The Book That Lived

When my friend Ellington Darden released his new book, The Body Fat Breakthrough, it immediately rose to the top in Amazon’s Weight Training category. It’s still there as I write this.


Ellington noticed that a handful of books perennially rank in the top 10: Strength Training Anatomy, Arnold’s Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, and one that doesn’t seem to fit in that group: The New Rules of Lifting for Women.

The Magician's Land is a book about books. It's about the magic of reading -- literal magic, in Lev Grossman's world -- and the power of words, both what you say and what you don't say. As one of his characters says, once you read a book, you can't u ...more

I started The Accident with a basic question: How could anyone be audacious enough to set a thriller in the world of publishing? What could be less thrilling than a business filled by people like me, who sit on our asses all day writing and editing? ...more

“...if you use a standard called "biological value" to rate protein sources... soy finishes far below eggs, milk, fish, beef and chicken. The food with the highest biological value ever measured is whey protein...”

“Protein is to diets what black is to fashion: it makes everyone thinner.”
Lou Schuler, The New Rules of Lifting for Women

“So if you add it all up, weight workouts give you two, and possibly three, important advantages over endurance exercise: 1. The afterburn, which might be an extra 50 calories. 2. A higher percentage of fat calories used for energy after the workout. 3. A possible increase in resting metabolic rate, in the neighborhood of 50 calories a day.”
Lou Schuler, The New Rules of Lifting for Women
