This is the book that got me interested in pipes. We were on a family vacation in British Columbia to see a relative's wedding, and my dad found this book at a bookstore. Knowing I liked smoking cigars, he offered to buy it for me. I read it on the way home and went and bought a pipe as soon as we got back in town. That was in 2009, and I've been smoking a pipe ever since. Has anyone else read this book? It's got a beautiful chapter on meerschaums.
