The Kings of Strength

A History of All Strong Men from Ancient Times to Our Own

• “An invaluable work, an encyclopedia for historians interested in physical culture, sport history, gender studies and LGBTQ histories. Covering some of the best-known strength athletes (male and female) of the time, Desbonnet’s work is thoughtful, entertaining and highly informative.”—Conor Heffernan, University of Texas at Austin

• “Has the potential to change the marketplace, and introduce to many followers of strength, knowledge which has been dormant for over a hundred years. It could become the Rosetta Stone of strength books.”—Joe Roark,, former historian of the International Federation of Bodybuilding
