In a collection of essays drawn from daily life, Dr. Alan Heath fills his first book with a hilarious account of life seen through the eyes of a dentist who never grew up.

What’s Wrong with that Man’s Head takes us inside the mind of Dr. Heath as he shares the stories of his First Communion, taken at the insistence of his Mother-in-law (Body of Christ), and of an ill-advised ride in a rodeo (Mid-life Rodeo). He struggles with the challenges of parenting as he tells of losing a fifty-dollar bet to his five-year-old son (Name that Tune), and debates the legend of Santa Claus (Yes, Virginia). He’ll walk you through the process of his first colonoscopy (An In and Out Procedure), and you’ll smile through your tears as he tells the bittersweet tale of his Mother-in-law’s final moments in Last Words.

His stories lead us on a fifty-year journey, and at the end, you may still wonder, “What’s wrong with that man’s head?”
