O'Tar T. Norwood, MD Creator of the Norwood Scale for measuring male pattern baldness As a consumer advocate, Spencer Kobren has been able to grasp and explain the complexities of hair loss and its treatment. Every balding man should read this book.
About the Author
Spencer David Kobren is the country's most prominent and effective hair loss consumer/patient advocate, and the Founder and Director of the American Hair Loss Association. He is also host of "The Bald Truth," his nationally syndicated weekly radio program; a feature columnist on three of the most respected hair-loss web sites, including regrowth.com; and has his own Web site: thebaldtruth.com. After years of researching hair loss and finally overcoming the early stages of his own male pattern baldness, which began at age twenty-two, he has dedicated himself to helping others prevent and treat hair loss. As a consumer advocate, he consults on issues of patient and consumer rights in this unregulated industry. Kobren and his work are the focus of the Discovery Channel documentary also titled The Bald Truth and have been featured in articles in many publications, including GQ, The Wall Street Journal, Men's Health, and The New York Times. He lives in New York City.

I've taken the step of surgery and now 2+ years later I'm happy every day I comb my hair, my real hair. My doctor recommended this book (he's mentioned in it, Shapiro). Don't let the details of surgery scare you, it's nothing and this book shows you how simple (but time consuming) it is.
The best part is that this book gives you the reader hope, and shows that there is a way to slow hair loss.
The irony is that Kobren claims to be a debunker and "consumer advocate", and this book is supposed to be his vehicle. To an experienced eye, it just looks like he is joining the rush to make money from male insecurities about hair loss.
The answers to male pattern baldness will come, eventually, but they won't be found in this book. Save your money, do your own research, talk to a dermatologist, take care of your health (good advice anyway), and you'll be further ahead than you will be after reading this.
Having had my hair successfully restored by one of the world's finest hair transplant surgeons, Dr. Ron Shapiro, I found the author's critique of the state of hair transplantation to be excellent.
With todays advances, if a person chooses wisely, they have an excellent chance at restoring their hair. If they choose poorly, a person may spend a good deal of money with traumatic consequences.
"The Bald Truth" offers THE best guidance for navigating through all these hair restoration options. The first dollar anyone should spend on hair resoration should be towards buying this book! - Pat "The Recovering Bald Guy"
