Superpump!: Hardcore Women's Bodybuilding

Ben Weider, Author, Robert Kennedy, Author, Robert Kennedy, Jr., Photographer Sterling Publishing (NY) $10.95 (192p) ISBN 978-0-8069-4800-3
Weider, president of the International Federation of Bodybuilders (which he and his promoter brother founded), and Kennedy, Musclemag International publisher and body-beautiful hypster, continue the sexually tinged glorification of women's bodybuilding begun in Pumping Up! Their superficial profiles, diets and training ""secrets'' of 17 ``world-class'' female bodybuilders are presented as guidance but seem to be filler designed to accompany the tawdry black-and-white photographs. Repeatedly stretching the limits of taste and credibility, they cross the line with the claim that Weider was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. (January)
