    DescriptionApproximately 10 million Americans smoke cigars today, while cigar bars are popping everywhere. This book features a run-down of cigar terms, sizes and shapes and teaches readers how to clip, light, and smoke a cigar and even how to deal with an uneven burning cigar how to care for cigars, judge a good cigar, use tobacconists to help in their selections, and match drinks and meals with cigars. It also offers concise guidelines on how cigars are rated today, a run-down of the popular brands, and an overview of the new labels appearing on the market. Chapters cover the history of cigar tobacco, and famous real life and fictional smokers. Also includes a special section on cigars and the opposite sex. Tad Gage was a pioneer in the efforts that initiated today's consumer love affair with cigars. He served as editor and publisher of The Compleat Smoker, this country's first four-color quarterly magazine on cigars, pipes, tobacco, and spirits that debuted in 1990. He has authored numerous articles on cigars and serves on the executive committee for Chicagoland Pipe Collector's Club, which annually hosts the largest pipe, cigar, and tobacco convention in the U.S. Mr. Gage lives in Chicago.
