True story: I borrowed this book so many times from the library as a 16-year old that it fell apart and I had to pay for it. Although the programs it contains are a bit dated and would kill most mere mortals, there's still something about perusing this book that makes me want to hit the gym with renewed enthusiasm. Sure, a lot of it is bro-science, but hey, those bros were huge. If you haven't read it at least once, then you're just not that into lifting weights. – Chris Shugart
