Overall, 'Priming the Anabolic Environment' provides an excellent introduction to bodybuilding nutrition. Bodybuilders looking for a good place to start in terms of figuring out their nutrition would be well served by buying this book.
Although I didn't agree with everything Will said about training, those chapters provided some good information as well.
The chapters on promoting onesself as a bodybuilder or fitness athletes, while not applicable to most individuals, contain information that certainly won't be found anywhere else.
I do wish MuscleMag would quit filling their books with pictures of pro-bodybuilders though, especially when those pictures serve little purpose and have no link to the text. But this has nothing to do with what Will Brink wrote.

The one thing missing in most beginner to intermediate bodybuilders is a lack of knowledge about nutrition and supplements. Most think that working out hard is enough. This book will tell you what you need to do to jump to the next notch.
I learned a lot from this book, especially because I thought I knew what to eat and when. What supplements to take and when. I tried Mr. Brink's recommendations. I even emailed him and got an immediate and helpful response. His advice helped me to add more muscle when I felt like I had hit a wall.
If you're an advanced bodybuilding and know a lot about nutrition and supplements, this book will probably not tell you anything you don't already know. But,for the rest of us, this much needed information can make all the difference.
I find it interesting that much of the health industry, such as Dr. Weill, are writing and lecturing on topics that have been tried and true for the bodybuilding industry for years. Maybe the rest of the world is catching on after all!

I read this book a while ago, and it is still the best of its kind. He pretty much sums up everything a person needs to know to put on muscle mass. It's very practical and easy to read. It's a short book, but he does not use a 100 pages on silly recipes either, which is how most books are done. It's 100% good info. A must read for anyone who wants to put on muscle or is a fan of his.

Well folks, I guess I'm smarter than I thought I was, because there isn't too much in this book that I didn't know, or hadn't read somewhere else. Like a lot of other people in the ever-continuing struggle of self-education,I've done a few courses, and had a few years of hands-on-training, so, unfortunately, it looks like I need to search further afield for a bit more cutting-edge information. I don't mean to discourage those beginners to the "Iron Game" from checking this book out though, because Mr Brink sure does know what he's on about. However, if you followed his column in Musclemag as religously as I did, you've probably read most of the book already.

This book was ok at best. It contained some helpful information that could be useful. I wish it had been more realistic with less mention of steroids. If you take steroids this book might be helpful to you?

Been a little while since I read it- but don't worry about the pics of all those HYOOGE guys. Inside is advice that will work for everyone. Very good solid basic training and nutritional advice abounds.
