    Eating and sleeping are the only activities that
    should be allowed to interrupt a man s enjoyment
    of his cigar.

    To ignite a cigar to watch the glossy tobacco
    transmute into silvery ash and blue smoke and
    to savor its complex and lingering flavors is
    to practice a ritual that has been performed
    for centuries by kings and courtesans, prime
    ministers and presidents, authors and artists.
    Over the course of centuries, the cigar has
    become a symbol of leisure, rite of passage, and
    celebratory gesture. All of these themes, as well
    as significant moments in its history are explored
    with great affection and energy in this tasteful
    and entertaining volume on a beloved pastime.
