When I was 21 I was deep into Ayn Rand. I'd worked my way through The Fountainhead and then Atlas Shrugged, marking the passages that I found particularly inspiring....John Galt's long speech. I'd got there via Mike Mentzer - who had mentioned Rand in his interview with John Little. Also I had been quite into Rush and their songs Anthem ("Live for yourself -- there's no one else more worth living for.") , Closer to the Heart and the suite 2112 were inspired by Rand.
Well that was 22 yeas ago.....I'm still fascinated by exercise and philosophy although it is a while since I opened the Fountainhead.
Who is Anthony?
Anthony is the man behind the 21 Convention - a men's convention which while oringinally focussed on "pick up" has expanded into general self development. Last year, he had as speakers:
- Doug McGuff MD
- Mark Sisson
- Drew Baye
- Bill DeSimone
Their talks have now been released on DVD: The 21 Convention Exercise & Nutrition Mega Pack
- Each is a high quality presentation of about an hour in which the speaker goes into great detail about their subject .
- Each does it with great clarity.
I've read Doug McGuff's book several times and also interviewed him but sitting through his talk here I really began to connect the dots and really "get" some of this more deeply than before.
The DVDs are professionally produced and easy to sit through. Highly recommended.
Anthony has gathered together some of the greatest minds in exercise today. Each knows their stuff and - in their way - each stands against much conventional wisdom with some unique persepctive and integrity.
You get the full set for $111.95 + Standard Shipping & Handling or they are $19.99 each. I got mine delivered to Scotland from the States within a week. Good value and good service.
