Do you have what it takes to be the Dark Knight? With Becoming Batman, you might soon be able to defend your very own Gotham City from a wide assortment of villains.
Chances are pretty good you weren’t rocketed to Earth when your planet exploded, and Amazon Island probably isn’t your birthplace. It’s probably safe to assume an alien didn’t give you an emerald ring that can bring your imagination to life.
But you can still be a superhero, right? After all, Batman is just some guy who trained hard, transforming himself into the guardian of Gotham with nothing but sheer determination.
This book, written by neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist E. Paul Zehr, discusses the physical training needed to take on the mantle of the Bat, dealing with things such as how hard and fast a real-life Batman could punch and kick, how many adversaries a single person could safely handle, and even how much food the Dark Knight would need to consume to maintain his crime-fighting mission.
Even if you have no desire to pummel bad guys every night, it could be fun to see exactly what’s needed to become Batman.
Becoming Batman is available for $15.25 at Amazon.com.
