Phantom Hair Syndrome: A Consumer's Guide by the Editors of Bald

Do you still comb your bald spot? Do you still feel the wind blowing your hair that has not been there for years? Surprised every time you see your reflection? Avoiding mirrors? Maybe you should read Phantom Hair Syndrome: A Consumer's Guide by the Editors of Bald.

This handy guide starts with a history of hair loss among the ancient Egyptians and Greeks with quotes from Socrates via Plato about fate and the loss of locks. Chapters advising against comb-overs, toupees, and hair transplants follow. The third section of the book rates soft brushes that will not scratch the unprotected scalp. In the appendix is a directory of Bald is Beautiful support groups.

Of course, bald people are not the only ones to suffer from phantom hair loss. People who suddenly get short hair cuts suffer, too. Military libraries should stock extra copies.
