The Steriod Bible/ Vet Appreciation


Whats the best book to educate your self on ALL human hormones and how they interact and effect each other?


Better yet how did some of the vets here (BBB, Brook, Westlock, Bonez, Furious George, XdevilDog and others ) get your knowledge from. Just picking stuff up here and there? Experience?

Wish they offered some kind of class at universities. I mean I learned the basics from Organic chem and Biochem but still..I hope I post like BBB and Bill Roberts someday.

And to all the vets that are getting sick of the crappy douche bags posting here, we appreciate you guys still being here and giving the rest of us good feedback.

To all the new douche bags/ idiots that post retarded shit..READ THE DAM Stickies, do some research and post educated questions or a proper cycle layout.

Cheers mate.


Cron391, I get my info from a lot of different places and cross reference it with what I have read in other places. That being said, Anabolics (whatever year is current) by William Llewelyn is good for a base. The steroid Bible is a must for some. A lot of A&P, Chemistry, Biology books also have helpful info that can add to your knowledge.


Most of these books are trumped by real world experience, though.


I’ve learned most everything through reading on the forum or in college classes. This forum is very informative as long as you can weed out whats good information & not so good information.

And I know it gets frustrating seeing a bunch of posts that arent well thought through, but think about it… It’s a steroid forum… You’ll either be educated/want to learn or you’re going to be looking for a shortcut. It just comes along with the territory & unfortunately I dont think that will ever completely disappear.

Self teaching has benefits and negatives of course however… as a plus, you can set your own curriculum… create modules that you find fascinating to the relevance of the topic you study… i do this and it isn’t like learning, although clearly is.

On the downside, there is no recognised qualification at the end - HOWEVER, if this becomes necessary, then the information you learned previously will contribute massively to a related degree/masters and allow that paper to be signed in your favour.

Before i did my PT exams, i spend the few years prior researching physiology, anatomy, kinesiology, sports nutrition, exercise selection, program design… the lot. it meant i passed my exams with a 96% pass rate.

If i hadn’t left the states when i did and for the reasons i did, i would be a proud holder of the ACSM qualification - however as it was a plan, it did mean i began and continue to study advanced physiology and exercise mathematics and such. I love the shit.

There are so many books on Amazon (US and UK), let alone the millions and millions of informative sites…

Search through endojournals.org and there is a host of information on PED etc. there.
