Short and disappointing! This is such a short book the pages aren’t even numbered. It just touched various topics and was a disappointing purchase.

Bob Preston says:

Good general advice Good general advice. The author made a SERIOUS mistake in downgrading shavette straight razors. He advises away from a straight razor for beginners, which is a good idea. However, he states if you want a straight razor go for a top of the line. Nonsense!. A shavette is a good starter, and I am still using mine since it is MUCH cheaper, and does a VERY GOOD job.
