As a personal trainer, this book is invaluable to me! My clients, as well as myself, have many questions about the effectiveness and importance of supplements in reaching fitness goals. I found that this book is 'The Bible' of Sports Supplements. The authors give their view on which supplements are worth purchasing and which have no scientific proof of effectiveness. This book is written by all the top names in the fitness industry, which makes it a truly reliable source to me as a trainer. Everyone in fitness should own a copy of this book!
