    There is no question that sandow paved the way for the fitness industry.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    What makes chapman's coverage of sandow so impressive his near disclaimer in the preface: that despite there being plenty of print on sandow from his heyday, how much of it is reliable is questionable.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Sandow is neither deified nor demonized; this is a biography written the way biographies should be written.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It should be noted, however, that chapman shows us more instances of sandow being the man making the challenge, resulting in showboaters and sandow impostors trying to duck the challenge.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    His position as the father of the sport is assured, not least by the fact that the weider organisation/ifbb call their mr olympia trophy (the highest honour in todays bodybuilding world) a sandow.

    The irony is not lost on this reader.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Chapman does provide snippets of so-called evidence, but this tends to come in the form of malicious remarks made by those with an axe to grind.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Chapman may or may not be right, but the evidence is not exactly compelling.
