In my view, this book is the headwear bible. Stunningly up to date, I eagerly await my new copy each year. It's great to have such an independent voice reporting on the hat world.

Great book! I received my copy a month ago and I am just finishing it. I have read it cover to cover. I was really impressed by its high quality and comprehensive insight! I have to admit - this may be the most thorough compilation of headwear info and sources that I have ever seen! You did a wonderful job researching the topics and putting it together in a very professional manner. Any chance you can put out two editions a year?

Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate receiving the new Hat Life book very much and think you did an excellent job. It motivated me to redo my website and I created a social network for my company. Love your newsletter too!

I love all the great pictures and witty insight on upcoming trends. It seems like the book is getting bigger which is the opposite of most magazines I receive that seem to be shrinking. Keep up the great job.

Every time I need a new vendor or resource, I grab for my Hat Life book. Since I'm getting a little more computer savvy, I have started using the online directory too which I love!
