I remember a post not to long ago, I think it was a thread started by Shugs where EC replyed by listing everysingle book on his book shelf. I'm very interested in what he's got and I've searched and search and I can't find aything. Do anyone remember the thread? I have a feeling it was a Prime Time one. Any help?
I'll repost it later tonight. I've actually gotten several more since then.

My roommate has a lot of nutrition texts that I can reference as well. I might have forgotten a few, too.
wow what a collection. which of them do you think could help me with discus throwing and shot puting.

I'd start with Zatsiorsky.
Which would be your top five on bodybuilding?
Everything on the list that deals with functional anatomy. Not many bodybuilders understand how the body really functions; this explains why they're injured so often.
