I just finished reading this unusual book by Doug Crandell. Naturally,I picked it due to the bizarre title. Ok, so I judged the book by it's cover. Won't be the last time!
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. It teaches a valuable lesson about focusing on the more important things in life. The main character is consumed with his lack of hair, while his brother who has a traumatic brain injury goes happily on with his own life, marrying and having children. All the while his brother (who is follically challenged) spirals down a path to self-destruction. It is not until the end of the book that he comes to terms with what really matters in life.
My mind naturally gravitates towards ruminating about minutae, so this book provided a much-needed wake up call. Hopefully I have not revealed too much (about me or the book!). You will not be disappointed.
