did not like it
bookshelves: all-is-vanity

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 as I can see, it's only good for a laugh - or a wank, depending on your proclivities.
