I 'd have to say this board is far better than any book I've seen for what you are looking for. There's not many books that will give you 20 different opinions from 20 different people with varied tastes. The price is right as well Search the threads and you'd be surprised what you can find. There is a search option above the threads.Guitarist said:Anybody know of any good books to read for the beginner. something that tells you of what to look for basically when buying and finding your taste
I've seen it on ebay a couple of times. Scuttlebutt's saying MRN will have a second edition out soon.The Rev said:I have come up empty on MRN, too. I know this is an old thread, but just in case someone checks in, I am open to any advice on how to pick up this book.
I'm with you on that one punch. I also find Rudman's to be the closest to my tastebuds and have learned a lot by reading him AND reading between the lines. Also true, what he thought was poor quality, I also found not to my liking.punch said:I also owe a great debt to "Rudman's Complete Guide to Cigars" by Theo Rudman. While my 1997 edition is rather out of date, it still contains a lot of useful information. My tastebuds must be a lot like Rudman's since I have found the cigars that he considers good to also be pleasing to me. I also tend not to like the one's that he seems to think poorly of. So, in that respect, TR has been a far more useful guide when purchasing "blind" than CA, or even this forum for that matter.
