    I started reading this book today after a buddy of mine talked about it on FB saying it changed his life. I'm about 4 chapters in and I cant put it down. I am the true definition of a hardgainer with an incredibly fast metabolism, so I thought that maybe this book could help me. Granted, a lot of people would say "no shit, eat more" but it's so much more than that.

    I haven't been able to work out for a few months due to a medical condition, but once I get the clearance from my doctors that I can hit the gym again, I'm going to treat this book like my bible.

    Has anyone here read the book and used the goals/steps in it to take you from "scrawny to brawny"?

    Is the book honest with regard to the time it takes to complete the whole process? I hope it doesn't say you can make it in a year or two, that would be delusional.

    BTW, the "scrawny" guy on the cover is actually skinny-fat.

    I've read it. It has good work-out and meal plans. The work-out plans are in stages (i.e. building strength first...). I thought it has way too much information. Plus, it focused on compound lifts (which I find hard to do). So, I read the book, but didn't really follow it.

    I bought the book a while back; maybe it's just me, but I find the book complicated and quite "preachy." And there's too much to follow.
    I was more successful following whatever articles Flex magazines printed.
    Just sayin...

    Isn't there enough information on here and other websites that negate the need to buy another book. I wonder how many of the guys on here who transformed themselves actually ever used a book

    This guy says he followed the book for most of his transformation.
