Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Pretty much anything you would ever want to know about facial hair is included in Peterkin's book. It contains entertaining chapters on everything from bearded women to the significance of facial hair in the gay community. One big annoyance was the sidebars that can wrap around and cover several pages worth of margins, meaning that you have to pick a spot to stop reading the main text and go after the additional stuff.
