The prose is elouent and vivid which is what kept me reading through the first few chapters The narrator s self deprecating view had me wondering why I cared about him or what happened to him He didn t seem to like himself and I didn t think I cared for him eitherThe next two chapters detail the research project in which he had been an unwilling subject in his childhood These chapters come across as a clinical analysis problematic in scientific veracity but nonetheless confirming his low self esteem Chapters four and five get a little better as we flash back to his days at prep school and meet his friends who were also in the study We compare the research predictions with his view of these young menUnfortunately it s not until me meet Sarah in chapter 13 that most of this comes into context In the previous twelve chapters we ve seen his low opinion of himself It is an opinion somewhat belied by the reality of his success In his dealings with Sarah we see the source of his self doubt and may conclude it is at least partially justified Faint heart never won fair lady is a saying my mother used to tell me Robert had the courage for moderate professional success though he acknowledges he might could have achieved by risking But his greatest failure the metric by which he judged himself was his dealing with Sarah From this point on things got interestingWe see time and again though his actions that he has courage than he gives himself credit for The hideous study of Somatotypes parallel his doubt and self image Is he a rabbit or a fox Ultimately I don t think the author takes a firm stand and it will be up to the reader to decide for themselvesIt started slow but I was glad to have read it by the end

Free read ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ï David Sklar David Sklar ï 2 Free read Read ç Atlas of Men Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Long lost secret research study conducted at his prestigious prep school when he was a student there Robert has repressed all memories of this degrading “study” particularly the naked photos He learns that the research intended to explore the relationship. Although a number of characters in this book are doctors I don t agree with its classification as a medical thriller To me it s of a memoir like book which includes the discovery of some rather uestionable and clandestine research conducted on some unwitting subjects when they were prep school students Revelations about shocking medical studies are nothing new Most of us are aware of some of the shameful studies that have been conducted over the years in which the subjects are completely in the dark as to how their lives and well being are being manipulated in the name of science These teenage boys certainly had no idea They thought the mandatory nude photos taken of them at the school were for some kind of posture study Sure they thought it was weird but they had no idea how weird And they certainly didn t know their lives were still being studied some forty years laterThe study is based on body type as a prediction of performance Ergo the photos But it turns out the photos were used for some nefarious pursuits as well which contributed to psychological problems for some of the subjectsThe writing is good albeit a bit slow moving at times but the characters steal the show The author does an excellent job depicting the uncertainty and anxiety of boys trying to make the grade and conform to school prescribed ideals so they can fit in And it shows how as adults their experiences at that school and the friendships they made there forged their characters for better or worse For lack of a better term it s an interesting study in human behavior

    [PDF/EPUB] (Atlas of Men) Atlas of Men is not the type of book I’m normally drawn to as it is dark and intense with some very disturbing subject matter Having said that once I started reading I found it to be pretty fascinating It is dark intense and often disturbing but it is also full of twists and turns that kept me engaged The story is based on true events so in many ways is a fictionalized memoir Many of the characters are deep
