Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Facial Hair Handbook

The Facial Hair Handbook - Jack Passion I got to meet Jack Passion at the Petaluma Whiskerino competition in Northern California. He's a competitive beard champion (full-time!) and I thought he was a pretty funny weirdo. His book is cute, kind of funny and full of very basic how-to's for men and beards and grooming. I think he should have gone a little further, either towards the jokey/silly side of things, or the more "professional beard growing" side, because as it is, it falls a bit flat. But it is a unique little publication and he's traveling the world as a full time beard champion, so that's pretty rad!
