The second edition of “The Tobacconist Handbook” from Jorge Armenteros, the founder of Tobacconist University, has officially been released.
This second edition is a hardcover that checks in at 264 pages and features a number of updates from the original version, which was published in August 2009, including improved photos and updated content.
The book is billed as a way for lovers of luxury tobacco to enhance both their knowledge and appreciation of cigars, pipe tobacco, and beyond. The book includes sections on learning the different types of tobacco, cutting and lighting a cigar, setting up a humidor and other essential information, while new sections address vapes, hookahs, and more, with commentary and analysis about what the future holds. While the title might suggest it is geared towards retailers, it is designed to be very approachable for consumers as well.
List price is $22.99 for the hardcover version and $14.99 for the eBook version. It is published by Skyhorse Publishing.
