Finally a book that portrays male beauty ideals and practices. You can read this as a cultural analyses, or entertainment. It is divided by micro chapters, easy to read and digest. It goes through historical icons and topoi, wrapping the readers into a wide range of topics.

One thing that I wish was different is the quality of the actual book. It could have easily been a coffee table book if the quality of the paper and aesthetics of the illustrations were higher. The cover is also ok, but not spectacular. This is a lesson for anyone who is thinking publishing a book, and what differentiates a fun read from a brillinat one.

That said, I am glad to have been able to read this book and will gladly recommend it to other, both for people who want to learn about beauty ideals over time, and those who wish to read something light, fun, and easy with a bit of study value in it.
