    2-0 out of 5 stars The Slow Playboy Devolution
    I received my subscription to Playboy as a birthday gift from a girlfriend when I was in College some 15 years ago. While she thought I would enjoy the erotic photography, I actually wound up being hooked on the political commentaries, the editorials, and often informative Playboy advisor. I never used playboy for self-gratifying purposes, but was definitely a champion of "I read playboy for the Articles." My girlfriend later believed me when she wound up finding my hidden Pornography stash, which, I definitely did not read for the articles.

    Well folks, over the past few years, Playboy has declined. The "articles" have been slimmed down for those with short attention spans, and rarely does the magazine make any political statements, or touch on controversial topics. Even the advisor has turned into letters describing Penthouse Forum style experiences, with a response saying "Great experience, insert witty comment here."

    The decline has been gradual, and definitely crept up on me, but now the only difference between MAXIM and Playboy are the centerfolds. It's very sad. Playboy was the one true "Gentleman's" magazine. Now it seems to be pandering to the prurient and ill educated. Playboy has transformed itself from a Men's Magazine, to a collage of MTV images and meaningless tag lines. I've since cancelled my subscription, and there is no magazine that I can find that caters to the discerning "Gentleman."

    I hope Playboy reinvents itself back to its roots again. Because, truly, those teenagers who enjoy it now, will grow out of it and will never match the loyalty... the loyalty Hef used to have... with those who collected the magazine and looked forward to each new issue.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For men who love living
    +++
    Playboy is not just a magazine -- it's an accessory for
    living the modern good-life!

    Of course there are amazing pictures of gorgeous women,
    but it's also much more than that. It's an attitude;
    one that is about loving women and loving life... getting
    the most out of life and every moment of living.

    The articles and interviews and fashion insights are current
    and very modern. They have turned me on to cool trends and
    devellopments like the new Ford Thunerbird, and Jet Blue airlines and the "New Sex Now" dvd for super-intense sex.

    Keeping Playboy on my coffee table is a commitment to myself,
    to fun, and to being a man who lives life to the fullest.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good articles lame photos.
    This magazine still writes good articles but the photographs of the women are more often then not really lame.Its not as bad as Penthouse with the black and white photographs and the mediocre hardcore but one good thing that Penthouse has that Playboy doesnt are the luscious lesbian photos. I dont know why but Penthouse always has the really good looking women in that department.I must admit that Playboy does have some very cute women sometimes though.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good for Legacy,but it's best days are behind them
    Playboy use to be a really Cool Mag but over the past decade all the chicks all pretty much look the same&there ain't alot of variety going on.now the writing,Editorials,etc... are where it's at when it comes to Playboy.I enjoy reading the Magazine more so than the tired Formula based they keep offering as Centerfolds. I still dig the Interviews especially the 20 questions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Holy *****beep***** 5 stars
    Playboy is amazing. Everything about it from the articles(whoever judges Playboy without ever taking a peek at the articles should shut it), the beautiful girls, the humor, the interviews, and much more, is top notch.
    I admit the content, as far as the articles on current issues are concerned, is overall liberal, but people fear them because 99 times out of 100 they speak the truth. Men and women alike enjoy reading this magazine. I myself started subscribing a couple of years ago, and while at first I did so out of pure interest in the pictures, I grew to love its more important aspects. The core of Playboy, I can safely say, is its articles. Like everybody else I first thought that Playboy was nothing but a simple porn mag, and it is this same misconception that drives people to judge without knowing what the hell its really about. The playmates are a plus! Think of it as an informative, entertaining magazine which includes sets of nude, beautiful women from all ethnicities as an added bonus. The only downside to the magazine is the mentioning of sports. Seriously, who gives a crap? buy sportsillustrated if you want sports. Aside from that the magazine is awesome. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars I don't wannna
    like this magazine, I really don't. I know it's sexist, and preying upon all the dumb guy stereotypes that us sensitive guys deny but can't shake. And yes, I know it's really soft porn disguised as, well, ...maybe it doesn't disguise itself after all. Anyway, sign me up mom, I want my Maxim.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best "Guy" Magazines out there
    Maxim magazine has been described by my girlfriend as "Cosmo for guys". Its filled with pieces on girls,sex,gambling,beer,cars and gadgets. In short, it covers all the things that men tend to be interested in and manages to do so without taking itself too seriously, unlike some other male oriented magazines.

    The writing style is funny and the pictures of women they put in each issue will make you drool. It should be noted that this is not an "adult" magazine in the same way that Playboy is, so if you are looking for porn, you should look elsewhere. For everyone else though, this is a great magazine to buy for yourself or the favorite guy in your life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What every guy needs to know...
    Always interesting, MAXIM delivers information and humor aimed squarely at the male audience. MAXIM is a hip cross between MAD Magazine (off-the-wall humor), and a censored version of Playboy (lots of bare skin, but no naughty bits showing). The results are always side-splitting, if not informative.

