"Few men grow to manhood without at some time during their early life passing through a period when their greatest desire is to be a strong man. They may know some man who is especially strong and wish to be like him. They may have visited the circus or the theatre and seen a powerful man who is their ideal. For at least a period they are filled with a desire to emulate the deeds of their temporary hero. There is no subject quite as fascinating to most young men as the subject of strength and development. The principal source of their conversation may be the deeds of their favorite athletic hero: a baseball player such as Babe Ruth or Joe DiMaggio; a football player like Biggie Goldberg, the great Pittsburgh halfback, or Ernie Nevers, the Pacific Coast fullback star of a few years ago; it may be George O'Brien of the movies, or one of the series of movie Tar- zans—Buster Crabbe, Johnny Weismuller, or Glen Morris. But the strength of the man is what they really admire, for it was strength and development more than any other physical or mental characteristic which made these men stars of the playing field or the movies. If you wish to prove my assertion that strength is more admired or talked about than any other subject among young fellows, start a discussion among your friends about strong men. Just tell your friends that a relative of yours, or some other friend or acquaintance, is certainly the strongest fellow in town, and then listen to the outbursts of rhetoric ..." -Bob HoffmanThis is a 6" by 9" original version, restored and re-formatted edition of Bob Hoffman's 1940 classic.

He was originally inspired by Eugen Sandow, whom he later partnered in business with. He became the editor of Muscle Power magazine later in life. Some of his famous pupils include George Jowett and Charles Atlas. The great Eugene Sandow endorsed Liederman's course. "I have tested your system of physical culture, and I do not hesitate to express the opinion that it is a perfect health and muscle building system, both from a medical and a practical point of view, and one which if honestly practiced, cannot fail to produce the best possible result. I certainly recommend anyone desirous of obtaining health and strength to follow your system. That you may continue successfully in your good work is the wish of your fellow-enthusiast, Eugene Sandow."

The first being that he has too much work, being forced to continue after he is tired, with the consequence that he destroys tissue faster than he can rebuild it. Second - That only few employments require the use of all the muscles, and all-round development is the prime requisite of great bodily strength. Third - It is but rarely that work or labor requires the extreme contractions and the vigorous effort which produce muscles of great size and high quality...A short period of daily exercise, of the right sort, will give a man greater strength, a better shape and better health than he could possibly get by labor." Earle Liederman wrote a number of other great books including Muscle Building, Endurance and The Art of Wrestling.
