This book was a gift to me.. I don't think I would have read it otherwise.

The book is targeted to people who have never worked out before. He motivates 'obese' people - and tells them they can even do the workout while watching t.v.

The exercises themselves are very good, however I don't see obese people starting with push-ups - they is no point in doing them at that stage, and are very likely to injure themselves.

I liked the descriptions of the exercises, and they all have pictures which is grea

Harvey Walden is one scary-a** mofo . . . and I would totally save my pennies to buy this book. The thing about this book that I so enjoy is that Harvey's voice comes through on every page. You know . . . the Harvey that we've all grown to know and love on Celebrity Fit Club. The Harvey who is mean and angry and yells all the time, but does it all from a place of great tenderness and belief and hope that people will get in shape.

The other amazing thing about this book is that he actually delive

This book would be 100 percent better with a strong editor who still allows the author's voice to ring out, without using the author's actual words. The exercises are good, and some of the chapters have good advice. Mostly, though, the writing is poor and off-topic. (I've never seen the author's t.v. show, so I knew nothing about him before I picked up the book. I think it's mainly written for his audience who are already fans of his style.) At any rate, there is some good content, but you have ...more

This book is excellent.

Mr. Walden both walks that walk and talk which is rare alongside with brutal honesty. Anyone who needs motivation to get back in shape and focuse should read this book. He definitely gives no excuses at all. There are a lot of fitness books out there, this is one of the best one so far and will read another fitness book soon.

I really like Harvey's attitude and I'm about to try the first level workout in his book. It's cool that you don't need to go to the gym to do it and don't need any special equipment.

I enjoy watching him on Celebrity Fit Club, so when I saw this book, I grabbed it.
