    Description
    In the mad, bad, muscle game, anything goes . . . Bodybuilding is the wildest, weirdest sport in the world, but it's more than just a sport. It's a whole way of life for the supermen who scale its Olympian heights.

    'Muscle' is the result of two years spent in a land of the giants, men for whom life is given meaning by the pursuit of the perfect pec and who worship at the altar of Arnie. Beginning with the shocking death of Andreas Munzer, a fallen hero with a 60-inch chest and 22-inch arms, and ending with the unreal drama of the Arnold Classic, the Terminator's own tournament, 'Muscle' hangs out at the gyms and the shows, meets bodybuilding's stars and legends, its dealers and casualties. It travels to the heart of the sport and gets caught up in its lunatic fringe.

    Jon Hotten has a 40-inch chest and weighs 160lbs. Undeterred he fights his unpromising genetics in the kitchen and at the gym. He pumps iron with some legends and wannabes, and undergoes his own transformation along the way. From Margate to Mexico, Amsterdam to Arnie's place, 'Muscle' is a book for everyone who's ever looked in the mirror and wanted more.
