Which Bodybuilding Book to Get?

Hey I need some help deciding which of these books to buy…

The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding : The Bible of Bodybuilding, Fully Updated and Revised - Arnold Schwarzenegger

or

Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding: The Complete A-Z Book on Muscle Building - Robert Kennedy

both from what I understand are very good, but I would like to buy only one. or if you have any other suggestions on other books of the type. any input would be appreciated.

I have Arnolds and found it really enjoyable. Heaps of pictures and heaps of info. If your starting out its worth while to read.

No idea on the second one.

I have several and while they are both decent. I like the Arnold book better. I also like the Weider Bodybuilding Encyclopedia book. Buy all of them!
