This book is exactly what it says it is- an encyclopedia. It is divided into no less than five "books." Measuring in at about one and a half inches thick, if the info contained inside doesn't help you get bigger, just try lifting the book!

A quick rundown of each chapter. The first book is basically an introduction to bodybuilding, covering a lot of miscellaneous, but important topics. The second book covers the training programs, the third the body part exercises, and the fourth book competing. The fifth and last book covers nutrition and diets.

As you can tell, there's really only one word to describe this book- comprehensive. Would have liked to see a little more on injuries, for example there only about a half page on shoulder injuries, but then again this isn't exactly a sports medicine book either. Weightlifters who have a shoulder problem or rotator cuff tear might also want to take a look at Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff.

This book is great! If you want a strategic, logical and systematical approach to your muscle training then get this book. It covers EVERYTHING from diet to training programs, specific weight exercises to being very motivational. It gave me the tools to get strategic and intense with my training, I recommend it without reservation! Good for the beginner all the way to the expert. In every sense of the word, it is the Bodybuilder's Bible.

I workout for fitness not as much bodybuilding but this book has so much knowledge in it. I lways find myself referring to it when i hit a plateau or need to get those small muscle areas that are hard to hit.
