Beside the more autobiographical part, he gives a good introduction into all aspects of bodybuilding: Training, nutrition, competition diet and preparation, supplementation, and also something that makes this book so unique and worthy, caus you will hardly find it in any other book about this sport: Robert Cheeke gives a lot tips and hints how to start your own career in the world of bodybuilding. No matter if you want to become a succesfull and sponsored athlete, a fitness model, or to start your own business... He covers all those possibilities and gives you a lot of useful information, that is not just theoretical, but based own his own experience.
One aspect that shines through in all chapters of the book, is that it is very important to Robert Cheeke not only to be recognized as a succesfull vegan bodybuilder, writer or businessman, but as the nicest guy you could ever meet! He writes that explicitly at one point, but you can feel it throughout the whole book while you're reading it... he wasn't born into a rich family and there are certainly people who had the luck to get better education than him, but he turned his life into a huge success story, and he wants to give you all the tools and all the support he can, to make you able to turn your life into a success story as well! This way of thinking defines the character of Robert Cheeke.
I never met him in real life yet, and only keep contact to him via the internet, but I'm quite sure: Robert is really one of the nicest persons you could ever meet!

The other problem with Cheeke's writing style is that he has a tendency to waffle and repeat himself. Take the following passage:
"One cannot achieve anything without consistency of applied effort. The more consistent someone is, the more success they are bound to have. If you hope to put on muscle, you will have to put in the work consistently with your training and nutrition programs or you simply won't achieve what you set out to do. Success simply isn't possible if you don't adhere to consistency to see it through. It is a physiological impossibility to put on muscle without consistency in good nutrition and training programs."
Good grief. That's FIVE sentences in a row that essentially say EXACTLY THE SAME THING! At least the guy's consistent, I guess, har har har. Jokes aside, this problem appears throughout the book, and pretty soon you're left with grossly inflated book that only has a couple of pamphlets' worth of real content in it. Too much bulk and not enough cut.
When he isn't talking about himself or going around in circles like an over-enthusiastic drunk, Cheeke's written a pretty good book with some solid information in it. It just needed to go into the hands of a professional editor, who would have cut it down by three quarters, or else forced Cheeke to contribute more useful content.
So, I do recommend the book. It's too verbose and disorganised to be of much use as a frequently-picked-up reference, but it's a decent one-time read, as long as you don't mind skimming all the fluff. It deserves 3 stars, but since it's one of the few vegan books in a field generally dominated by meatheads (in both senses of the word), it's the best we currently have, so I give it 4 stars.
It helped me to get back to a routine of lifting more structurally, instead of going to the gym and lifting a bit for the upper and lower 2-3 times a week. Instead I am going to the gym 3-5 times a week, for 45-90 minutes with a plan. I KNOW what I am going to focus on and that has helped tremendously.
He talks a bit on making bodybuilding your career and such, but I don't know why anyone would say he made this book only about him. He is very successful and a positive person. I enjoyed his attitude and positive outlook during the entire book. Only good things can come to your life from reading this!
If you are looking for a highly motivating body building book that breaks the stereotype that meat is manly, look no further. Robert is ALL man without harming animals, and that is just as sexy as a six pack.
