“A remarkable story. . . . It is to Mark Adams’s great credit that, in Mr. America, he has rescued from obscurity a man whose influence is still felt in this country more than a century after he muscled his way onto the national scene.” —Wall Street Journal “Hilarious. . . .

Few people in the history of bodybuilding have inspired more people than the legendary Charles Atlas. In this biography, We have attempted to reveal a little more of the intensely private man who became a literal living trademark. Although he was a popular and instantly recognisable public figure to five generations of Americans, the private Charles Atlas remains almost completely unknown outside the few surviving family members today. Indeed, as the numbers of people who actually knew him on a personal level continues to dwindle, it is now perhaps time to put some of those fond memories and recollections of Charles Atlas on paper before the very essence of the man himself becomes lost forever. Although Atlas passed away in December 1972 at the age of 80, countless articles have appeared in magazines and on Internet websites, a testament to his enduring influence and fame in the world of bodybuilding. Most have been inaccurate and even defamatory, but none have come close to providing a glimpse into the personality beyond the public figure from those memorable comic books ads. So here it is my tribute to Charles Atlas, a poor immigrant who fought his way from obscurity to reach the very pinnacle of world fame; a self-made man in every sense who pursued the American dream and lived it to the full while inspiring millions of young and not-so-young men around the world to be the very best they could be in life.

Manthropology is the first of its kind. Spanning continents and centuries, it is an in-depth look into the history and science of manliness. From speed and strength, to beauty and sex appeal, to bravado and wit, it examines how man today compares to his masculine ancestors. Peter McAllister set out to rebut the claim that man today is suffering from feminization and emasculation. He planned to use his skills as a paleoanthropologist and journalist to write a book demonstrating unequivocally that man today is a triumph---the result of a hard-fought evolutionary struggle toward greatness. As you will see, he failed. In nearly every category of manliness, modern man turned out to be not just matched, but bested, by his ancestors. Stung, McAllister embarked on a new mission. If his book couldn't be a testament to modern male achievement, he decided, it would be a record of his failures. Manthropology, then, is a globe-spanning tour of the science of masculinity. It kicks off in Ice Age France, where a biomechanical analysis demonstrates that La Ferrassie 2, a Neanderthal woman discovered in the early 1900s, would cream 2004 World Arm Wrestling Federation champion Alexey Voyevoda in an arm wrestle. Then it moves on to medieval Serbia, showing how Slavic guslar poets (who were famously able to repeat a two thousand-line verse after just one hearing) would have destroyed Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, in a battle rap. Finally, it takes the reader to the steaming jungles of modern equatorial Africa, where Aka Pygmy men are such super-dads, they even grow breasts to suckle their children. Now, that's commitment. For modern man, the results of these investigations aren't always pretty. But in its look at the history of men, Manthropology is unfailingly smart, informative, surprising, and entertaining.
