Other than that, it's an excellent book but a bit pricey considering it only has about five 'main moves' per section (arms, chest etc.) in which the differences may be just the same exercise using either a barbell or two dumbbells, plus the following alternative positions. So really it would only be useful for a complete beginner.
I am coming from a practical angle - the sport and nutrition science discussed in other reviews goes straight over my head.
My starting point was: middle aged, overweight and confused what to do. I went to the gym 6 month prior to buying the book 3 times a week doing only cardio: rowing, x-trainer, stepper, crunches, etc. That lost me about 6 kg (1 stone) and I got stuck.
When I read the Men's Health Big Book of Exercises advice "you need to do weights" I was really sceptical. However, I followed the (excellent) workout plans in the back of the book and my weight loss got moving again - about 4.5 kg IN A MONTH. This will obviously slow down, but their advice was spot on for me.
I would look at the book as a "beginners to intermediate" guide, written in plain layman's language the average (and not obsessed) man can actually understand. As all sports books, I recommend to read the summary, do the trial and error thing and reread the chapters properly once you start getting the hang of it.
Personally, I am very grateful to Men's Health for having published the book, which has really met my needs.
