Other pipe books I have bought in the past were very general, with no specific brands mentioned and no detailed instructions on using a pipe. In this book the author shares his favorite brands and smoking techniques. He also makes some very interesting recommendations on modifying pipes to get a better smoke. This really is a great book and the beginning and end are very tongue in cheek. I can definitely recommend this for anyone who enjoys pipes.

I already own a copy of this book, but I am going to buy this new edition to see what's new. Rick Newcombe is an incredible writer and unbelievably knowledgeable about pipes and pipe smoking. The gentleman that introduces the book, Albert Mendez, is a brilliant and very entertaining writer. I can't recommend this book too highly. I read it and saw the light - picked up a Chonowitsch and a Bang (and I'm getting a Nordh for my birthday!) and now I'm down with the Danes!
