From the Publisher"I met Bryan in 2002 when he was a young phone screener for Loveline. At the time, he had a few more hairs and a lot more pounds, but he always had confidence. Bryan is smart and knows it. And wants you to know it. As you read this book you’ll see just how sharp and clever he is."
“Shrinkage rewards the reader with a courageous, honest journey that will be familiar to those struggling with or caring for someone with cancer. Bald Bryan shows us that because he never, ever gives up, the darkest moments can yield great meaning and moments of clarity. This is a must read for anyone who feels alone dealing with serious illness. Oh hell, this is a must read for anyone with a pulse.”
—Dr. Drew Pinsky, Loveline and Dr. Drew on Call
“Bald Bryan puts the can in cancer and the bone in boner!”
—Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Kimmel Live!
