Dave is a very philosophical bodybuilder, one who really has a true passion for training that extends far beyond the competitive aspect of it. I can definitely relate to this. I am a fitness professional, never having competed (though considering doing some masters Physique in the future as a 'bucket list' sort of thing) but ultimately it is the PROCESS of training that interests me more than anything.
Dave really expresses his love for this process in a way that is very unique.
His use of language is a bit different and it takes some getting used to, but at the same time this also contributes to the uniqueness of this text.
If you are a fan of training, a fan of Dave's (he also gets into his experiences so there is a lot of autobiographical material here, plus a large selection of magazine covers at the end), and the inner mindset of bodybuilding you will most likely enjoy this book!
I am personally grateful for the fact that he took the time to write it!
The positives of this book are too many to list. Rather than spit out "cut and dried" routines of the sort common in almost every weight training book, Dave instead seeks to equip the reader with a certain amount of insight, advice and instruction...then gently prods the reader to find their own way. While doing this, he cuts through a lot of the "flash and trash," mythology and outright hucksterism that is rampant in the bodybuilding world.
As a bonus, you receive insights into the heart and mind of a man that has achieved much, suffered and lost much and regained much. Dave is genuine...so is this book.

Dass jetzt jedes Wort den aktuelle Sport- oder Ernährungswissenschaften entspricht möchte ich nicht sagen. Aber diesen Anspruch hat das Buch auch ncht. Dave Draper erzählt SEINE Geschicht und diese ist interessant genug.
