I just want to say that I Purchased this particular book from Lou Ferrigno himself on March 6 , 2000 at the Chicago Comicfest. He autographed it for me and my lifetime dream of meeting my childhood hero was finally a reality! He also autographed a Hulk picture for my son Nino Angelo and posed for many pictures with me! I read this book and not only is Lou Ferrigno very eloquent but, he also is an inspiration. Not to mention a great motivator. Physically and mentally. It's all here in this book, his childhood, his rise to athletic glory, his break in television ,hollywood, his marriage and his family life. Not to mention a great work out book to boot! His sad childhood and his father's lack of support was very moving. Also moving is the fact that he overcame his disability to become a champion and a star and an inspiration to millions. The pictures in this book are superb! His awesome physique is unbelieveable! I went on an immediate diet after reading this book and I am still on it. Every time I feel like getting off my diet, I just pick up this book and it gives me the willpower I need. This book is easy reading and it never gets boring. From start to finish it keeps you entertained and you really get some insight on the man , the athelete , the star . Lou Ferrigno not only is an inspiration to millions of wieghtlifters around the world, and a hero to millions of Hulk fans, he's also an inspiration to the hearing impaired. He's always been underated and has always had to take back seat to Arnold but this book certainly does him justice. I recommend that you buy this book if you are trying to lose weight, are trying to be motivated, are serious about acting , or if your just really a big fan . You will not be disappointed. Thank you very much. And thank you very much Lou , Wherever you are. Jose' Roberto Mesarina. Chicago Illinois.
