Cigars are a wonderful thing and history proves it out.
Having a cigar has always been the best way to stop and
relax in the moment and take stock. They've been used to
celebrate the birth of a child, a new job, to point up a
great wine or a special after-dinner drink..but mostly, they
have come to signify a camaraderie, a bond that brings
people together under a shared vice. This book is a
collection of stuff about cigars. Sure, there's the
prerequisite information about the history, about how to
choose the best stick, about what the sizes are and what the
ring gauges mean...all good stuff, to be sure. You'll learn
to talk the talk. But what is this thing "compendium"? The
meaning in the dictionary is "A short, complete summary; an
abstract or a list or collection of various items".
Basically stuff you wanna know. Ultimately, the point of
this book is to have, in the palm of your hand, a fun,
irreverent little reference guide.
