The man taking the readers on this aero-dynamically efficient ride is Author David Stern; a fully actualized bald man. Stern has gone through all five stages of grieving for his hair, and brings that wisdom to the pages of this book. The Balding Handbook takes the reader beyond those embarrassing denial moments (hats, combovers, plugs, pieces), keeps him out of jail during that angry second stage, helps construct a perfect offer to God while he bargains for his hair back, comforts him through the depths of balding depression, and brings the reader into the light. Of course, he'll need sunscreen when he gets there, but the few extra bucks shelled out to the Hawaiian Tropic® people is a trifle when you consider the incredible life that awaits him after reading this book.

David has also taken the opportunity to ask the Obama Administration to right a wrong that has plagued this country for hundreds of years. Stern has formally petitioned to have the incredibly insensitive name of our nation's symbol (the bald eagle) changed to the "Follicly Challenged Eagle". The petition states...."The follicly-challenged eagle is a majestic symbol of our national strength and might, and we as a nation should never rub its beak in its one tiny shortcoming. National symbols have feelings too. Just because they soar through the sky doesn't mean they aren't a little sensitive. If we as a nation begin to moderate our insensitive language towards our follicly challenged flying buddies, maybe, just maybe, the millions of follicly-challenged citizens of this great nation will also finally be able to (symbolically) soar above the clouds."

The Balding Handbook has garnered rave reviews from the likes of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame DJ John Records Landecker who says "Finally a book for America's Most Overlooked Minority! We are balding, hear us roar, in numbers too big to ignore." Landecker's memoir ("Records Truly is My Middle Name"), which chronicles his legendary 40-plus-year radio career in Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto and several other cities, will be coming out via Eckhartz Press on March 28, 2013.
