The Secret to Superhuman Strength

My new book is coming out on May 4th. May the fourth…be with you. I’ve been working on this thing for a long time and am still adjusting to the fact that it’s in the can. It’s about my lifelong pursuit of exercise in one form or another, which leads to all manner of other topics like creativity, mortality, and the nature of the self. With some side trips to visit the Transcendentalists and climb a mountain with Jack Kerouac. You can pre-order it from the publisher here! From The Strand Book Store here. From Barnes and Noble here.
