Myriam Zaoui, Eric Malka. I saw this book after getting a straight razor shave at The Art of Shaving in Las Vegas. I became a fan but the products were expensive, luckily I could get it for less online

Myriam Zaoui, Eric Malka. I became a fan but the products were expensive, luckily I could get it for less online. The book is an interesting mix of the history of shaving and of using the proper techniques to shave as well as proper skin care, etc. It's a good little reference book in regards to the everyday ritual of shaving and what you probably didn't learn from dad and grandpa. оставлен dougerwin0824.

This is a handy book for those of us in the man's world who have been shaving for some time with no real idea of how to do it, just our best guess.

Interesting look at shaving, it's more than dragging a sharp piece of metal across your face. It has helped me change some of the products I use for better ones. It confirmed a couple I already chose. I have this on Kindle, my friend has the actual book. It not a long book to read.

This is a handy book for those of us in the man's world who have been shaving for some time with no real idea of how to do it, just our best guess. Some of it might be old hat to the experienced shaver, but some of it won't be, particularly the addition of lotions and a skin care regimen.

This is a manual on how to shave, as well as how to care for your skin. We need to get past thinking of these as separate things. They are not. If you do one and not the other you have an inferior product. Take care of your skin prior to and during the shave and half the battle is won. In fact, with proper skin care and proper shaving technique and equipment you will actually look forward to shaving.

My only complaint with this book is its adoption of the multi-razor cartridges of today. These expensive and inefficient heads are one of the banes of my existence. I have adopted the older safety razor for my use, which provides a far closer shave and for infinitely less money. Further exploration of this topic would have made the book better, in my opinion, and offered a realistic contrast to the status quo of today.

Still, it is a minor quibble with a great little book.

I have three comments about this book.
1. If they had not spent so much time repeating the same three things, this book would be only half as long as it is. The actual advice is sound but really you don't need to repeat it over and over (unless you're looking for word count)
2. If you're trying to sell me a Cadillac, don't give me a Yugo after I've paid you. This book (the hardbound edition) is probably pretty cool as a coffee table piece, but otherwise not worth the price (see comments 1&3)
3. All of the useful information in this book is also in a Youtube video by these same people.

All that being said this is a really nice if a bit expensive sales brochure. I had already purchased some of their shaving products, and love them. This book however is something that I am very dissapointed in.

This book provides good reading to understand a proper shave. It does give some insight to using straight razor, safety razors even electric shavers. the books mostly concentrates on the care of your skin during and after your shave. This is good because this is what most people miss when they shave and go through out the day with a crappy feel to there face if not razor burns and cuts. if you are willing to take shaving serious and care for your face then I suggest reading this book. if you are looking for a fast way to get through a basic don't care shave, go to Walgreens.

I have just started trying the Art of Shaving products buy purchasing there sample kit. this I say is worth it. you get a $25.00 coupon with it to use for your next purchase. yes it cost you $25.00 to purchase it but once again are you serious about a proper clean close shave. I have been shaving for over two years using a straight razor and a safety razor and learned allot along the way. I will never go back to the chemicals and plastic again.

so food for thought treat yourself and toss out those disposables pieces of plastic for good.

This book is good for first time shavers but for anyone else its simply a snapshot of the art of shaving when it was written over 10 years ago. There is a lot of new stuff since. I happen to think the Gillette Proglide Fusion is the finest thing any human has created.
Kitaxe
This book is exactly what the cover says. It teaches you techniques for the different ways to shave. Some have said it is just an advert for the Art of Shaving stores but I never felt like I needed to but any of their stuff to get a better shave. If you feel you want to try to learn to get a better shave and can get it at an affordable cost then go for it. But you are asking a guy that loves having tons of books!

Very happy
Very informative and thorough
Great story with a lot of education about a task most men take for granted every day. There's a way to make this act an art instead of a chore.
