Poorly written, poorly read

It's hard for me to talk about this book too critically because I can't tell if the author is just a bad writer, or if English isn't their first language.

The book makes a few salient points about exercise. The rest of the book is lacking in detail, information, clarity, and good sense. This is all made worse by the reader who struggles with the book the entire time.

Do yourself a favor and just go to the bodyweight fitness reddit. It has much more information given with much more clarity and depth without all the grammatical errors. Seriously, this book is full of terrible errors, making it blatantly evident that they skimped on an editor.

The bible of calisthenics

I am just starting out on my calisthenics journey as I wanted to be able to workout anywhere, anytime with little to no equipment needed and calisthenics seemed the obvious option.
This audio-book covers everything in great detail. Yes I’m not going to be using all of them right away but it lays a good foundation of knowledge and puts you on the right path to be successful, fit and knowledgeable with calisthenics.
I highly recommend this audio-book for anyone wanting to learn more or take up calisthenics.

Loved it

What I like most about this audio-book it the fact that the writer actually includes a pros and cons page on calisthenics, which is pretty refreshing in the fitness industry where the health guru is usually of the belief that their way is always the right way. It's a really decent audio-book which I feel can be used as part of a real lifestyle change towards better health and fitness.

Absolutely amazing audiobook for anyone and a must have for beginners. I highly recommend it. It is very organized, and the exercises get more complex incrementally.

Of dubious quality

This audiobook, it very bizarrely written, with very dodgy grammar, it sounds like its bee very badly translated. I have no idea how the narrator coped with reading such badly put together sentences.

I'll be asking for a refund. As for the other 5 star reviews I'm not really sure of their credibility.

No actionable plan

This book is simply a collection of calisthenics exercise descriptions. Some random workout routines thrown in but no suggestions how to build and execute a training plan. Disappointed.
