Abstract:
"A journey of discovery of the human body's amazing abilities, featuring masters of muscle, memory, meditation, speed, and the brain. The examples in the book are a survey of what humans are capable of with examples from around the world. Short sketches of famous individuals, such as Louis Cyr and Usain Bolt, mixed with stories about the amazing physical feats of other not so-famous individuals bring these astounding abilities to life. Each chapter features technical illustrations that explain how the particular part of the body works and a section on how young readers can work at improving their own skills."-- Provided by publisher.
