Synopsis

Scientists have concluded that 90 percent of men shave at least once a day. That works out at a colossal twenty thousand shaves, or five months in front of the mirror, in a lifetime. Yet how many men have ever been given any advice or shown how best to shave? Here to fill that gaping hole is an indispensable guide to the ultimate shave. Shaving shouldn't be a chore, but a pleasure, and Sharp Practice will tell you how.



Rich in the (sometimes strange) history of shaving, full of anecdotes and packed with tips and advice, Sharp Practice will revolutionize your morning ritual. Here you will find advice on avoiding common mistakes, preventing rashes and cuts, what aftershave to use and how to handle a cut-throat razor, as well as everyday tips and the ultimate luxury shave. You will also learn about Che Guevara's beard, Ivan the Terrible's idea of fun, Alexander the Great and the severed head, and how cavemen invented the razor.



Super-stylish, funny and practical, this is a must-have for all well-groomed men everywhere, and the perfect present for any young man beginning to shave for the first time.

Anders Larsen was born in Beirut, of Danish-Irish parentage. He spent his early years travelling, then got stuck in the habit and just carried on. He has taught English in Abu Dhabi and Mexico, played volleyball for Ireland, and has had jobs ranging from lavatory cleaner in New York to demolition worker in Munich. But he is not - nor has ever been - a barber. He currently lives in Ireland with his family, where he practises karate and wishes it didn't rain so much.
