    Thumbs up any books you highly recommend?

    I always hated reading unless it was the sports column of a newspaper. Just recently I started the book called "Stronger Minds, Stronger Bodies", because of my passion for lifting. Anyway, long story short, I absolutely love it and can't wait to I get through this book to read another book about bodybuilding. Are there any bodybuilding books that you swear by, or are just flat out must reads? Thank You

    "Starting Strength" is geared towards strength/vs BB'ing but it's a great read

    Second this. I wasn't a complete noob, but I've been inefficient in my efforts a lot of the time. Might as well have been new in some regards. I didn't end up rolling with his actual program too long, but the general concepts and in depth form discussions on the basic BB lifts are well worth the read.
