Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors, Vol. I by Randy Roach – Superhumanradio
I’ve never realized what an exquisite writer Randy is. The book is magnificent and while I’m only into the second chapter so far, I did something else I normally don’t do, and that’s I began reading it from the front cover on. From the Dedication right through. Its a superb piece of literature and I wanted to take in the complete experience.
I predict that this book will become an important contribution to our understanding the attraction to exercise and physical culture and its contributions to the formation of human kind as we know it. It has already made me rethink so many things that my head was filled with racing thoughts as I was trying to fall off to sleep.
I have a habit of dog earring pages that I want to go back to later so that I can add them to my knowledge base. I generally end up with a few pages at best in an average book. I have about 6 in the first chapter alone.
I was supposed to walk outdoors this morning but opted for the elliptical machine so that I could continue another 30 minutes into the book. I’m reading it word-for-word, also a first for me, as I loosely subscribe to the Evelyn Wood speed reading techniques to get to the meat of the subject, but realized early that attempting to do so with this magnificent book would be akin to bringing an iPod to the philharmonic.
I am so impressed wit the book. I could go on and on. Bravo!!
