A Wonderful Book................STILL!
I purchased this AUDIO book through AUDIBLE on the recommendation of a friend. This friend is about my age and is in fantastic physical. Having had 10 spinal surgeries in addition to issues with shoulder, hands, hip......... And fighting Leukemia, I thought it would be a better thing to be in better general physical condition. In the very beginning, I thought my age ( nearing 70 ) and being overweight would really preclude me from any type of physical conditioning......... Well I was wrong.
As I started listening to this book, it sounded familiar. This was a book I had read many, many years ago! I still do have a great memory, but now it's very short! I remembered it helped me all those years ago and now.......it has encouraged me to get in shape again........ So I went from 214 lbs to 170lbs over the coarse of a year and have been following Franco's advice. I'm not ready for any bodybuilding competition.......... No Mr America in my future But I feel so much better following the wonderful information in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get into or back into better physical condition. Even us older guys.........I would recommend going to your Doctor and getting the "ok" to pursue lifting.

For those who love learning the history!
I usually don't care for books that are done in an interview style format, however this one is the exception! It was extremely informative! for those of you that love to hear the old dungeon, where the blonde bomber. Frank Zane. Arnold in the other greats used to lift, this book is for you.
