Spencer David Kobren, also host of a radio show about baldness, author of another similar volume aimed at men (The Bald Truth, Pocket Books, 2000), and director of an informational Web site (thebaldtruth.com), is on a mission to provide hope to the afflicted by demystifing androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and alopecia due to other causes and evaluating potential remedies.
