    IF you guys haven't read the book made by Arnold the small book . And not the big one...

    Well you are missing out, cool story from early childhood to his adulthood. His folks aint to keen on the whole bodybuilding hobby of his, but that didn't phase him at all, he truly followed it through and through.


    And i should say ( WOW ) he joined the military, played soccer, into boxing. !!!

    With no doubt he is a man's man. All around kind of guy that would make you think, this guy's passion got him where he is now All the sacrifices he did, the risk he took.

    Man i mean not all bodybuilders end up famous, or successful as he did.

    Granted he has flaws, everybody does. But hey without flaws life would be boring right ?

    I myself have flaws, and at least i admit that i do.

    But i do look beyond the flaws of either myself or at people, Arnold is not only a bodybuilder, father, he is also a mentor.

    You mean his book "Education of the Bodybuilder"? Let's just say that it's fairly accurate, but from those that were around back then Arnold did stretch the truth and conveniently left things out to make the narrative better. For instance the Mr. Junior Europe was not Arnold's first competition, it was some local competition when he was 16 that he came in 8th. He also flat out ignored his G4P experiences not including the incident with the gym owner in the book. Wendy Leigh's biography on Arnold is a pretty interesting read and probably much closer to the truth.

    I would recommend the thick book.. The Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding . It's more of a reference book and provides information on various exercises. Autobiographical books about bodybuilders are kinda boring.

    i actually enjoyed both of his book , the small one and the big one called Arnold's encyclopedia.

    and both a DVD titled Pumping Iron, got a good deal cause it was on sale . On the DVD he was like so sneeky on playing mind games with other bodybuilders.

    Especially on his buddy Franco Columbo icon_biggrin.gif
