      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. Also recommend "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff " if you have a shoulder problem or rotator cuff tear that is keeping you out of the gym.

      This is by far the best fitness/ bodybuilding book that I have come by. It is well writen, has accurate information, and discriptions and illustrations for specific muscles and exercises to work them (including machines and free weights). The sample workouts are well explained and are at beginner and more advanced levels. The principles of increased intensity have helped me push my workouts to a new muscle exausting level! I am currently studing to be certified in Personal Training and love this book as an additional resource. It also fills in the gaps that I have found in my text books. I would suggest this book to anyone that is interested in fitness, bodysculpting, & bodybuilding.
