Hi,



I posted a comment last week which hasn't appeared.

Could you let me know if there's a reason for this.

Thanks,



Brian

I had a transplant a year ago exactly, at the Farjo Clinic in Manchester. And I've had a great result.

But during the process I began to rewind on how diffcult it had been to find a reputable clinic and a surgeon I could trust with my future hair.

I realised that it had been a nightmare, trying to separate the genuine from the phoneys, the trustworthy from the opportunists.

And I realised that embarking upon hair transplant surgery is one of the scariest processes a man will ever go through.

So as a journalist, I decided to write a book based on my entire hair experience.

Now, Diary of a Hair Transplant takes readers on a journey of what it's like to have new hair - or rather old hair moved around on your head, like Pickford's but with follicles.

It explains the entire process, from first arriving at the hair clinic to the technique used by the surgeon. And during the journey the book flashes back in time to reveal the intimate detail of my hair life, coming to terms with the very idea of baldness.

The book features the many hair solutions I've tried, the futile attempts to cause hair to sprout and my research into baldness through the ages, including a wry understanding of how those with hair love to mock those less well coverered.

And I reveal the reaction I had when it was discovered I'd had a transplant.

'Where does the hair come from? Is it your leg?'

'Will it grow?'

'Can it still fall out?'

'How much does it cost?'

'Don't you think it's really vain to have a hair transplant?'

'Aren't you afraid you'll end up like Elton? Will it really work.'

Hi Brian, thanks for the post, although your URL didn't work even when I exchanged the comma after www with a full stop. Any ideas?

No need to read about it on the Internet, Brian was chatting about his book on Radio 4 today! Well I never. :)

Well, you can't actually read it on the internet - just an excerpt.

And the joy of having an actual book is to be able to absorb all the detail, empathise with the entire hair experience and hopefully laugh at the obsessed author.

Then you can always pass it on to your pal who's thinning - or use it to prop up that broken coffee table leg.

Brian,

Great to see that you had a good HT experience. I agree, it would be nice to see the results.

PS. I am not really sure of what to think of you Brian---My wife always gave me shit--"with the amount of time you spend on those stupid hair forums you could have written a book" Now someone had to do it.>C>::

1. A daily record, especially a personal record of events, experiences, and observations; a journal.
2. A book for use in keeping a personal record, as of experiences.

So, you came to "hairlossEXPERIENCES.com", where people come w/the sole intent of FREELY sharing their personal experiences of hair loss and ht's to SELL your book which does the same but is merely the experience of one man (?)...'''ss''

I guess you aren`t going to share your experience with the forum community.

I have actually started plans for a guide to HT's book.

I think it will be along the lines of HT's for Dummies =)

I am actually serious about this---I think it is time to put something out there that is actually truthful and helpful.

Cheers!

It's hard to make a comment on a book you haven't read, however, if it helps someone to research HT €™s, to increase their base knowledge of the subject, to choose a reputable clinic, and to understand the emotional roller coaster involved etc I €™m sure it would be a worthy resource to a "newbie".

Just joking Jason, you know we love you.

I know you're capable of writing an unbiased, helpful book if you set your mind to it.
