Having followed the "last 10 pound" series. Desperately wanted someone to devise a nutritious and balanced meal plan, which was calorie counted etc. this book does just that, and more. Each day Tommy gives you a set of, uncomplicated exercises, followed by a daily ( again, uncomplicated) food list.
A fantastic book, it's just like having Tommy as your personal trainer, (minus the expense).
The results speak for themselves. Highly recommend this book.
Had to order book from Canada, as it was unavailable in the UK. Arrived within 10 days, quicker than most of the items I order from Amazon UK, and taking account of postage and exchange rate, it worked out relatively cheap.

I borrowed this book from the library twice before I finally bought it. It think it's well written, motivational, and easy to understand. Tommy Europe promotes interval training with minimal equipment. All you need are the basics: swissball, weights, and resistant bands. A timer is also helpful to have. The book is organized into a daily schedule and suggested food plan (which is one of my favourite parts of the book - super realistic and offering good variety). The book is great for the beginner or intermediate person and promotes healthy weight loss (or increased athletic ability for intermediates). This is not a fad-diet, fad-training program, its a great way to get your but moving by establishing realistic goals. If you've seen the "Last 10 Pounds" TV show, you get the sense of pace and activity that is encouraged in the book. Tommy's voice really comes through the pages. Highly recommended. I do wish the book would stay open when laid flat though, would be easier to keep track of what exercise you need to do next.

Tommy Europe's tv shows only really started recently on UK TV and I initially skipped them - thinking it was going to be another crackpot diet with badly thought out exercises. As a personal trainer I tend to shake my head when watching these types of shows. I actually sat down through one episode of 10lb Bootcamp intending to laugh at it - but I was actually really impressed that the diet and exercise regimes were sensible and tough. Though the format was occasionally a bit too daytime TV - the actual transformations and advice given was top notch.

I also realised that I had let myself go to an extent, despite all my knowledge and years of advising others, I'd let injuries and the stress of life avoid practicing what I preached every day. I was not obese and still in good shape compared to most people - but I knew I needed my butt-kicking to get back to my peak and re-find that love for training and eating good, healthy food. I decided to buy this book from the UK and had it shipped over here.

The book is far superior to the TV shows (although it helps to have Tommy's drill sergeant voice in your head!) The book works like having a very good personal trainer on a budget. The programme is worked out for you, from the pre-start weigh-ins and measurements, right through each days food intake, meal timings, each exercise and activity level. The diet is pitched just right - it's not so extreme that only a pro-bodybuilder could follow it, but it's not avoiding the science behind macronutrient and micronutrient requirements and individual hunger/metabolism. The exercises are advanced enough to work but the explanations are simple enough for someone who's never exercised in their life.

This book is amaziing!!! If you don't see results in the first week alone.. then you are not listening to Tommy!!! It is such as easy read... after the first few pages... you are on Day 1... gives you all the exercises for that day with illustrations and then your meal plan!!! You don't need fancy gym equipment, very basic stuff... and the meal plan... same thing!!! It isn't a diet.. it's a lifestyle change in eating for the better and nothing that I didn't eat in the first place just small changes. I DID lose 10 lbs in 30 days... and because it was so easy, I kept going and lost another 5 lbs without even feeling like I was trying.... so I had to adjust my meal plan so I wouldn't lose more weight!!! How often have I had to say that.. ahhh... never!! I am a 45 year old so no excuses about being to old to try this... I now have arms that I am proud of and I lost so much off my legs and butt that my pants are falling off me!!! I cannot recommend this book enough.... I am 3 months past finishing the book and have not gained an ounce back.... LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!!

i admit to being a huge Tommy fan and that was lead me to buy this book (mine is autographed no less). So take my words with some salt if you will, I like the dude.
And I like his book.
Did I loose that last 10 lbs? Nope, more like 5 but thats from doing the first 2.5 weeks only.
I recently picked it up again and restarted and plan to make all 30 days this time.

What's good - the routines are different every day, they are broken into small sets and the diagrams and instructions are pretty good.
As I am a distance runner, I've got some good cardio fitness and a killer quads but I do lack upper body and while my core is not bad it's not brilliant either. I found the workouts to be challenging but never so hard you feel you have to quit. Some moves were BRUTAL but the next one would be easier allowing for some recovery.

What's annoying - the binding makes it hard to leave the book open on the section you are working on. A ring binding might have been more practical.

What doesn't work - well it can be tricky to flip through the book and keep to the pace that you KNOW Tommy would be making you do if you were fortunate enough to have him around. For the cardio stuff I transcribed each day onto a post it and stuck it on my treadmill.

Overall I think this book might work best with a phone app add on - can you imagine getting Tommy barking in your ear every day? it might make the bootcamp style easier than just a printed book.

Is it worth it? I say yes, the work outs a great, the food plan is practical - this makes this book a good addition to your fitness library.
