Author Spotlight: Dean Berry (MUSCLEHEAD)
Have you ever gone to the gym and wondered what the heck people were thinking? Self-proclaimed gym rat Dean Berry wondered the same thing and used his keen eye for observation for the premise of his book, MUSCLEHEAD. From the She Beast to the Bigger Than You persona, Berry breaks down the different types of egos that are found in gyms around the world.
According to one reviewer, “The author has a real talent for sharing the misguided behaviors and attitudes that occur in various gym settings, which are expounded upon in a twisted and hilarious fashion. It’s a fast and easy read. I definitely recommend it for experienced “gym rats” or even you have never been to a gym before, but you might not immediately connect the dots on some of the humor until you been there a while, then you will easily pick out the humor of the characters illustrated throughout this book.”
This shouldn’t come as a surprise because Berry wrote about what he knew, and everyone knows that truth is stranger than fiction.
