    "The best thing about this book is Dan John's entertaining take throughout. I didn't find any modern advice about bodybuilding, but the basic, tried and true fundamentals are scattered throughout."

    "This is a "get ripped quick" approach to bodybuilding -- don't be duped by these unrealistic expectations, and invest your time and money in an attitude that will ACTUALLY provide results!"

    "When it comes to weight training normally I wouldn't read a book because I'm more of a visual learner but all that changed with this book. It gave out basic strategies for me to follow which in return helped me with my strength and core training. This book helped me with achieving my ideal strength goal."

    "I like to read the books that will help me to improve myself. The book called the Complete Keys to Progress is so good! It came highly recommended by my university professor and once I started the book I already knew that I would love the book.

    "I have been bodybuilding for quite a long time now and I always look for good resources to learn new things I might not know. The Naked Warrior has a lot of things in it and it's really helpful. It would really be beneficial to a newbie who needs to learn things. I would highly recommend it. "

    "I purchased this book because the price was right! I didn't get as into it as I thought that I might. I'm more of a hands on learner and don't like to take the time to read about things. I would rather have spent the money towards hiring a personal trainer to come up with a plan for myself in order to obtain the goals i wished to."

    "I bought this book to help with my weight program and was disappointed that it was only 21 pages long. I expected to see a lot more information about protein and healthy fats and what the best sources of these are in food. Although weights are part of my routine, it's not to the degree that is in this book. If you are seriously into bodybuilding and plan to stop eating meat it is a good (though quick) read. If you want something that has a lot of useful information about healthy vegetarian eating, this book isn't the best source for that."
