Publisher Comments:

Millions of Americans have come to rely on the Complete Idiot's Guide series for practical, basic information on everything from preparing an income tax return to entertaining weekend guests. The witty, conversational style and the inviting, browsable format take the intimidation factor out of learning new skills. This season the popular series — which has featured such top sellers as The Complete Idiot's Guide to Dating and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street — has been expanded to include 27 new tides. As always, each book includes:

-- Idiot-proof steps for mastering specific skills

-- An easy-to-use design, including fun sidebars and witty cartoons

-- Warnings, tips, definitions, and advice from leading authorities

-- The popular Least You Need To Know feature at the back of each chapter

Join the nation's hottest trend

Approximately 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.

--New handy 6 X 9 format
