Two good Benarr Macfadden books

I recently discovered this book (below) about the legendary Benarr Macfadden. He was truly an American icon, a physical culture giant and one of the most famous people of the early 20th century. (Charles Atlas and Earl Liederman were some of his early pupils) Most people today have never heard of him which is unbelievable but true. He was a complex character.
