The book explains “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” options to hair loss.
According to Dr. Ken Washenik, Bosley Hair Restoration Medical Director,
"Hair loss is not life threatening. It's life changing!"
A powerful statement summarizes the impact hair loss has on a woman’s self-image,
"Losing your hair is like losing a part of your soul!"
Although baldness is not funny to those experiencing a vanishing hairline, equally, self-esteem diminishes as does one’s hair. Fact: 50% of men and 40% of women experience this annoying, debilitating condition in their lifetime. The experience can lead to a frantic search for answers and mistaken choices can result in lasting disappointment.
The book "pulls back the curtain" on unscrupulous companies that intentionally mislead the public. It exposes the unattractive underbelly of businesses that prey on the hair loss sufferer's insecurities and desperation for a “fix.”
The Dossier zeros in on all popular hair treatment claims and dissects the pros and cons of each. Wigs and hairpieces...worn by celebrities, high-profile figures and everyday citizens are critiqued, as are elaborate hair styling techniques, such as the one implemented by the current US President to disguise his hair problem.
The real story about hair transplantation as a lifetime answer to thinning hair is revealed, as is the truth about the wealth of temporary treatments that never get to the “root of the problem.”
Unfortunately, the public is vulnerable to the relentless marketing of “miracle" products. Most of the information found in the media and online is intended to sell or promote a product or service, often with the implication these are permanent answers to thinning hair or baldness.
This exposé will dispel the misinformation that is widely disseminated and provide a message of optimism and a valid treatment strategy for hair loss sufferers.
The underlying message is, "There is no cure for baldness, only treatment." Millions of dollars are wasted each year on worthless products. Although this condition is overwhelmingly caused by a genetic predisposition to thinning and balding, the book offers hope and a roadmap to prevent further loss and to encourage growth.
Travel on a journey to discover how the choices of hair transplantation, drugs, topical treatments, camouflage products, light therapy and utilizing your own stem cells can work for you. Learn about the pros and cons as the author directs you to pursue a path to what he terms Hair Preservation.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
