This is a true and amazing story about a truly amazing man, Joe Greenstein aka "The Mighty Atom", a strongman of the highest caliber.
Very well-written and highly entertaining, this book details the amazing, miraculous accomplishments of the Mighty Atom (not least of which includes holding back an airplane with his HAIR alone!). But it goes far beyond just listing his strongman feats - it's a truly interesting, in-depth look at a fascinating man and his hardships and successes in life as a vaudeville showman, father to ten children, devoted husband, spiritual seeker, and friend of mankind.
I highly recommend this book for kids, adults, everyone! It's such a great, great book. Full of inspiration and wonder.
The Mighty Atom was the Harry Houdini of strongmanship.
Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in (meta)physical culture, martial arts, Vaudeville, the American Jewish experience, natural health and healing, etc., etc....
