The story of George F. Jowett is most inspiring to all who are seeking great strength and a powerfully developed body. As a boy he was badly injured and physicians declared he would never live to see the age of fifteen. What the physicians overlooked was the consuming flame of desire which burned within the weak, undersized body. He overcame his physical problems and rose to be one of the world’s strongest and best built athletes.

The Key to Might and Muscle is his greatest work in the strength field. Tons of information on exercises from head to toe, with many stories of his fellow strongmen and their feats. If you buy one book for strength and fitness this would be a great choice. Here are the chapters inside:

1 - A Few Chapters From the Story of My Life
2 - The Truth About Exercise
3 - Defining the Mystery of Strength
4 - Curative Exercises
5 - Building a Mighty Chest
6 - Is There Such a Thing As Bone Strength?
7 - What is the Bogey in Forearm and Calf Development?
8 - Thickening the Wrist by Strengthening the Grip
9 - The Value of Finger Strength and How It Is Acquired
10 - Famous Men of Might and Muscle
11 - How a Columnar Neck Creates Nerve Force
12 - Strengthening the Weakest Link in the Spinal Chain
13 - Creating Intense Vitality By Abdominal Development
14 - Banishing Round Shoulders & Protruding Shoulder Blades
15 - Some Fascinating Facts and Figures
16 - How to Develop Superb Hips and Thighs
17 - Where is the Science of Lifting Weights?
18 - Building a Shapely Arm
19 - How Specialization Destroys the Jinx Of Stubborn Muscles
20 - What is Man's Limit in Weight-Lifting?
21 - Why Home Exercise is the Best
22 - Do You Know the Sources of Your Vitality?
23 - The Standard That Determines the Ideal Shape
24 - Some Actual Results of Practical Exercise

From inside the book "Just sit down a few moments and question yourself honestly. Search your heart thoroughly, and I am sure you will agree with me that there is much to be improved in yourself. Even if you are athletic, you can never keep up the standard of fitness unless you stick to a few minutes of practice. It amply repays you for the time spent. I never regret the many hours devoted to this practice. It meant a new lease of life to me, and as I draw this chapter to a close let me say that such splendid specimens of humanity as Sandow, Maxick, and Pullum all traversed the same road to secure what they got. They were not miracles, although it may appear so. Just remember them, and let their lives inspire you, as I was inspired. Everybody has the same chance, and the man who is normally healthy, really, has no obstacles to face. Perseverance, patience and determination will be repaid in untold wealth, health, strength, self-reliance and fortitude."

George Jowett has his name attached to a number of other books including the ever-popular Molding Mighty Men Series.
