Overview

"I am personally offended by this book because my mustache wasn't included. However, I endorse it because I am, and always will be, a huge fan of Tom Selleck's 'stache."
--Meredith Vieira, The Today Show

If a man has a mustache, it's hands-down his most distinguishable facial feature. Whether it's a handlebar, pencil-thin, fu Manchu, toothbrush, or horseshoe--it's how he's identified and described. This book recognizes this fact and celebrates the most famous mustaches--and the faces behind them. From politicians and ball players to pop stars and actors, this book covers them all with wit and humor. Authors Jon Chattman and Rich Tarantino have provided profiles and 'stache-analysis for the forty-nine men and one woman who made the cut. (One can't count out Frida Kahlo's artistic bigote!)

It also includes sidebar lists that rank the top 'staches in all sorts of categories as well as mustache trivia and a timeline that traces the facial hair's evolution. It's hip again to rock full on facial hair. And Sweet 'Stache is the guide for anyone looking to get in on the must-have mustache action.

    Fun little book about facial hair

    (Suggested backing track: "Facial Hair" by Kobi LaCroix.)

    Like many such books, there isn't a whole lot to this one; it won't be one of the great humor classics or anything. But it's a fun and silly little book that surveys some of the great stache wearers of our time, from obvious ones like Burt Reynolds and Charlie Chaplin to people you might not normally think of, like Dennis Franz. There isn't a whole lot to say other than that; it's one of those books that's good for an impulse buy and some quick laughs.

    I'm docking one star for picking Jason Giambi over Rollie Fingers though -- baseball's greatest handlebar deserved better than to be relegated to a "other famous baseball 'staches" list.

    A good nightstand companion

    A nice little book to keep on the nightstand for end-of-day reading. Nice and light, yet funny and interesting. Never has so much thought gone into researching and ranking a little hairstrip.

    SWEET STACHE by Jon Chattman/Rich Tarentino

    This book is a gas! For gift-giving it is perfect! For enjoyable reading it is perfect! It lists those who have the "stache" and enjoy it! You can find your favorite "stache" people in here, including: tom Selleck, "Weird Al" Yancovic, Gene Shalit, Hulk Hogan, Albert Einstein (!), Keith Hernandez and, of course, Bert Reynolds. Capsule versions of these important people are included, with their pride in their 'staches.
    But it for yourself! Buy it for your friends! Buy it for your Dad (or Mom, as the case may be) But, in the words of Chattman, "Mustaches have been an integral part of Americana, and once you read this book, you will realize their importance and never quite look at facial hair the same way again."
