I think Arnold's book was mostly ghostwritten, and from what I remember the nutrition advice wasn't that great. He did have a great physique but remember he was on grams of testosterone and dianabol, according to some sources he took it since the age of 13. impossible to build a body like that and still maintain health.

i will post more good books tomorrow, too tired right now

Bolded part is completely inaccurate.

What makes you think that Arnold's Bodybuilding Encyclopedia was ghostwritten :?:

cover says "with Bill Dobbins" and i'll bet you Billy did most of the writing.

speculating on his drug use cannot be said to be "completely inaccurate" as no one really knows what or how much he took. according to one biographer he took dbol since 13. the point i guess i was trying to make is that following trainign advice for the genetically-enhanced is silly.

Any of the Frank Zane books . . . while he is not a Vegan, he emphasizes the importance of the mind in bodybuilding, even talking about the relevance of meditation. He was on the forefront of utiziling "out of the box" training and recovery techniques for his competitions. Having a smaller frame, he had to be "on point" to be successful and was known as "the chemist", not only for his background as a high school chemistry teacher, but for his knowledge and use of supplementation/strict dieting patterns. Has always emphasized the importance of symmetry over mass in bodybuilding . . . his latest book is appropriately titled "Symmetry".
