Welcome to a light-hearted, affectionate look at a classic American place: the neighborhood barbershop. Through entertaining photos text, author Mic Hunter explores this fondly-remembered world of familiar smells, strewn hair clippings, and good conversation - a place of being just a regular guy. For over a decade, Hunter, a widely-published psychologist, has pursued a commitment to document the life of small, gradually-disappearing traditional barbershops around the country. The photos celebrate the wonders of ordinary places. The stories recall the soothing snip of scissors, the hum of the clippers, the idle talk and banter - all the pleasures of a visit to the neighborly barber.
