Poucas atividades humanas dizem tanto sobre a sociedade na qual são realizadas como o futebol. Se estamos falando da América Latina, o futebol se torna algo mais complexo, um tecido de significações fantásticas que está acessível a todos a partir do momento em que se resolve chutar uma bola em direção a um gol ou torcer por isso.<br />Assim, o futebol é amigo do mundo das ilustrações e das crônicas. Dessa forma, para apresentar vinte perfis de futebolistas latino-americanos, o livro de Rafael Duarte Oliveira Venancio escolhe uma forma híbrida de expressão artística: a ilustracrônica. A palavra se torna desenhada e a imagem se torna verbalizada em uma solução presa a uma mesma moldura.<br />Tal como as quatro linhas brancas que demarcam os limites do gramado do futebol, cada obra delimita um episódio do futebol da América Latina. Formas de lembrar, refletir e conhecer algo mais que afeta as nossas vidas quase que diariamente, mesmo que não gostemos ou não saibamos nada de futebol.

Battling bad guys. High-tech hideouts. The gratitude of the masses. Who at some point in their life hasn't dreamed of being a superhero? Impossible, right? Or is it? Possessing no supernatural powers, Batman is the most realistic of all the superheroes. His feats are achieved through rigorous training and mental discipline, and with the aid of fantastic gadgets. Drawing on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist, E. Paul Zehr explores the question: Could a mortal ever become Batman? Zehr discusses the physical training necessary to maintain bad-guy-fighting readiness while relating the science underlying this process, from strength conditioning to the cognitive changes a person would endure in undertaking such a regimen. In probing what a real-life Batman could achieve, Zehr considers the level of punishment a consummately fit and trained person could handle, how hard and fast such a person could punch and kick, and the number of adversaries that individual could dispatch. He also tells us what it would be like to fight while wearing a batsuit and the amount of food we'd need to consume each day to maintain vigilance as Gotham City's guardian. A fun foray of escapism grounded in sound science, Becoming Batman provides the background for attaining the realizable -- though extreme -- level of human performance that would allow you to be a superhero.
