The writer keeps telling you that nothing will surely work, mentions side effects, and keeps doing so for chaaapters. Then, after he gets you, he starts telling you about how amazing a hair transplant is. A hair transplant is a solution that should only be considered when a person is completely bald. Anyone in their early stages should consider other stuff. If you are rich enough, then try a PRP, not a hair transplant!
Hair Loss & Replacement is no exception in this but it is a considerable cut above the rest. Firstly it is very up-to-date and contains a vast amount of information all exceedingly well organized in 7 sections containing 18 chapter,
I- Getting to Know your Hair,
II- The Root of Hair Loss,
III- Creative Techniques for Concealing Hair Loss
IV- Phamaceutical, Laser and Topical Therapies
V- Advanced Hair Loss Solutions (60 pages about hair transplantation)
VI- The Part of Tens (10 myths about hair loss, pros and cons for wigs, hair treatments and transplants)
VII- Appendices- this include a Glossary of scientific terms used in the book. In addition the reader is provided with the addresses of all the well known hair-loss websites and support organizations and many more. There is also an outstanding Index running to16 pages.
Throughout the book important points to remember are clearly marked with an icon in the margin, as are tips and warnings. The reader is even alerted by another icon to technical paragraphs that he can safely skip without losing the thread of the chapter.
Now a warning. Although this book is designed for those with little prior knowledge about hair, it is certainly not recommended for "dummies". It is a very well written and technical book, authored by two of the acknowledged "gurus" of our field, Bill Rassman and Bob Bernstein, The previous scientific writings of these two men are already at the top of any reading list on hair replacement surgery. Far from being a text for the "everyman" the book would be an ideal primer for any doctor wanting to know more about hair loss and its replacement, before committing many months to a specialized training course in hair replacement surgery.
Every aspect of hair growth, hair loss and hair replacement is covered concisely in this book in reasonably simple language and I could find few faults within the text. Perhaps even then, they were just minor differences of opinion between experts, rather than faults.
There is no attempt to "talk down" to the lay reader and in fact the only concession to the layman is that each of the 18 chapters is fairly well self-contained and if he only wants to know about, diseases that cause hair loss, hair transplantation or hairpieces, then he can be well informed in a self-contained section.
Summary. This is a really outstanding book for the beginner who has a considerable degree of education but no place for a true "dummy" to be browsing. Perhaps someone will do a 50-page comic-book version for these individuals who, judging by popular book sales and TV ratings, make up a considerable proportion of our population.
