Don’t buy this book, check it out from your local library because its one thats really entertaining and informative but its not a book you will not need to reference again. Little Big Men is a real life glimpse into the world of competitive bodybuilding, not the PR fluff you get from the bodybuilding mags but the gritty stuff. If you have any illusions that you might become the next Jay Cutler, please read this book first. This book was written based on the authors experience with the pros back in the 80’s so its dated but still relevant. You can argue if its the same today and you can even argue if the authors view of pro bodybuilding is 100% representative or accurate. The truth is though that the author is giving us a glimpse into a sub-culture that very few of us would ever see or experience – I know it was an eye opener when I read it. Entertaining and informative. Definitely worth a read.
As of the printing of Anabolics 2000 I reported no preparation that was being made in a dosage over 5mg, but just two years later we now have several preparations carrying l0mg, and one weighing in with an incredible 25mg per tablet. That equates to 5 normal Dianabol tablets worth of steroid, which I think is clearly indicative of a new trend in steroid manufacturing. Understanding that the steroid market in many parts of the world really caters to athletes, many producers have seemingly been rushing to release newer and more shockingly high dosed products. Not only Dianabol, but also versions of Testosterone cypionate, Testosterone propionate, nandrolone decanoate, nandrolone laurate, stanozolol, boldenone undecylenate and oxandrolone have been released in the past two years carrying higher dosages than ever before seen commercially. With the extremely lucrative market for steroids at this time there is little doubt that this trend will continue.
