From sex-crazed gods to ravenous monsters, Ben Thompson brings legendary titans to life in tales of adventure, bloodlust, and unrelenting badassitude.

Since the beginning of human history people have created myths, tall tales, superheroes, and arch-villains - men and women who embarked on insane adventures, performed extraordinary feats of unparalleled awesomeness, and overcame all odds to violently smite their foes into bloody pulp. In Badass: The Birth of a Legend, Ben Thompson compiles 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, including:

  • Rama: The Indian god-king who led an army of monkeys against the King of All Demons
  • Thor: The Viking god of thunder and awesome hair, who crushed the skulls of giants with a ridiculously huge hammer
  • Beowulf: An Anglo-Saxon hero so hardcore he could arm-wrestle monsters' joints out of their sockets
  • Moby-Dick: The hate-filled literary behemoth who obliterated ship hulls with his face
  • Skuld: The Norse necromancer queen who summoned a horde of zombie berserkers
  • Dirty Harry Callahan: The prototypical modern-day antihero and very embodiment of badass

    " Ben Thompson has never failed to educate and make one laugh with his brilliant use of metaphors and slangy writing style. I want to go read Ariosto's Orlando Furioso now because of this book. "

    " Entertaining stories but his writing style, which I initially enjoyed and found amusing, irritated the hell out of me halfway through. I will keep this one in the bathroom book pile. "
