Overview

From Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike), known as well for his amazing physique as his diverse career in acting, comes the cutting edge guide for achieving the perfect body.

In addition to winning both popular and critical praise as the star of True Blood and Magic Mike, Joe Manganiello has become known around the world for his incredible physique. Now, from the man that director Steven Soderbergh called “walking CGI,” comes the cutting edge guide to achieving the perfect body and raising your overall quality of life.

In 2012 he was named one of Men’s Health’s 100 Fittest Men of All Time alongside such names as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson, Michael Phelps, Carl Lewis, etc. His Men’s Health covers continue to rank among the top selling around the globe and last year he was ranked their #1 Beach Body in the World. In 2011, Men’s Fitness magazine named him one of their 25 Fittest Guys of the Year and he is one of the few actors to have ever graced the cover of the US’s #1 selling body building magazine, Muscle&Fitness. In Evolution, Manganiello shares his lifetime of experience and research in terms of diet, cardio, and anatomy, to bring you the only fitness book you’ll ever need in order to look and feel your best.

With a build that men envy and women adore—as well as a leading role on television’s hottest show and a lifetime of athletic achievement—Manganiello is more than qualified to write the end-all guide to sculpting the perfect body. His memorable performance in the 2012 film Magic Mike catapulted him and his fine, firm physique to the top of the list of Hollywood’s most desired male actors—and scores of fans either want to look like him, or just look at him. Throughout the book are black-and-white photographs and Manganiello’s step-by-step workout routine that combines weights, intense cardio, and a high protein diet. This book reveals exactly how to get the body of one of Hollywood’s hottest stars—promising to turn any Average Joe into a Joe Manganiello!

Editorial Reviews

editor-at-large for Men's Health UK - Dan Jones
“A day after working out with Joe Manganiello feels like the morning after going twelve rounds with Tyson. This is Hollywood’s hardest workout.”
editor-in-chief of Muscle & Fitness - Shawn Perine
“A comprehensive, yet straightforward and effective roadmap to better health and fitness, not to mention a killer physique—the kind that may just have people wondering if you’re not a fitness expert yourself. After reading Evolution, you will be.”
People's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive - Channing Tatum
“I’m pretty sure that Joe Manganiello’s picture is next to the definition of fitness in the Webster’s dictionary. You’ll be inspired.”
director of Magic Mike - Steven Soderbergh
“It’s incredible what kind of shape he’s in, the joke on the set was he was walking CGI.”
All-Pro NFL tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars - Marcedes Lewis
"Joe and I have a mutual understanding of hard work and dedication and what it takes for those two aspects to pay off for you if you ‘buy in’ to the process. Joe has been a positive force in my life! Turn-up!"
star of USA's White Collar - Matt Bomer
“This book will give you real results. I was able to put on 10 pounds of muscle in one month. Listen to this Joe—he won’t let you down!”
host of AMC's Talking Dead and BBC America's The Nerdist - Chris Hardwick

    good reads for the fitness minded

    Laid out well, a great asset in the gym, and helpful pointers for people working out of all ages. Im into my third week now and I am not 100% rigid in this, but I see results. We had a hurricane here, so it messed up my progress, or I would see better results.
