About the author (2011)

Randy Roach is the author of the 3-volume book series, Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors. The books entail a comprehensive history of bodybuilding and all its relative issues such as diet, weightlifting, fitness, drugs, and even global politics. Upon its completion, the project will have taken over ten years and 1,800 pages through extensive interviews, research and analysis. There is a heavy emphasis on nutrition as it relates historically to the fitness industry and the general public. Volume I was released in June of 2008 at 562 pages. Volume II is expected late in 2011. Reaction to Volume I has been extremely favorable with endorsements coming from both the general reader and professionals in the field. David Epstein of Sports Illustrated has commented on the unbelievably extensive research. Many facets of this intriguing history are revealed for the first time, not to mention an amazing cast of characters whose diets, philosophies and even idiosyncrasies alone make good reading. Randy is a retired computer programmer who spent over 15 years developing systems in both the museum and environmental engineering professions. He has written and been published in 3 different fields. Randy now makes his living as an author and private health and training consultant in his home in Ontario, Canada. He can be reached through his website www.randyroach.ca where you may also view the amazing feedback for Volume I of the Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors project. This website will allow the purchase of Volume I through Author House.
