Pressestimmen

"If you really want to become Batman, having a billion dollars in start-up funds and a subterranean lair is just the beginning. Dr. Zehr's thoroughly researched and thoughtfully imagined exploration into the real-life rigors of costumed crime-fighting shows just how DC Comics' Dark Knight -- the original self-made hero -- could realistically transform a mere human body into something no less than superhuman. Consider it required reading for anyone seriously contemplating donning cape and cowl." -- Scott Beatty, author of The Batman Handbook

"Zehr applies his specialised knowledge to quantify how an ordinary person could turn themselves into Batman." -- Flipside

"Zehr draws on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist and martial artist to question whether a mortal could ever become Batman." -- Publishers Weekly

"When I walk, every once in a while someone notices they can't hear my footsteps. Do you know why? Dr. E. Paul Zehr knows. I'm training to become Batman. Most of the population wouldn't understand this... but beneath and entwined in the soul of many men is a hero-in-the-making. Training for that moment that will, thankfully, never come. The moment when he must be a hero. The moment he trained for. They'll never hear me coming. In this book Dr. Zehr knows exactly what our giddy souls are doing. Here he tells our secret." -- Neal Adams, Batman Illustrator

"As a study of human physiology, this detailed and accessible discussion could appeal to Batman fans and those interested in intensive physical training who are prepared for serious science rather than fantasy. But Batman is only the scaffolding on which Zehr hands his detailed look at the role of genetic makeup, diet, strength training and development of motor skills in attaining the 'outer limits' of physical performance." -- Publishers Weekly

"Zehr is a scientist, martial arts expert and comic book fan, so he's ideally qualified to write this book... Becoming Batman is an interesting discussion on the science of superheroes." -- Dr JV Chamary, BBC Focus Magazine

"Charming book... There is really nothing more awesome than reading a book that cites obscure neuroscience journals in the same sentence with citations to obscure Batman comics." -- Annalee Newitz, io9.com

"A wonderful book that looks at what it would really take to become Batman in today's world." -- The Surfman, thesurfman.blogspot.com

"Zehr evaluates what it would take -- physically, psychologically, and scientifically -- to replicate Batman's actions and become a self-made superhero. His conclusions are sometimes surprising, and often fascinating." -- John Lewis, Baltimore Magazine

Becoming Batman is your next step to supercool.--Rosemary Counter"Toronto Globe and Mail" (01/01/0001)

Becoming Batman takes the escapism of the Caped Crusader and puts it in real-world, grounded, scientific terms that is extremely entertaining and interesting. If you're not careful, you might learn something.--Louis Fowler"www.bookgasm.com" (01/01/0001)

As a kid, I wanted to be Batman but always ended up more like the Joker. I only wish I could have read Dr. Zehr's fascinating book then, so that I would have known exactly what it takes to become a real superhero.--Bradford W. Wright, author of "Comic Book Nation" "www.denofgeek. "

This is a thoughtfully imagined work that uses escapism to make solid scientific points that can benefit almost anyone. And for those who aspire to don a cape and cowl, it's essential reading.--Richard Sherbaniuk "Edmonton Journal "

A highly researched, very fairly reasoned and considerably factually-supported tome that not only discusses the potential for the most human of super heroes, also educates us in quite some depth about the limit of human existence and physical and mental prowess. That Dr. Zehr manages to add any style to his efforts (and let's be fair, scientists aren't known for their 'suave'), is a credit to the man and a credit to his obvious enthusiasm for his work and interests.--Kevin Pocock "www.denofgeek.com "

Terrifying mastery of the entire Batman mythohistoriography.--Steven Poole "Guardian "

"Becoming Batman" is your next step to supercool.--Rosemary Counter "Toronto Globe and Mail "

The author knows whereof he writes... written in an accessible and appealing manner.--Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky "Centre Daily Times "

Not only is it enjoyable as a popular science book for those with even the smallest Batman obsession, it could be an entertaining way to introduce human movement science to potential students.--M. T. G. Pain "Journal of Sports Sciences "

If there's one thing that has influenced the new stuff, the 'Batman, Inc.' stuff, it's a book called "Becoming Batman: The Possibility of a Superhero," which is written by E. Paul Zehr. It's a guy who is a doctor, and looking into the actual possibility of Batman and what it would take to be that person in real life: What it would do to your muscles and what it would do to your head, and how long it would take to learn the martial arts. And it's really quite fascinating, this idea of the real facts behind it.--Grant Morrison, "Batman" writer "comicsalliance.com "

Synopsis

Battling bad guys. High-tech hideouts. The gratitude of the masses. Who at some point in their life hasn't dreamed of being a superhero? Impossible, right? Or is it?Possessing no supernatural powers, Batman is the most realistic of all the superheroes. His feats are achieved through rigorous training and mental discipline, and with the aid of fantastic gadgets. Drawing on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist, E. Paul Zehr explores the question: could a mortal ever become Batman?Zehr discusses the physical and skill training necessary to maintain bad-guy-fighting readiness while relating the science underlying this process, from strength conditioning to the cognitive changes a person would endure in undertaking such a regimen. In probing what a real-life Batman could achieve, Zehr considers the level of punishment a consummately fit and trained person could handle, how hard and fast such a person could punch and kick and the number of adversaries that individual could dispatch, what it would be like to fight while wearing a batsuit, and the amount of food one would have to consume each day to maintain vigilance as Gotham City's guardian.A fun foray of escapism grounded in sound science, "Becoming Batman" provides the background for attaining the realizable - though extreme - level of human performance that would allow you to be a superhero.
