Useful start, but not enough detail

The information is this book is quite useful and provides a good summary, but doesn't really go into enough detail for someone new to exercise. I prefer the "Bigger Leaner Stringer" book by Michael Matthews for that kind of detail. Also, I don't think Jason Scotts spent enough time emphasizing the benefits of the large compound exercises, something most popular magazines completely ignore, giving a false impression of what is important.

The narrator has an irritating habit of not pausing between the end of one topic and reading the heading to the next one. This is particularly annoying during the reading of recipes.

It is what it says

This is indeed a short and basic introduction to bodybuilding (despite getting very scientific at a couple of points which will confuse a lot of people). FO the most part it is a good and informative introduction. Although large parts if the book are wasted being in audio format due to a regular use of long lists when discussing workouts or meal prep, which as an audiobook drag in and become hard to follow. And allow no way for quick reference in the future
