    This is the same program sold earlier as "Its Never crowded along the Extra Mile". All that's been done is that the 3 or 4 minutes were removed and the rest repackaged as a new program !

    Its a great seminar, but I feel cheated as I've ended up buying both "products" when they're exactly the same !

    From Superman's very first deed of daring to his battle of wits with evil business tycoon Lex Luthor, The Adventures of Superman tells the story of the Man of Steel from the beginning. It's all here: his love affair with Lois Lane, his friendship with Jimmy Olsen, and his battles with adversaries including Luthor, the Bizarro Superman, and Metallo, the cyborg with a kryptonite heart!

    Overall

    A Clark Kent who sounds & behaves like a bumbling adolescent (and this is supposed to be "who he really is") who then magically transforms in a "manly-man" Superman ... who seems to have modeled his personality & voice on Adam West's Batman of the '60s. A Lex Luthor who is almost drowned out by deafeningly (supposedly) ominous music every time he decides to speak. There's even a US President who actually manages to make Bush seem statesman-like. The story line itself doesn't quite make one want to throw up, but that's the best one can say for it.

    If the planet Krypton had a gravitational field strong enough to account for Superman's amazing strength, would it be possible to launch a rocket ship from the planet's surface? Could evolution actually produce X-Men? The Science of Superheroes takes a lighthearted but clearheaded look at the real science behind some of the greatest superhero comic books of all time.

    Overall

    I bought this book because I've always been enthusiastic about the joy of superheros since I have been very young .. and now have young children of my own. Superheroes (and Superman in particular) to me,have always been entertaining and nearly always uplifting in that easy, childlike way that makes you wish they were real .. or that you could be at least a little like them !

    I can't imagine anyone though, who would believe that this stuff was real - even as a kid.

    The authors of this book though, are different... they are "scientists". They seem to imagine that superhero fans are a bunch of uneducated, deluded idiots and have taken it upon themselves to correct this grave flaw in the moral and mental make up of this shallow and silly community. And yes, they'd also like to tell you that if you had just a bit of sense and decency, you should actually prefer Donald Duck ! ..No, really !

    Their "science" too is basic and as close minded as a pair of village school teachers.

    And the entire delivery is done in that smug, sneering tone of the know-it-all, who sadly doesn't quite understand that he's quite out of touch with what the entire room thinks of his conversation and views.

    Give this one a miss.
