Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Patrick Barrett has been interested in exercise ever since he started to lift weights with his dad and older brothers as a kid. He participated in a half-dozen organized sports (most notably inline hockey and high school wrestling) until a neck injury during a wrestling match in his junior year prevented him from playing further in any contact sports. After the injury, he developed an interest in pursuing strength and balance, particularly through bodyweight and self-taught gymnastic-type exercises. Patrick has always loved both cooking and eating food. Unsatisfied with the confusing and often contradictory nutritional advice offered by mainstream sources, Patrick searched for another way to understand human nutrition that was logical, consistent, and effective. His books on food and nutrition reflect this 'cleaner,' more intuitive and useful understanding of food and how it impacts our health. Patrick hopes that his books will save his audience time and aggravation by finally offering practical ways to achieve their nutrition and fitness goals.

You can finish reading it in one sitting but that's not a bad thing. Barrett very concisely goes through motivation, breathing, injuries, warm ups, two armed exercises, one armed exercises, then a typical workout schedule. He eschews all mechanical aids other than the pull up bar itself. It's an approach I also settled on independent of this book and agree with totally.
Overall, from my experience training for One Armed Chins, Barrett is spot on. I'll revise my review with an extra star if his advice helps me finally complete a One Armed Chin.
The only strike against this book are that the black and white pictures are pretty hard to see. The guy doing the exercises is wearing a dark shirt against dark background full of trees. It adds a lot of visual noise and makes it harder to see exactly what he's doing.
The progression is reasonable, and I would estimate take the average gym attendee 6 - 12 months to achieve a one arm pullup. Considering the difficulty of this goal, that's what it should take.
The book is well and clearly written with adequate pictures of a model doing the various progressions. The directions for the progression stages are clear and well written. Patrick comes across in his book as supportive and helpful. While the pictures are adequate, they are dark, somewhat grainy. They do show the gross movements ok. But more color, and more detail, larger pictures would improve the book. The loose black t shirt on the model totally obscures how his muscles are working.
I would recommend this book to any person wanting to master the one arm pullup.
