I am a sucker for lifting books, the good and the bad.
Steve, to be honest, I wouldn't bother. Much as I respect Bill Pearl, the book could be an eighth of its size. Take an exercise like triceps pushdowns. There will be a separate entry for:
Standing triceps pushdowns
Kneeling triceps pushdowns
Reverse grip triceps pushdpwns
Reverse grip kneeling triceps pushdowns
One arm triceps pushdowns
...and so on, ad nauseam
. Each one fully described and illustrated.
For nostalgia or as a collectible - maybe worth it. For training knowledge - again, much as I like Bill Pearl, I would say save your dough.
