    Less comicbook fun, more science class.

    Being a comicbook fan and in the medical field, I was excited to read this book. In my eye, it is a boring, dull read. Now, this would be great if you are taking a biology class because the detail to which the author goes into us obnoxius. The author will throw the word Batman in from time to time but he could easily be talking about any high performance athlete like Micheal Phelps or Bruce Lee. There are the comicbook refrences from time to time to make a loose connection between Batman and his yawn fest babble about cellular structure and the role it plays in muscle formation. I'll give it a 2.5 because the author does know what he is talking about. But I've taken Micro biology before and it was boring then...shame on you to drag Batman into it.

    Very entertaining and informative!

    I'm a huge fan of Batman, and I've always wondered if being him was possible. This book is a great blend of entertainment and information. Zehr is a scientist and a martial artist with deep backgrounds in both. In addition, he's an ardent fan of Batman and it shows. He supports physiology with anecdotes and Batman history.

    Wow

    This might actually work (unlike some of my other crazy ideasn that almost always turn against me) only i would probably be a 14 year old ninja living in a secret lair in the sewer with three other bros and a rat sensei and being relentlessly pursued by an evil guy who just so happens to be your sensei's old archnemesis a race of alien robots trying to get back their own dimension and a giant mutant dog ans fish. Sound familiar?
    Post back if you know what it is.

    At last!

    Whenever people think of Batman it's always the gadgets and vehicles that come to mind. But there was so much more that Bruce Wayne had to do to mentally and physically to become the Dark Knight, as this book shows.

    Avid Batman Fan

    I have followed the caped crusader since before his 1989 movie debut and never looked back. The reason I have come to fancy batman is because of the probability of realism that the character invokes. This book demonstrates what it would take to make the journey from man to super hero.
