Most people have an obsession. They drink too much, eat too much, do drugs, watch too much TV or something along those lines. The people that Mr. Lupsha interviews in this engaging book obsess over doing good. They just happen to enjoy wearing masks and spandex while doing their good deeds, which is unfortunate, because they probably would enjoy more credibility.... Then again, perhaps, they wouldn't enjoy it quite so much.

Most of the Real Life Superheroes (RLSH's) that are interviewed in this
I am simply fascinated by the idea of regular people dressing up and trying to fight crime. I would like to have seen more corroboration of information from subject interviews but understand the difficulty there. The author gets a big "E" for Effort!
