“Sir, my name is (name withheld by request) and I am a Captain in the U.S. Army. If there is one principle I’ve learned in the army from my days as a West Point Cadet to my current position as the Aide-de-Camp for the Senior U.S. General of all U.S. Military Forces, it is the B.L.U.F. principle. That is, Bottom Line Up Front. I learned a LOT from your book. Very inspiring!”

“The best book out there. This book is perfect for anyone who is into bodybuilding, or just lifting weights to get into shape. It offers workouts for people who can make it to the gym only 3 times a week, those who can go more often, and those who can’t make it at all! Normally the most difficult thing for me to overcome when working out is boredom. However, with this book, I can change up my routine whenever the old one gets boring. I can’t recommend this book highly enough!”

–Kosoku

“This is THE author to believe in. I won’t go nuts with this review because it is simple: this author and this book is the first step to take…PERIOD! I had been working out since I was 14, and I honestly did not know what I was doing until I was about 24 or older with lots of wasted time. I had read many books, tons of those popular “magazines.” All of them left me confused and going in circles. My advice is start with this book and read it cover to cover. Then go buy his other books. These books alone will give you all you need to know. After that, your experience and knowledge will guide you from then on. I also recommend buying any other book Dr. Wolff has written. Also, this guy is no pasty pale, 100 pound Doctor reading from a textbook. He has used these methods himself and as you can see by the pictures of him in the books, he is huge and healthy. He walks the walk. Robert Wolff gives you proven and time tested material, coupled with his own personal experience. He goes over proper diet, proper technique and methodology to get you started off on the right foot. All of us are different and what works in the magazine interviews of the pro bodybuilders probably will not work for you. Did I mention that the author really will answer your e-mail questions! Yes, I have had actually direct communication with him. He answered my questions and was more than happy to help. Forget Atkins, South Beach, and all the other hype out there. Read and learn from Dr. Wolff.”

“There’s no one who can teach you better than Robert Wolff. It’s one thing for someone to show people how to exercise; it’s quite a rarity for someone to be able to motivate and inspire you to want to exercise and change your life. Robert Wolff can. With great pleasure I give you the life-changing message of Robert Wolff. The world over, he has proved he is the one who knows how to do it!”

–Ben Weider, C.M., Ph.D.

The book you’re about to read is written by the man I consider to be one of the best and most knowledgeable people in all of fitness. His grasp, understanding, writing, teaching and highly motivating style is second to none. Bob Wolff is a top expert and if you follow his advice, you’re virtually guaranteed to develop a great body.

People have often asked how I met Bob. I’d like to tell you the story of how it all began.

Some years ago, a young man came to see me. I don’t think he realized it at the time, but I saw something in him that he didn’t see. Call it a gut feeling or hunch, but there was something about him that was different and what I believed to be an untapped ability. So I decided I’d put him to the test.

“Can you write?” I asked him, as I studied the expression on his face.

“I don’t know” he replied with a surprised look, “I can write letters.”

“Good. I want you to write something for me.”

“What should I write about?” he asked.

“Write about anything you want. Let me see what you can do.”

And with that, the young man left.

A week later, my secretary paged me and said that the same young man who I had met a week earlier had come back and wanted to see me. As he was escorted into my office, I asked him to sit down and as he did, he handed me a stapled stack of hand written words on yellow legal paper.

“Mr. Weider” he said, “I’ve written something for you and I hope you like it.”

I took the paper, handed it back to him and asked him put his telephone number on the top of the front page and told him I’d read it and let him know what I thought.

Three days later, I called his home, spoke to his mother and told her to give her son the message to call me. The next day he did and this is what I told him.

“I’ve read your article (on “How to Stay Motivated to Work Out”) and I love it. Now, I’m going to tell you three things, so listen closely. Number one: I want to give you a monthly column in Muscle & Fitness. Number two: I want you to write for all of my magazines. And number three: You’ve got a full-time job working for me out here in California any time you like.”

That young man’s name is Bob Wolff.

