The huge chapter on exercise technique in BUILD MUSCLE, LOSE FAT, LOOK GREAT is
a totally revised version of Stuart's entire THE INSIDER'S TELL-ALL HANDBOOK ON
WEIGHT-TRAINING TECHNIQUE. New exercises have been included, and the
descriptions of all the other exercises have been thoroughly revised.
In fact, Stuart spent more time and effort on the exercise technique chapter of the new
book than he did on the entire THE INSIDER'S TELL-ALL HANDBOOK ON WEIGHT-
TRAINING TECHNIQUE. It's an extraordinary study of exercise technique, but JUST
ONE of the 24 chapters in BUILD MUSCLE, LOSE FAT, LOOK GREAT.

great care, detail, and accuracy. Their respective page numbers are also given.
