Abstract
This chapter reports a list of international articles and books in which I found many valuable suggestions and help for writing this book. All the arguments are briefly presented and commented on in the same order of appearance as in the previous chapters. The reader is strongly recommended to select from this list to take a closer look at facial analysis or to study other related arguments, which are treated marginally in this book.

I want to express my personal gratitude to these authors, many of whom are international leaders in their fields. They were and still are an immense fount of knowledge and source of inspiration for me.

15.1 Errors in Patient Selection

Errors occur when a patient is too interested in a small detail of his face and cannot see the entire picture, when a woman decides to rejuvenate herself surgically to satisfy her husband’s request, when a boy wants Brad Pitt’s nose, etc.
Every moment during the initial consultation and the successive preoperative meetings with a patient is a perfect occasion to ask yourself the two questions cited by Rollin K. Daniel: “Will the planned surgery make a significant improvement in this patient?” and “Do I want this person in my practice?” If the answer is no to either question, he suggests not doing their surgery.

Further information on errors in patient selection is also available in Chap. 3 of the book by M. Eugene Tardy and J. Regan Thomas.
