    1. Barbotastic!This extensive examination of pogonosophy, pogonology, pogonomancy, and other ancient studies of beards and barbotechnology has everything an amateur pogonosopher could ask for! Including illustrations! It ranges from the technical to the romantic to the absurd. And, as promised, it does rank poets by beard weight!Interesting fact:The strength of the whisker as a natural fiber is unequaled in nature – a rope woven of human hair has ten times the tensile strength of hemp and approxi [...]

    2. A wonderful Swiftian satire dealing with all things beard. Beginning with an outrageous biography of the author, the reader journeys through the book discovering such highlights as beard heraldry, lore, adages and many other topics dealing with "pogonology." Verbiage such as "purblind aesthetic rectitude" convinces one of the work's academic nature. Numerous etching style illustrations light-heartedly interpret the author's text. When reading, be aware! You, too, could contract bartigfreude.

    3. As a piece of fictive history there are moments when it gets a bit silly. Best read in small chunks to better enjoy the comic nonsense of it. Still, Gilbert Alter-Gilbert has done all beard-lovers a favor here, and I still can't stop laughing at Mehendra Singh's illustration of two gas-masked workers in a pit "chlorinating an unruly beard."

    4. Gilbert Alter-Gilbert is a true scholar and a gentleman and a twisted, sick, comic genius of all things hirsute.
