Chris Salgardo, the charismatic president of cult-favorite skin-care line Kiehl's, delivers the definitive guide to grooming every man needs—and was afraid to ask for.

     Manmade is the first grooming and skin-care guide created with a 21st-century man in mind. Rather than dispense one-size-fits-all advice, style icon and Kiehl's prez Chris Salgardo tailors his guidance to a man's lifestyle and interest level, devoting chapters to the specific grooming needs of the polished gentleman; the extreme sports enthusiast; the bad boy/rebel; the artistic renaissance man; and the DIY hipster. From battling the effects of aging to hair concerns--whether too much or not enough--Chris offers insiders' secrets for looking impeccably (but not obviously) groomed.
