Everson, a six-time Ms. Olympia, has compiled a guide for the average man or woman interested in weight training. While she does not address the serious bodybuilder, her suggestions will have definite appeal to the novice. The strengths of her compilation are the glossary of weight-training terms, the numerous illustrations depicting correct form, and the list of workouts designed to develop certain parts of the body and improve performance in various sports. The "cheesecake" photos detract from an otherwise informative and instructive book. For the serious body builder, the Joe Weider series (e.g., Joe Weider's Ul timate Bodybuilding , Contemporary Bks., 1989) is superior, yet this is a fine introduction to the sport.- Susan L.
