I'm the author of this book and wanted to give you a little insight beyond the book description.

First, if you are interested in bodybuilding or have been for some time, you'll probably know that there has never been a book written that encompasses all of the diverse bodybuilding training systems and techniques that have evolved over the past century. This book does that. Along the way, I always try to make the reading experience enjoyable through stories, and make the practical applicatio
Learn the essentials of bodybuilding from a true expert. This book is great if you are a beginner or if you just need to learn more about bodybuilding. This book will go over many different systems, their history, and different techniques. They will also provide a lot of information regarding the pros and cons of various different techniques. The amount of useful data contained in this book is vast and very instructive to potential bodybuilders. The author is very knowledgable and has done a lot ...more
This book has pretty much everything you need to know about bodybuilding. It has information about the history of bodybuilding to the explanation of the different bodybuilding techniques. It shows how different bodybuilding techniques have developed so that the reader can decide which bodybuilding technique suits their needs. The author also encourages the reader to adapt the different methods to their training routine. And he also reminds the reader that over time they should use a variety of d ...more
I've been on a very big health kick since the summer. This ranges from eating right to hitting the gym 5 times a week.

During this time, I've bought A LOT of fitness books designing my diet and routines. This is one of those books that I bought.

This is hands down one of my favorite fitness / workout books. This isn't just your standard book that gives you a workout routine and tells you to follow it. This book breaks down the history of body building which teaches you where these routines came fr
This is probably the most informative book I have ever read on all methods of bodybuilding. Some dating to the sixth century.

While I am not a body builder - my husband definitely loves it, and even though his highly injured back does not allow him to achieve Craig's own results - he still loves everything that has to do with working out.

Thus I'm planning to plant this book on his kindle when he sleeps. Definitely an interesting read and incredibly informative.
I just wish it had pictures :)

What a comprehensive guide to the numerous bodybuilding protocols.

Really well explained and probably just the right level of detail for most people.

It isn't a training guide so be aware of that, but it will give you numerous ideas and allow you to develop your own training plan, adapt an existing one and give dozens of ideas to blast problem areas.

Great overall book especially if you have been away from the world of fitness for a while like I have. Great refresher for me as I was a personal trainer in my late teens and early twenties. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is just getting into bodybuilding or for someone like me who is getting back into shape after a long layoff.
