At long last, the cigar boom has thrown off a book to really feast your eyes on. Jeff Camardas The Sensible Cigar Connoisseur is an uproariously funny guidebook to every important aspect of the hobby, from knowing what makes for a good cigar, to how to find and buy them at wholesale prices. Unlike any other author in the genre, Camarda covers every important aspect, from secrets of storage, countries and colors, counterfeits, cigar toys, and all resources, from other books, to the Internet and cigar radio! There's even a chapter written specifically for woman, so don't peek! Perhaps as important as the quality of the information, the book is extremely funny and entertaining. He even includes a hilarious quiz at the end, which both fixes the knowledge and makes the reader laugh uncontrollably. In fact, nearly every page makes you laugh out loud. If you have any interest in cigars, this book is for you. New smokers will find it an invaluable guide through the smoky territory of handmade, imported cigars. Veterans will find much useful here, and even more to laugh about. And all will learn from Lew Rothmans foreword on the future of the cigar industry. Mr. Rothman is president of J.R. Cigar, the world's largest seller of premium cigars.
About the Author Jeff Camarda has been an avid fan of fine cigars since his teens. As a stockbroker in early-'80's New York, he began the serious study of this wonderful pastime, with an eye to developing the art of finding truly outstanding cigars at rock-bottom prices - often far below wholesale - a skill he used to build Caribbean Wind, a discount cigar company in Florida. This book - his second - represents the culmination of a lifetime of cigar expertise, keenly informative and thoroughly amusing. Jeff is a Certified Financial Planner, and holds a Ph.D. in finance. Beyond cigars and his family, his other passion is boating, a hobby he has yet to make nearly as cost-effective as his smoking.

Dr. Camarda's new book is the perfect complement to the bull market in cigars. No irrational exuberance here. Just hard, lean, value-school advice. Read it! It will take you to new highs of cigar-smoking pleasure. -- (Tim Buchanan, stockbroker)
Sandy Jones
This book is just fantastic! I've been in the cigar business a long time, and sold my share of cigar books. This is the only one that pulls it all together. Shows you everything you need to know - including the "insider" stuff you just can't get in the slick magazines. With none of the boring stuff about tobacco fields. And it really made me laugh out loud, all the way through. The book is so good, I just can't keep enough copies in my shop! Only wish I'd had it 20 years ago.-- (Sandy Jones, owner Edward's Pipe & Tobacco)
Daniel R. Mills
Dr. Camarda has hit a home run! This is a humorous, in depth and wonderful perspective on the fine art of enjoying cigars. It has something for everyone, from the novice to the connoisseur. This book is as rich, robust and hearty as the cigars he smokes. It is a "must have" for anyone who is interested in this pastime. My hat is off to Camarda for compiling fantastic reading material for a subject that has eluded truly excellent treatment for far too long. -- (Daniel R. Mills, Exxon Corp.)
