The greatest book I’ve ever received (after the Bible, which you already know about).

DON’T stop reading if you’re over forty, or if you’re a woman. (Oh, I barely caught you, didn’t I? You were about to leave the page.)

The older you are, the more this book is for you. If you don’t care about self-defense or martial arts, this book is for you.

This book has given me peace, made me finally feel handsome, and removed all the cares from my life. It’s taught me incredible stretches, unbelievable exerci...more

Sadly I didn't achieve my goal of working through the whole book before I had to return it to the library. But I did find it interesting, and I think that I might be tempted to get my own copy & keep trying to work through it.

Getting a muscular physique is an important goal for me, and realistic self defense/close combat has always been an interest... This isn't for either o...more

Excellent! These exercises have been incorporated into my daily training regiment. This book has a very good layout and the advancement (though a little slow for my taste)has a gradual progression, which is perfect for anyone interested specifically in the health benefits.
