superb plain and simple with no pointless chapters,
This review is from: Strength Training Anatomy (Paperback)
I'm not a big buyer of health books as most of the ones that I pick up are bulky and full of chapters about diet, clothing and general noise. This book just has biological diagrams of the body and gives several exercises (and varying degrees of difficulty) for each one.
The diagrams are like the Bruce Algra posters on gym walls with drawings of the muscles. I have several friends who have also bought this book as I really recommend it's no nonsense plain style. You can just pick a muscle and design your program around it.
Also the colour coding system is very useful as it shows the secondary muscles effected by an exercise
