Negrita Jayde writes a remarkably complete, concise, and approachable book on the intricacies of natural bodybuilding. She makes few assumptions about the knowledge level of her readers, but yet the book is so informative that even experienced bodybuilders/competitors won't be bored. She covers everything from visual impressions of the body, symmetry, nutrition, training, supplementation, lighting for training and photographs, definitions of physical (worth the price of the book alone!) condition, and presentation, plus some of the psychology of bodybuilding and that of the reactions of the general public to bodybuilders...the most complete and useful book I've seen...I use my copy continually

This book is the only book I've found that goes deep into the importance of nutrition in bodybuilding. I refer back to it time and time again and each time I learn something new! It's great for those who just want to shed a little body fat for summer and for those who want to "cut-up" for competition. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about diet, exercise and strength training!

I know very little of what is to be known about being a great bodybuilder, beings I have only competed in two bodybuilding competitions. I have read Arnold's Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, as well as a book by Franco Columbu, both of which are great, just as this one is. I highly suggest anyone of any caliber to read any of these books. Don't just skim the book either, read it! When I read sliced I felt like Bill was talking directly to me, with comments like "oh I'd look like that too if I ate a lot and lifted that hard", but we all know the little runts that say that could never do what it takes to be the best.

If you are looking at doing a BB contest or just looking your best at the beach, SLICED is the resource for you. Some of the supplement information is a little outdated and I'm not big on using a lot of recipies but the bulk of the book is solid information on trimming fat and maintaining muscle. An EXCELLENT MUST-HAVE for the serious bodybuilder!

If you follow the tenets of this book and don't get wrapped around chasing the latest gab in the magazines, you will experience great results.
