The Champion of Reason is your kind of guy -- a thinking-persons superhero.

He certainly has an uphill fight against him as he battles for truth, justice, and the rational way.Set in the superficial city of Addleton, this satire is just as exciting as most superhero adventures, except that it replaces POW, BANG, and THUD with THINK, LOGIC, and LEARN -- while keeping that whole able to leap tall buildings in a single bound flare.A traveling DJ comes rolling into Addleton. He isnt in the singular city long before he hears a superhero-infatuated girl ask, Why isnt there a superhero to fight foolishness?

Thats all it takes for him to get together a costume and set himself up as the foe of folly, the Champion of Reason.Narrated by an outrageous, seven-foot-tall freelance photographer (who learns the real identity of the Champ and aids him), The Champion of Reason is as hilarious in its humor as it is scathing in its satire.Harold Brown, Professor of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University, said, Its a dangerous book: it will make you laugh and make you think.Standing on the side of science, the Champion of Reason barges in here and there and delivers harangues that incite the Addletonians.

The corrupt mayor and his inept police force are then out to capture him, causing the plot to thicken and the action to pick up.The Champs message can be summed up in this excerpt from a pro-evolution (anti-creationism) speech he delivers in the pseudo-science class at Addleton High: Im not preaching, Im teaching. There are a lot of people telling you to believe this or believe that. Im not telling you to believe anything. All Im saying is, Be reasonable.This unique novel has scored especially well with readers who like John Kennedy Tooles A Confederacy of Dunces and the works of Pynchon and Vonnegut.

Its entertaining, and it offers a lot to think about -- and laugh about.
