Bald! Summary


Bald!: From Hairless Heroes to Comic Combovers by Kevin Baldwin

There are some people who never have bad hair days. Eggheads, skinheads, slapheads - "Bald" explores in depth the world of those whose heads are covered more by air than hair. A shining light in the field, Kevin Baldwin (his real name) examines the cultural, psychological and sociological history of baldness. From its suggested causes such as an excess of virility, cycling or cerebral activity, to supposed miracle cures - rubbing in bat milk or curry, to the more extreme measure of castration - "Bald" takes us on a marvellously entertaining tour through this far from barren subject. And no, the pages of the book aren't susceptible to falling out.
