May not be a popular pick, but
The Abs Diet
by David Zinczenko
don't know if it would be available to you, since it is from Men's Health, but they sent me this book when it first came out since I had been a subscriber for so long, and I have let a few friends borrow it and it has helped them overhaul their eating habits and helped them lose a few pounds.
not really related to "muscle" nor "brawn", but an interesting read IMO