Since that time, I’ve shared many laughs and happy times with Bob. We’ve worked on great articles together. Have had many discussions over lunch and dinner about anything from history to religion, bodybuilding to business, women and relationships to many other things.

I’ve sent him all over the world to talk to, interview and work with many of the world’s greatest names in bodybuilding, fitness and health. He’s written books with bodybuilding’s greatest bodybuilders and has covered bodybuilding’s biggest events from China to Finland to Austria, Korea and many, many places in-between.

And even though he left the magazine some years ago to become an author, the one thing he has always stayed true to — and I believe always will — is a genuine love for training and staying hungry to learn new and different things. I’m proud to say he’s now refined them to a point to where they work for the greatest numbers of people and believe me, that’s no easy feat.

I see a lot of myself in Bob. Perhaps that was one of the things that drew me to him from the start. He’s a man of great talents, be they bodybuilding, writing, music, speaking, and many other things the world has yet to see. And I’m proud of him.

As I think back on things and the more than 70 years I’ve lived and loved weight training and working out, it amazes me to this day that I still have the same passion for it that I did as a young boy in Canada who trained hard and was excited with every new inch of muscle I put on my body and every 10-pounds of strength I’d gain on the barbell. Sure, I’m older, but the passion is still there and can be for you too, if you live a healthy life, work out, have faith in yourself, use your God-given talents and find just the right kind of balance in everything you do.

Yes, time changes all of us. Youth leaves us and its place comes knowledge, wisdom, understanding and also the capacity to appreciate and enjoy the gift of life, good health, treasure new experiences, remember back on great ones and cherish good friends.

Bob Wolff is such a friend. He changed untold numbers of people’s lives all over the world with his knowledge and words of wisdom when he wrote for my magazines. And I’m happy to say, with this new book, he can do the same for you.

–Joe Weider

 

 


Music Book


“Think of this book as your “Music Road Map” that will take you from where you are to where you want to be, simply by following its step-by-step plan.

“What if you could talk one-on-one with some of the greatest names in music today, like Grammy winning ASCAP songwriter Diane Warren, Grammy winning artist/legendary guitarist/founding member of “Toto” Steve Lukather, the famed record engineer and producer Bob Clearmountain, and mastering engineer to the stars Bob Ludwig and others, and they gave you their much sought-after advice on how to make music just like the biggest and best music stars?

“In How to Make it in the New Music Business, author Robert Wolff not only gives you this information from his interviews with these music legends, but reveals to you the technology and equipment that the “real music artists and producers” use to make their hit records and shows you how to use it to make hit sounding major record label quality music and records anywhere.

“Far too many songwriters and musicians spend years and years of their lives becoming great at their craft, but rarely, do many of them know how the real world music game is played, or how to create a hugely successful career and do it all on their own terms. With this book, those days are over.”

“Robert Wolff has poured his wisdom, experience and insights from living a meaningful life into lessons of life for us all. In an easy-to-read format, he sets the tone for each lesson with a powerful quote, description of a recognizable situation, followed by an explanation of the important lesson to be learned from it. I have recommitted to the lessons that resonated most with me: forgive others because it sets us free; balance our spiritual, physical and emotional sides to ensure happiness; and live in the present to achieve what we want. For those seeking deeper meaning, a more vibrant life, and relief from worry I highly recommend ‘If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now.’”

Go Tell It On The Mountain
I have read several books by Robert Wolff over the years. I found this book very inspiring. Robert Wolff has so much talent and I think this is one of many of his books that makes you feel wonderful after you read it. The lessons learned are always essential.”
–Stephie

• • •

“This book really floored me. It’s absolutely going to be one that people talk about in the years to come. I’ve read a couple of Robert Wolff’s non-fiction books and really enjoyed his philosophy on life, but this novel really caught me by surprise. It’s the story of a woman who achieve success in just about every way that the majority of people pursue it, and yet she doesn’t feel fulfilled. She ends up going on a journey through South America, traveling through the “10 Trails of Wisdom” where she learns invaluable lessons from nature about life. You simply must read this. It is of that rare breed of fiction that you truly feel like a wiser, stronger person for having read. Five stars, easily!”
