'The Dawn of Bodybuilding'

Stumbled upon this and enjoyed it. I’ve got a pretty extensive collection of books and articles, and have certainly become a big fan of the history of the sport over the years. I know there are a quite few others on here who share my enthusiasm.

On a sidenote, I received and read my copy of Robinson’s book last year, and it was truly excellent. Just more information about how one of the greats came up, and of course even more behind the scenes peaks at what a scum-bag Weider actually was.
