Abstract:

"Humorist and comedy television writer Julius Sharpe woke up on 9/11 to his own personal disaster: his hair was falling out. So You're Going Bald is his hilarious odyssey--a tale filled with despair, horror, acceptance, and humor that everyone can relate to, whether you're nineteen or approaching ninety--or are simply bald-curious. As Julius tells it, going bald is for-real traumatic. Losing his hair preoccupied his days and kept him up Googling every night for five straight years. He suffered in private, but now he's making it his mission that no cue ball will live alone with the agony of hair loss ever again. Sharpe examines what it means to be hairless up top, and walks you through how to look at yourself in the mirror and not want to die. He outlines the three stages of baldness (anger, more anger, even more anger), and volunteers himself as a guinea pig, testing laser helmets, plugs, and toupees. So You're Going Bald is one-part tough love and one-part inspiration... the same way that Fran Drescher's Cancer Schmancer inspired a cure for schmancer." --Publisher's website.
