    He has another book that I liked much more than the one mentioned, Education of a Bodybuilder.

    So once a week I took a training
    partner and drove out into the country with the weights. We
    limited ourselves to one exercise for a particular body part. I
    remember for the first day we carried 250 pounds out into the
    forest and did squats for three hours straight. I began by doing
    twenty repetitions with 250 pounds; then my partner did whatever
    he could. Then it was my turn again. We ended up doing
    something like fifty-five sets of squats each- Arnold, The Education of a Bodybuilder
    Never in my wildest dreams on my best day ever could I ponder doing 55 sets of any type of squats...I have a hard time believing this is true, even with 250lbs.

    Some of the lifting may actual be pretty impractical for most, and may not even be true but there are some very good insights and some decent information. I wouldn't use it as my main guide to actually bodybuilding but its a sweet read and a MUST if you lift weights just to have on the book shelf

    Where I work (municipal recycling office), we used to have an annual book collection. A few years back, somebody brought in a softcover copy of it. That puppy went home with me!! It is a good read - written "simple" so even meatheads can understand it. Definitely a good read, and a must have!
