Coming Soon: Mr. America!

The venerable John Hodgman just posted this through Twitter, and I was delighted to see it. My editor at the briefly relaunched Life magazine, Mark Adams, has a new book coming out, titled "Mr. America: How Bernarr Macfadden Transformed the Nation Through Sex, Salad, and the Ultimate Starvation Diet." Mark told me about the book over sushi while I was in New York briefly a couple years ago, and it's one of those unbelievable but true tales from the boiling stew of our nation's history. Give the video a look and be sure to pick up the book when it makes its way to breakfast tables across the world.
