Summary
"Since the beginning of human history people have created myths, tall tales, and super and anti-heroes--stories of men and women who embarked on intrepid adventures, performed extraordinary feats of unparalleled awesomeness, and overcame all odds to violently smite their foes. In BADASS: THE BIRTH OF A LEGEND, Ben Thompson compiles all of these fantastical tales from the beginning of time to today and tells them in the completely over-the-top manner in which they were intended"--
