Sadly in true Victorian fashion there is an overtone of class structure and snobbery as well as two very definite episodes of outright racism in his writing. Never the less an enjoyable and interesting look into a very niche area of Victorian society. An entertaining and quick read that reveals important info about the history of bodybuilding and weightlifting — including the marketing, as the e-book includes a number of vintage ads for Sandow’s exercise equipment and an egg-white nutrient powder he sold called Plasmon.
Half the book is memoir, though. It reminds me a ans of Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder in that way: Aug 20, Joe rated it really liked it. A very interesting book on vintage strength training techniques.
I found some of the advice hard to follow, and I’m not sure I believe that he wrestled a lion or lifted a horse above his head, but to have the reputation hpw he does, I am sure he was a pretty strong guy!
