From the Author
Are redheads cool or what? It's taken over ten years of research to find the facts and information that I present in this book - information that defines the redhead culture - without really identifying it. I didn't want to write a book that just listed names of redhead celebrities and famous people, although there are names of hundreds in the book. More interesting to me were the surveys and studies that show how redheads are perceived by others, and how they perceive themselves. I was also fascinated to find all the strange historical data concerning redheads, with contradicting folklore and fables. I'm proud to be a redhead myself, and I invite every redhead and redhead admirer to get The Redhead Encyclopedia to discover for themselves a truckload of neat information and little-known secrets about the flame-haired.

To both the born-reds and the overly-inquisitive out there: It's Not Your Business !!!!
It's also amusing, when you consider that we live in a world where most people make regular use of antibiotics, incandescent lighting, the internet, cable telecommunications, internal combustion, etc., none of which are `natural.' Yet, when it comes to hair, suddenly everyone is agog to know if it's genuine or not. What hypocrisy.
Red hair is red hair is red hair. If someone chooses to become red, there you are. Stand in awe and admiration of the time and effort it takes to maintain a flattering copper, if it doesn't grow out of one's head that way. A redhead could just as easily choose to go brunette (and some do, as I know older redheads often go a very unflattering shade of Weak Ginger as their white hair comes in), yet I doubt the `born' brunettes out there (who aren't nearly as insecure, seemingly) give a hoot.
Kudos to Mr. Douglas for simply recognizing that, whether it's by choice or by birth, red hair is red hair.
