‘There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.’ - Hemingway

New York author Brandon Carter is one of the top personal trainers and nutritionists in North America. He not only has worked as a fitness model for Nike, Puma, Adidas, Men’s Health, etc, but he also has trained a number of professional athletes and models. Brandon was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. He studied Marketing at Howard University’s prestigious School of Business and now works full time as CEO of “Bro Laboratories”, a sports nutrition company that makes the quality bodybuilding supplements. He has also penned seven books on fitness and personality improvement – and his chiseled Greek God physique is a fine advertisement for his self-help books!
Brandon is a straight shooter. He defines that ubiquitous term ‘Alpha Male’ as well as anyone writing – ‘When it comes to wild animals, it is usually pretty straightforward- strongest animal of the pack is the alpha. And the alpha is usually the only male who can have sex with the women of the pack (which means the system would completely fail with humans, the rest of the men would gang up and kill him in under an hour). Humans function a bit differently- we reached the top of the food chain, not because we are the strongest animals in the world, but because we are the smartest. So does that mean that the smartest person in the world is the alpha male?... A common thread among those guys would be to say that all these people are the best at what they do. But being good at your job doesn’t always necessarily make you an alpha male… being an alpha male usually lends you the qualities and mindset you need to become awesome at your job. It also helps you become better in your personal life, and get you the girl of your dreams.’And it is just this kind of light humor that keeps Brandon’s many readers committed to his self-help books.
Brandon divides his short but relevant book into the following sections - An Alpha Male is Confident, Body Language of the Alpha, The True alpha is Fearless, An Alpha Male Knows Himself, The Alpha Makes His Own Destiny, The Alpha Male Drive, and 7-The Social Life of the Alpha Male.
To supplement his instructions he adds bonus chapters at book’s end that are directed at the building of the frame the alpha male inhabits.
Another fine book to add to Brandon Carter’s library of self help books for all of us. Grady Harp, March 17
