The Spiritual Journey of Joseph L. Greenstein
Ed Spielman

This book is a biography of Joseph Greenstein (1893-1977), a Jewish immigrant from Poland and an old-time strong man who was known as “The Mighty Atom”. Although he was only 5 feet, 4 inches tall, by harnessing the power of his mind, Greenstein was able to perform incredible feats of strength that have never been duplicated. Greenstein’s life shows how each of us has an infinite potential to achieve and overcome adversity. In his words, “There is no such thing as a little man, and nothing is impossible”.
