The book has a conversational and intentional humor to it which help to keep the subject of bodybuilding lively and interesting. If you are REALLY into bodybuilding and steroids as I am, than you will love this book. The author felt compelled to preface the book with the notion that steroids are unsafe and unnecessary. I disagree with this opinion and believe rather that steroids are quite safe when used in moderation, particularly when given to a man with underlying testosterone deficiency. Nelson Vergel's book, "Testosterone, a man's guide" details the numerous studies that support that fact. Testosterone replacement has been proven to decrease all forms of overall morbidity and mortality in hypogonadal men in most studies.
First off, there is really no empirical data on the application of AAS as it pertains to bodybuilding uses. That said, the author is most certainly one who walks the walk and has "been around the block" as mentioned above. This work is a great read and covers the basics of training, nutrition, AAS use, as well as a few other compounds. For a fair, unbiased assessment of the implications of anabolic steroids use, you really can't go wrong with this work.
On this book you have: - Training program (even though I recommend you to buy a specific book) - Explanation about the main steroids and their effects. - Cycle samples - Post cycle therapy - Long term testosterone use
Recommended for levels 1 and 2 of bodybuilding only.
I appreciated the knowledge of steroid use. I thought he took too long with his disclaimer of not recommending this for anyone and his sense of humor got tiring to me. Otherwise, a good read and I learned a lot.
The author knows his stuff, and there aren't many other places to find such an exhaustive and frank discussion of steroids.. However, the rambling, repetitiveness, and disorganization make it difficult to extract cohesive information. Furthermore, in trying to be complete, he throws a lot of unnecessary minutiae and over-analysis in there, especially regarding steroids, the make the book confusing at best. Lastly, the dosages he recommends, even for intermediate levels, are very high (and I myself am for from conservative in that area). There's some useful stuff in here, but it's buried in a haphazard heap.
This is a great book for the user of AAS outside of the medical establishment's prescribed reasons by firsthand account of a user and gym enthusiast. This work is especially good for beginners in this realm who have a need for literature that they may learn what they may be getting into. I think this to be well written and is one of my reference materials on the topic...
A well thought out and thoughtfully prsented look into the world of body building and steroids. Not a second hand report, as the author has "been around the block" and back in this realm. Easy reading and packed with great info for the novice as well as the seasoned lifter. A+, and hat's off to the author!!
