I recently purchased this book on a whim. I was looking through Amazon and the cover immediately caught my eye (understandably). I sampled the first chapter of the book before purchasing it and found it very interesting so I HAD to buy it! What I love about this book is the characteristics of it. For starters, it is short read. There is no filler material throughout it. Everything is genuinely complimentary to the book which made reading it a delight.
The book is split up into 7 chapters and each one is interesting. You will learn the statistics of how bow ties are becoming more popular throughout society, how to properly tie a bowtie, and even reliable resources to purchase bow ties!! There are crisp clear pictures throughout the book that draw you into the whole bow tie experience. This was honestly one of the coolest books I have read. Nobody takes the time to focus on the smaller things in life (no pun intended) and it is such a breath of fresh air when an author takes the time to address something that many people don't know much about. Mark's writing was clear and to the point. There were no grammatical errors (I am a grammar freak! LOL) and the transitions were very smooth throughout the chapters.
All in all, this was an awesome short read that will make you more knowledgeable about a historic fashion trend. I believe this book would be particularly important to people who work in a high end retail setting or for someone interested or studying in fashion. I have now become more aware of men wearing bow ties out as well. Overall, an amazingly written short read that will educate you in a fun way. 10 stars!!
