This is not the book on how to look great for the beach in three months ... not even a book on how to have a shot at being the next Mr. America. It is a book on what to do if an average guy wants to deadlift 500 pounds after a couple of years of training. Sure, that doesn't sound like much, but can you lift it? And how long have you been training? Beyond Brawn will take you there.
UPDATE: I wanted to post an update after two months of experimenting. I would still give this book 5 stars, but I have found a new favorite source of information, Westside Barbell. Louie Simmons is The Man. Their website is VERY informative, and there are several very good youtube videos from there (anything by Louie Simmons, Dave Tate, or JM Blakely is WELL worth your time). I've created my own hybrid workouts using mostly Westside Barbell information but tempering their teachings with the information gained from the McRobert book. My arms have grown 2 inches each in 2 months, all natural (as long as creatine counts as natural), and I'm benching more now in my late 40's than I did in my 20's - all while spending a fraction of the time in the gym.
