"I am personally offended by this book because my mustache wasn't included. However, I endorse it because I am, and always will be, a huge fan of Tom Selleck's 'stache."
--Meredith Vieira, The Today Show
If a man has a mustache, it's hands-down his most distinguishable facial feature. Whether it's a handlebar, pencil-thin, fu Manchu, toothbrush, or horseshoe--it's how's he's identified and described. This book recognizes this fact and celebrates the most famous mustaches and the faces behind them. From politicians and ball players to pop stars and actors, this book covers them all with wit and humor. Authors Jon Chattman and Rich Tarantino have provided profiles and 'stache-analysis for the forty-nine men and one woman who made the cut. (One can't count out Frida Kahlo's artistic bigote!) It also includes sidebar lists that rank the top 'staches in all sorts of categories as well as mustache trivia and a timeline that traces the facial hair's evolution. It's hip again to rock full on facial hair. And Sweet 'Stache is the guide for anyone looking to get in on the must-have mustache action.
