    Before anyone steps into a gym they should first of all read this book from cover to cover. Dorian goes into detail not just about what exercises to use to improve your physique but explains nutrition, specific exercise for and the workings of each bodypart and how he himself started bodybuilding after a brief spell in a young offenders institute.It charts his own meteoric rise to the pinnacle of the bodybuilding world and in my opinion is the bible that all beginner and novice bodybuilders should follow. Since eading this book I have had the good fortune to meet the man himself and can attest to his knowledge.

    Great read and insight on how he trained. One of my biggest role models for lifting and having a positive outlook, was a bit disappointed that the book came fairly worn and had old stickers on it.But it's a treasured book of mine now!

    Another very good book if you can put int he effort required to get the results, the people who say it doesn't work probably haven't followed what Dorian has said or cant put the effort required. if you liked this try mike mentzers books

    This really is a fantastic body of work for the aspiring bodybuilder. He starts of from a biopic account. Reading how Dorian won the Mr Olympia titles with horrific injuries is awe inspiring - never will I complain about minor niggles again!Dorian details his training routine. This is a genuine honest account of how he trains and interestingly how he amends certain exercises to suit him personally and why he ditches other well known exercises - again to suit his style. It's akin to having a master whispering secrets in your ear. There are so many little tips littered throughout the text. He's an advocate of the Mentzer style of training and details adaptation of the principle he incorporates in his training.Useful question and answer section on nutrition and other key aspects of bodybuilding development that can be utilised by beginners and advanced alike. It covers everything for success in the sport from a beginners to a seasoned trainer like myself.After training for 12 years and picking up this book for the second time recently in 2012 after reading it back 98 I can honestly say this is a much have bodybuilding book. I realise how much it has shaped me as a bodybuilder.
