The book is a slow read, Victorians were a wordy bunch.. Sandow's explanation is thorough. Readers with short attention spans will find the long anecdotal section difficult, as with the long preface to his actual programme. However, for the student of Physical Culture, the book is fascinating. It gives insights that the modern strength enthusiast would be foolish to ignore entirely. After all, Sandow is one of the Fathers of modern strength training. If you read the book, you will see his influence in much of today's exercise logic.
This work contains anatomy, with details of anterior and posterior aspects of body and it's muscles. I consern this very important for phyical culturist or body builder alike. The book then proceeds to give some 46 different excersises with bodyweight, dumbbells and heavy weights that are completely usable today and I've taken various exercises to my own programs. I would like to recommend this very warmly.
