Does anyone know any good books to read up on for some knowledge etc. I've only heard about the swolly bible (the modern encyclopedia of bodybuilding) by Arnold.

Sadly, I have found most "bodybuilding" books to contain information that is in direct opposition to my anatomy/kinesiology textbooks. Sorry, bro. -3X

Chris Aceto's books are pretty decent, parts are bout it outdated but nonetheless it'll give a good fundamental in both applicable bodybuilding and some of the science behind them. IDK about arnold's new bodybuilding encyclopedia but I hear that's a good read, though I don't know how accurate the information is in it.

I suppose it is not strictly about bodybuilding, but when the opportunity occurs I wanted to ask if "Becoming a Supple Leopard" is worth reading if anyone has, because it is waiting in my line. Any opinions?

@Bucky I'll have to check that out I was book shopping today but will order from Amazon, way cheaper. The encyclopedia is like 800+ pages.Had a lot of cool stuff in it.

@A_em I saw that today didn't read it though. Thought I saw it in the cookbook area. I was looking through some things there checked out thug kitchen but that's mostly paleo veggie stuff.

@ErickFromOmaha, oh for sure it is not about cooking. It is about the characteristic of movement and mobility. Maybe for most of you it is something that you already know, but I thought it could be helpful for me, as a novice. That's why asked if someone has read it to know your opinion.

Arnold; The education of a bodybuilder....Great book

Any book you can get by chad Waterbury or Christian thibaudeau would be very very helpful to you

While arnolds books including his biography may not be the best information they are definately interesting reads expecially into alot of the history and culture of bodybuilding.

What kind of information are you looking for? Because there's a lot of information already available on the web. If it's for exercises you could probably go to bodybuilding.com or other websites that have exercises. Goodreads.com should have a list of books too.
