        Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger

        the first one, education of a bodybuilder is a good read. he details his childhood and early training years and it shows his determination to make it big in whatever he choose to do. it also has sometraining routines and diets in the back that, even though theyre donkeys years old still work to this day.

        the newer on that was wrote by someone else i havent read. but ive heard it was a bit of a hatchet job.

        There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.

          Get the biography of the Sahaba instead.

            i am sure you have read the biography of all of the Prophets and the companions of the Messenger of Allah

            sure, go ahead and read about that lying, fornicating, adulterer, it may bring you peace and wholesomeness

              If you want to just learn about general knowledge then just get it but don't make it a high priority.

                want to read about how he cheated on his wife?

                sounds boring.

                  don't waste ur time on him.
                  Go to an Islamic book store and pick up a book on the Prophet :saw: or any of the sahaba.

                    My sister has a book called Don't Be Sad. It is an islamic book. I could read that instead.

                        His bodybuilding book is an excellent reference book (encyclopedia of modern body building, I think) but I wouldn't waste my time on his autobiography.

                        There are loads of good autobiographies of our Prophet and his companions, much better for reading.

                            'Education of a Bodybuilder' is a solid account of Arnold's rise to fame in the bodybuilding world; for an inspirational story on sheer determination it's spot-on. On the other hand, as others have noted, it doesn't pull any punches regarding his shadier activities on the way up the food chain, so just be aware that sort of thing is part and parcel of the subject matter.

                            If you're looking for a more modern account of the sport, 'Muscle: Confessions of an Unlikely Bodybuilder' by Sam Fussell is hard to beat. He recounts his transformation from the stereotypical 98-pound weakling to competition-grade bodybuilder in a matter of a few short years... but it also recounts in detail the effects and pitfalls of overzealous steroid use, which nearly killed him and was a factor in his withdrawing from competition.

                            When I want to get psyched up for the gym, Arnold's book is the way to go. When I start having delusions of weightlifting grandeur, Fussell's book always sets me straight.

                            (As for actual workout routines and such, I don't use Arnold's books- I go with an earlier icon of CLEANER weightlifting, Bill Pearl)
