Vida Book = Great
I picked up the Julius Vida book, Androgens and Anabolic Agents, today, and holy **** this has got to be the best book for understanding everything about PH's and Steroids. I was expecting it to be a little difficult to read but the thing is like the most basic Chemistry book out. Its like the dummies guide to everything. It tell exactly what each does, what happens to each between conversions, what changing each can do and so much more. No wonder PA lives by the thing. It ****ing idiot proof. But it is the best one ive seen to date.
Im debating on digitizing it and putting it on disc or having it copied and bound. Ive yet to find any copiers that would do it though. We'll see.
I love it!!!

haaaaaaaaaaa, where is it available? Good luck finding a copy. I had to do a interlibrary loan through my university and they found 1 copy in the state of florida and it belonged to a school on the other side of the state. But they managed to get them to send it even though it was a reference book and wasnt supposed to leave the library there. I guess someone made a mistake. Anyways if you find it expect to pay $300+ dollars for it. When it was available for sale (being printed) the price was like 269 or 369 I forget which one it was. But it hasnt been printed for like 35 years and everyone wants it so you know how that effects the price. Ive seen some insane numbers for it.
Im currently digitizing it and putting it on disc for a select few (at a cost of course) and should be done scanning it in about 4 days. If you have no experience with chemistry then dont waste your time looking for it. It is a very simple read but I have chem experience and besides only 100 pages are text, the rest (300) are carbon ring diagrams, graphs, charts, etc.)
Its definitly the best book ive seen about these compounds and If you feel you could understand it and like to know more about what you putting in your body or thinking about I recommend it.

Bro, whats the price your going to be asking for the disc format? I have the book sitting here in front of me but a digital compy would be nice also.
PS: Have you checked out any of those compunds I mentioned above yet?

You have got to be kidding about the tren type compound. Theres literally over 50 that closely resemble tren. I need a better clue.
As far as pricing, PM me and we'll talk about it that way. Not expensive though.

You bastard your mailbox is full. Ruff clean out your freakin locker! Ive got a nice respone for you. Im done scanning the entire thing and it is a certified eBook . Im currently Password protecting it and then it will be done.
Anybody else interested let me know. Select few only. The book is definitly a tool not a toy.
And dont ask for a link just yet, I gotta recover loses for a $150 scanner bulb. I scanned the entire thing in a extremly high photo quality mode so it completely readable and can be blown up for a 60" screen and still readable. I know I went overboard but what the hell, its a good book and its a shame that its out of print.

I must be lucky, 6 libraries in my state, ranging from 45min - 3 hour drives. I put in a request for it and was told that they should have it within 21 days, and will transfer it because its not classified as reference at 4 of the libraries.
If I like it, count me in for a digital copy.

It's just another book by Vida. Not the one being discussed here, which is titled Androgens and Anabolic Agents.Originally posted by captainbicept
