MBR: Reviewer's Bookwatch, March 2007
"The Dirty Secret Of Nail Salons is a
chilling indictment of health code violations
that are all too frequent in nail salons,
and their catastrophic consequences - which
are sometimes lethal. Wherever bacterial
organisms and instruments that can draw
blood are found, therein lies danger. Chapters
discuss how the reader can protect himself
or herself from unsanitary nail salons or
nail technicians, and common foot and nail
care products to avoid. However, Death By
Pedicure also discusses the positive benefits
of manicures and pedicures, including the
possibility that nail technicians can detect
and refer foot problems before they turn
serious. A serious-minded, highly readable
discussion accessible to lay readers and
recommended for anyone with ties to the
nail care industry, whether as a client,
an employee, or through business connections."

Speaking as a Licensed Nail Specialist,
I think it is a very important part of my
job to educate every person who walks through
my salon door on safe salon practices. Dr
Spaldings's book, Death By Pedicure
is not only a great tool for Nail Professionals,
but also an excellent source of information to
help consumers be aware of what they
need to know before they set foot into another
pedicure bath. I highly recommend
this book to anyone who visits a salon for
any nail services, you will see everything
in a new light. Thank you Dr. Spalding,
for helping to put this important information
into even more manicured hands.
