40 Upsides of Being Bald
Some think that being bald is a curse, a bad twist from destiny, a fatal and unavoidable genetic disorder, something that has to be hidden with faulty, complicated, painful and inefficient tricks.
This book is dedicated to all the bald people in the world that know how to enjoy a hairless head. It is also dedicated for those that haven ́t given up yet to be bald and are still trying shampoos, ointments, injections, and magical formulations; to those who use wigs, hairpieces, craneal paints, doll hair, and all sorts of artificial contraptions. Even also to those guys that comb their hair like Oaxaca cheese to cover the bald areas, delivering a shameful and unsuccessful illusion of hair.
This book offers 40 very interesting reasons why being bald can be a great adventure in life. Each one of this Upsides of Being Bald was illustrated by one of the best 40 illustrators of Mexico and Spain.
40 Upsides of Being Bald is a tribute for all baldies that, with great bravery and conviction, rise their shiny heads, defying the sun, the cold and the astonished look of little children.
My bald friend, this is your book.
