Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You know who you are: you're one of the one billion adults who takes pleasure in smoking cigarettes. This one-of-a-kind treasure trove of memories, meditations, fascinating facts, tantalizing trivia, wit, and wisdom about smoking will only enhance the unparalleled pleasure of lighting up!

Did you know: Nearly 15 billion cigarettes are sold worldwide daily—about 10 million cigarettes every minute. . . . A single tablespoon of tobacco seeds can sow six acres of land. . . . Lucky Strike was originally the name of a chewing tobacco sold during the Gold Rush?

Gone are the days of TV tobacco ads ("Winston Tastes Good Like a Cigarette Should!"). Airplane and movie theater smoking sections and smoking cars on railroad trains are things of the halcyon past. But smoking carries on! The Joys of Smoking Cigarettes enables confirmed and unbowed tobacco enthusiasts to revel in their satisfaction, with classic advertisements, smoking celeb photographs, drawings, and fascinating observations on:

  • The psychotherapeutic effect of cigarette as timepiece ("One more smoke, and then I'll pay the utilities bill.")
  • The new brands and the old favorites
  • Being a smoker in a nonsmoking world
  • The classic smoker profile: the Marlboro Man, the American Spirit American, Joe Camel, the Gauloises Gal

And Much More!

They may bar you from restaurants. They may force you out into the cold, cold streets. But they will never rob you of . . . the joys of smoking cigarettes!

Synopsis:

The Joys of Smoking Cigarettes outlines the curious delight that the smoker gets from his or her habit. It provides fascinating facts and fancies about tobacco and smoking today as well as insight into the psyche of the smoker. It delves into the etiquette and the art of smoking, detailing the day–to–day minutiae that make this dirty addiction so cleanly enjoyable.

A lot has changed since this book was originally published in 1983. Gone are the days of smoking ads on TV, smoking in the office, and even smoking in bars! Updated for the 21st century, this mirthful little handbook includes meditations, analysis, and trivia on smoking. For instance:

•The Psychotherapeutic effect of the cigarette as a little timepiece. "I'll have a cigarette then pay the the mortgage bill."

•Smoking in a non–smokers world––When a smoker meets a fellow smoker be it in the smoking kiosk in the Denver airport or walking down the street, a bond is established. Them against us!

•New brands and smoker profiles: The American Spirit smoker, the Camel Man, The Galois Gal

•And much more!

Illustrated with black and white photos, line drawings, and classic advertisements throughout, this classic digest of the world's favorite bad habit is a healthy treat for the tobacco enthusiast or a great gift for that special puffer in your life.
