The Cigar Companion: A Connoisseur's Guide

The Cigar Companion: A Connoisseur's Guide - Anwer Bati;Simon Chase The only reason I read this was curiosity. I found it at the public library near a book on the shelf that I was actually seeking. I figured I'd check it out and read it. While I do not smoke (nor do I have an interest in starting to smoke), I do find the history and craft of cigars to be interesting. I do like the various art designs and logos the companies used. From reading the book, I learned about a broad range of brands from those that are so-so to the ones with old histories and pedigrees. I also learned a bit about where some of the names come from such as the Punch brand (yes, named after the British periodical). Overall, it was a nice little book to look over and learn a bit more about this topic.
