite a distance. The photo's are truly amazing (one more beautiful than the other) and together with the text and insights they draw you into this fascinating universe. I am not even a Cigar "aficionado" - I just like to learn and take in new inspiration. And what an inspiration. Simply stunning!

As a former smoker (cigaret, cigar and pibe) I really felt like I wanted to smoke again. So many perfect timeless photos of people enjoying the cigar and its way from plant through harvest and fabrication - pure art :-) The next time I will enjoy a cigar (without inhaling) I will have this book on my lap.
