1.0 out of 5 stars You will learn nothing from this book, 21 Aug. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Didn't Know You Were Making Making (Paperback)
There is a severe lack of information in this book. You can tell when books only use one side of the page that you're not going to learn much. I can only assume that the previous reviewers are friends of the author. You will learn nothing from this book that you don't already know.

Hey,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry you didn't like the book. You must be pretty well educated in the subject if you didn't learn anything! :)

Oh and for the record, I didn't know any of the reviewers before they read my book. Several have emailed me for advice and I'm happy to help.

Mike

I agree. Whether you learn anything (in any aspect of life) depends on your starting point. In this case, the author seems to have dealt with your comment well. By the number of reviews I've red and by looking at some of the contents, I know that some of the info is not new to me. However, some of it is. I think most people are in that boat.

Not having read the book yet, the only other point to possibly make is that the author may try to provide additional sources of info in his next edition. That way, readers can dig further into the subject matter should they chose to and possibly make up their own minds on controversial topics.

Thanks for the comment!

I definitely strive to make each of my books as helpful as possible and regularly update them based on reader feedback, new discoveries, etc. I try not to hold anything back, but certain books do lend themselves better to in-dept discussions of specific issues than others.
