"Hole in the Head: A Life Revealed" from Christian Faith Publishing author Wilbert Smith, PhD, is an utterly moving biography about a man named Vertus Hardiman, who as a five-year-old had survived a malicious, unethical medical experiment conducted on elementary school children in the '20s. The experiment left him with hideous scars he must hide under hats and wigs the rest of his life--and yet, Smith shows how Vertus continues to inspire and uplift all who know him by his determination, positivity, and kindness.

MEADVILLE, Pa., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Hole in the Head: A Life Revealed": a striking biography of the strength and beauty of one man's will. "Hole in the Head: A Life Revealed" is the creation of published author Wilbert Smith, an award-winning filmmaker and author who served as a member of California's Community Colleges Board of Governors.

Smith shares his impression of Vertus at their first meeting, "There was something strange about Vertus. It wasn't his height, nor was it strange that he looked years younger than his actual age of sixty-four. What I found most odd had everything to do with his hairstyle. He wore a wig that was coal black. It covered his head from hairline to hairline. The style reminded me of an old-fashioned grease slicked shiny wig worn by an Elvis Presley impersonator. I was amused, at first. Though Vertus was an older man, the wig didn't house a single strand of gray hair. There was no question about whether or not Vertus wore a wig. It was a 100-percent certainty. But I came to regret my early criticism when I uncovered the truth about this specific wig."

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Wilbert Smith's new book is an absorbing true story both uplifting and horrifying-but rather than write an indictment against inhumane government-sanctioned experiments on children, Smith instead offers a profoundly inspiring portrait of a man whose life philosophy allows him to bear the harshest scars of life with dignity, while living life on his terms.

Vertus Hardiman is a man worth knowing, and in this beautiful, moving biography, Dr. Smith allows readers to be touched by his engaging spirit.
