    The sixth edition of the complete beginner's guide to traditional wetshaving---brush, shaving cream or soap, and safety razor with double-edged blade---is a major update of the previous edition: a third larger, with a new chapter, new sections, and covers new aspects of shaving such as DIY products and guidelines on collecting. Reviews of new razors and other shaving products are included, and the appendix now includes well over 100 on-line vendors as well as forums and reference sites. The book provides excellent guidance for beginners putting together their first shaving kit and discusses tradeoff considerations in the initial purchases. Traditional shaving is enjoyable and thrifty: double-edged blades are as low as 7¢ each---a year's worth of shaves for $3.50---compared to the same amount spent for one single disposable multiblade cartridge. The recommended beginner razor, one of the Edwin Jagger DE8x series, will last a lifetime and uses a recently designed head that easily provides a comfortable shave using techniques described in the book. The multiblade cartridge's tug-and-cut action often results in skin irritation, razor bumps, in-grown hairs, and razor burn---thus all the "protective" shaving preparations and "soothing and healing" aftershaves now offered. Most men with these skin problems decide that they have "sensitive skin," never realizing that the problem is their daily use of a multiblade cartridge whose its tug-and-cut action, made even worse by the shaver pressing hard to try to extend the life of the (expensive) cartridge. The book also includes a chapter on shaving and skin problems, including information on how DE shaving can help those who have acne as well as how to cure and prevent razor bumps and in-grown whiskers. The book is a complete instruction manual and guide in itself, but it also includes links to a host of resources on the Web to complement the book. Included with the book is a comprehensive list of on-line shaving vendors and other sources of equipment and supplies for everything you need to get started. It's a perfect gift for Father's Day, Valentine's Day, birthdays, graduations, and bar mitzvahs---and a particularly apt gift for men who shave daily but when asked whether they actually enjoy shaving answer, "No. I hate it." Give them this book so that they can look forward eagerly to their next shave---not an exaggeration. Men who have just started DE shaving frequently write that they wish they could shave more than once a day and look for eagerly to the next shave.
