Publisher's Summary

Stories of pipe smoking's greatest craftspeople intertwine with advice and commentary in these essays on the art of pipe smoking. While exploring pipe craftsmanship worldwide, this audiobook combines tales of the author's visits to Europe's most prestigious pipe makers with a look at pipe smoking's history and the hobby's most famous practitioners, including Albert Einstein, Norman Rockwell, and Mark Twain.

Interviews with Old World craftspeople provide insight into the delicate and personal craft of pipe making, and a treatise on pipe smoking's relaxing benefits intermingles with advice on how to smoke, buy, break in, clean, and use a pipe to cope with the frantic pace of the 21st century.

    Story
    "Excellent reading; incredible info."
    Where does In Search of Pipe Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This AND Still Searching For Pipe Dreams are the best audio books that I have purchased. You MUST purchase the Audio editions as well as the hard copy.


    What other book might you compare In Search of Pipe Dreams to and why?

    Still Searching for Pipe Dreams... Same style, the normal continuum.


    Have you listened to any of Rick Newcombe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They are both excellent and both are a "Must Buy"


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The dedication and passion that the author puts into these works, run throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    The hard copy books are a constant source for reference while at home; yes, I actually take notes and make cross-references!
    The Audio Editions are great while driving, reinforcing the info. learned from the hard copy.
    If you truly enjoy pipe smoking and already collect pipes, or intend to, there is no better way to become knowledgable.
    These are the "Bibles". Buy Them!!
