He has also been recognized as a “Top Doc” by numerous organizations including Castle Connolly, U.S News & World Report, and Consumers’ CHECKBOOK guides.

But it is in his role as an adjunct professor at DePaul University – where he teaches a wildly popular undergraduate course, The Science of Beauty and Attraction and Its Impact on Culture and Business – upon which this book is based.
