If you've ever read a "fitness" book, then you've read this one. It reads like it was written by a frat bro the night before it was due, but he's actually a nice frat bro who's more interested in getting you laid than in getting you blacked out.
There is a lot of dead air in this book, where Keane puts words in for the sake of having more words in the book, so I often felt like I would read and entire chapter only to have one or two paragraphs of practically useful information. He also keeps swapping between writing as if you know absolutely nothing about health and fitness, to believing you're reading this book for the second time and should already know about something that will be mentioned towards the end of the book. If he was doing this in an attempt at making this a "reference" kind of read, or if it was some veiled attempt at making you want to finish the book, both failed.
All that said, the book isn't a total loss. If you have an eye for skim reading, he does provide just enough quick and useful information throughout the chapters to give any idiots out there a fitness branch to grasp on to. Even though the book really is about "How to Gain Muscle," it dips enough into everyday fitness goals for the average unhealthy American reader to give you ideas about what to buy at the grocery store or whether or not you should
I wanted to read this for a while after finding the BKF Podcast, and while I'm glad I did (if nothing else to support its content creator, Brian Keane) it was a lot smaller than I imagined. The book isn't an exhaustive read (~170 pages) which means it's an easy to digest book but not as comprehensive as I'd wanted.
HOWEVER I'm used to longer reads, for anyone who is a novice at reading, self improvement or nutrition/fitness this book is a GREAT start for you. I've been binge listening to his podcast ^_^" so a lot of the content I already knew. But I did get quite a bit of value from the tips to reduce tiredness/address sleep and stress/anxiety management. The best part about the books format is that you can easily thumb through it to either A) Find what you want to know from it or B) look back at it to remember its advice, as it's easily segmented
And if you read this book but don't follow his podcast (BKF Podcast, on Youtube, Spotify, Apple Store, etc.) his podcasts are much more in-depth when you find an episode about the topic you're interested int
