man, we do a bunch of crazy stuff to ourselves…

This book talks about the history of hair removal and is very interesting. Points I found most interesting were how abundance or hair, or absence of hair is linked to superiority or inferiority of cultures. Throughout history amounts of hair or hair growth patterns have been linked to insanity, gender confusion and crime.

Then there are all the different methods that people have used to rid themselves of unwanted hair. Many seem so insane now, that it’s hard to believe people would do that to themselves. The amount of money spent on this industry is staggering.

The book is very scientific, parts were a little hard to read, or too technical. Very interesting, but dry.
