This book is so gay. Like, literally gay. It's basically soft-core porn coyly disguised as a weight-training manual. Half the photos are gratuitous beefcake shots with zero instructional value. A tiny section on 'buttocks' serves as an excuse for a full-page close-up of some naked guy's fuzzy ass. Diet -- obviously an essential component of fitness -- gets a measly two pages of nutritional boilerplate.

To be fair, I didn't exactly read this - just flipped through it a couple of times. But as far
Lots of homo-erotica spices up this how-to guide for pathetic slobby-muscled guys like me.

Due to the many gratuitous non-instructive photos that the book can do without, it gives the initial impression of a coffee table book. Consequently, it takes away from how informative it is.
