Complete Skin and Hair Care Program for the Active Man

Joe Saffon, Author, Charles Fancisco, Author, Charles Francisco, Photographer New Win Publishing $12.95 (156p) ISBN 978-0-8329-0420-2
This none-too-original no-frills guide is directed toward men who would hate to think themselves vain, yet crave simple, effective tips for grooming and health. Saffon goes too far in trying to assure readers they're not sissies for wanting to correct ""embarrassing'' problems and makes frequent references to his ``macho'' good-grooming advice. What follows are breezy discussions of skin types and care, hair (what shampoos to use, how to curb balding) and whether plastic surgery is a masculine option (it is). If the reader can ignore the boisterous, locker-room tone that pervades the writing, he may find some valid points within. It's just a question of whether the active man has time for such reading between the lines. Saffon (The 15-Minute-A-Day Natural Face Lift, etc.) is a beauty consultant; Francisco is the author of The Radio City Music Hall, etc. Illustrations not seen by PW.
