Keys To The Inner Universe


Has anyone read, "Bill Pearls Keys to the Inner Universe: Worlds Best Built Man."

Is it simply a collection of exercises? Or is it an autobiography?


It's a beautiful book worth owning if you have the money. The actual training information would be debated by many here, I think, but it's got a great history of Pearl and the muscle culture, some great pictures and really nice illustrations. Very comprehensive encyclopedia of exercises using a variety of equipment. There's a huge variety of movements illustrated.

All in all, I still think it's a worthwhile book to own.

Take it easy,


It's supposed to have 1,500 exercise variations. I would like to get it myself.


Great book for your library...it's where I first discovered "the look of power"


Thanks for all the feedback, guys.
