Be a Hero!!

Heroism takes more than tights and a mean left hook. It begins and ends with the courage to make the right decisions. The good Rabbi reminds us that Bruce Wayne is a hero...not by birth, not by chemical accident, but by simple human choice. In reflecting on the Batman's struggles and victories, we're reminded that hero potentiality is resident in our own individual spirits. As Rabbi Friedman says: "Enjoy the book! Live its message!"

amazing book!!!

In a couple of words this is one of the best books ever written!! I have used the lessons from this book in my life many times and I plan to keep doing that.. Read it and you will thank me!! Enjoy Moe

Atomic batteries to power....turbines to speed....

I love this book! Clear and concise, Rabbi Friedman lays down a compelling argument, not only that comic books can be a valuable reference for lessons in life, but that one needn't be talented, smart, or extraordinary in any way in order to achieve goals and inspire others. With a telling style and subtle (mostly) humor, Rabbi Friedman ennumerates the many personal and interpersonal struggles that we encounter within our everyday lives, and how we can overcome them. Read it, and be prepared to feel invigorated in yourself!

With great wisdom comes a great book....

This slim, unassuming volume packs a major spiritual punch. Cary Friedman, never conceding to the darker forces of either the self-help or comic genre, offers a genuinely unique and sorely-needed take on the true meaning of heroism. Drawing inspiration from his clearly sincere enthusiasm for the Batman character, Friedman provides pragmatic yet profound suggestions for true life transformation. Fans of comics will love this book, but even those who have never picked up a comic book in their lives will find it deeply wise and (not insignificantly), very entertaining. An absolute must-read for all!!

Thoroughly enjoyable & enriching; not just for Batman fans

This book is truly wonderful: inspiring, energizing, funny, and rewarding, and not just for Batman fans. Friedman takes examples from the caped crusader's adventures, identifies the qualities that make him heroic and admirable, and shows us how to apply them to our own lives. With this simple, brilliant premise he has constructed possibly the most enjoyable self-help book ever. Not at all preachy or tongue-in-cheek, "Wisdom" is refreshingly readable and, though delivering a serious and profound message, doesn't take itself too seriously. Liberally illustrated with scenes from key Batman comics over the years, this slim volume serves the dual purpose of showing us how to lead a more noble, fulfilling life, and reminding us (or showing us for the 1st time) why the Batman is such an important and enduring character. Endorsements from legendary and contemporary comic book pros Dennis O'Neil, Steve Englehart, Neal Adams, Roy Thomas, Joe Kubert, Chuck Dixon, Ed Brubaker and many more drive the point home: this book rules, and is well worth your time!