    Part of the humor comes from how dumbed-down some of the information is, just to make sure men everywhere can understand what the editors are trying to say (and they flat-out tell you, "Hey, we dumbed this down so you'd get the point, stupid!"). Anything real in the way of education or enlightenment comes sprinkled with jokes, and photos of scantily clad beauties to ensure capturing the attention of the male reader.

    Besides humor, articles talk about exercise, fashion, electronics, cars, and sex.

    A men's magazine for the over-18 age group, one can expect spicy pictures, a few naughty words, and other adult-slanted humor and commentary throughout. Probably not recommended for the conservative crowd.

    3-0 out of 5 stars much better when it began, now its cheesey
    Good if all you like is T and A.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best magazine around
    Yeah some of the other magazines every once in a while will have a really hot celebrity, but FHM has consistency, and some hot celebrities every once in a while. FHM has the best articles by far, jokes are much better than the other mags as well. Overall I guess it just depends on if you're going to read the articles or just look at the pictures, but FHM almost always has both, can't say that about Maxim or Stuff.

    4-0 out of 5 stars you just might learn something...
    i admittedly haven't read this magazine for about a year now but i don't imagine it has changed a great deal so... as i am not a huge fan of the "how to make her more than just a friend" articles that turn all women into sex objects only (maxim, etc) i was quite surprised to find something more in fhm. as the above description states, fhm does like cleavage and panties to adorn the cover, but on the inside you get more than just fart jokes and mysogyny. fhm actually offers solid advice about things in mens' lives (from condoms to hairy backs and ears) without assuming we only care about another notch on the bedpost.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just more clever than the rest
    I was wary at first of another men's mag, but FHM is just better than the others. The articles are funny and clever. Maxim's seems to just keep printing the same thing over and over again with a different picture. I cancelled Maxim, I'll stick with FHM.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not that Great
    The Articles are Fairly obvious but they are better then that dribble of Maxim I will rate some things in these things
    Articles 2 Pictures 8 Specials 6 Enjoyable 8 Lasting 6
    Overall=32/50 wich is good enough for 3 stars but there are some good issues like there Top 100 Hottest girls that is good for those 3 Mags those are what they do.Not for everyone

    5-0 out of 5 stars almost as good as maxim
    this and maxim r about the same just maxim is more funny."maxim" is the best then "fhm" then "stuff".although fhm isnt the best a few of them r better then maxim so it's definitely worth buyin. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it used to be
    I don't know if it's that my weight lifting has taken me to more of an advanced stage, but I no longer find myself as eager to dive into "Men's Health" each month as I used to be. The magazine has changed somewhat over the years. Sure it still has some good articles about training, and so on. In fact, it has just about everything "Playboy" has going for it, except the nude pictorials and fiction. But "Men's Health" has become a little bland. It is not aimed at hardcore weight lifters, and often of late it seems to be aimed at people in the upper echelon of subscribers, pushing high-priced gear and clothing that someone who works in the real world may not be able to buy. The magazine's publishers used to point with pride to the fact that they were based in rural Pennsylvania and as a result in touch with the average man. You don't get that feeling anymore. Also, some of what they tell you has to be taken with a grain of salt. Little training tips they'll drop in may have merit, but need to be part of a much larger picture. Doing a squat will help get larger legs, but there's more to it than that, and sometimes in the interest of brevity, the magazine falls short. Still, you'll find a lot of interest in each issue. Here's hoping it will one day be a five-star magazine again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
    MAGAZINE REVIEW:

    The magazine has plenty of good articles on health, exercise, nutrition, sex, etc.

    This is one of the few magazines that I can actually read from cover to cover; it has tips on how to fight off sickness (i.e. cold, flu, etc.), how to exercise--I've found out what I've been doing wrong in my workouts as a result, and how to please a woman.

    If you're interested work-out tips like I am, this magazine offers some but not enough... For extensive work-out tips, I suggest you go get "Exercise&Health"; in my opinion, "Exercise&Health" has the best work-out tips, and the magazine has lots of them! For general health, however, I recommend "Men's Health".

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    I don't think this is the BEST men's magazine out there, but I think the magazine is pretty decent. I paid about $12 for a year's subscription through a magazine wholesaler and I think it's worth that much, maybe even more. Definitely worth a try.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent second choice
    There was no way I could get a subscription to Playgirl without my roommates catching on, so I settled for Men's Health. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but it is close enough, and I can leave it around the apartment without arousing (no pun intended) suspicion. Heck, the other guys even read it occasionally. If you're in my situation, you'll find Men's Health to be right up your alley. I just have one bone to pick with the editors: too much black and white photography! Where are the full-color abs? Spring for some color, gents, it's the 21st century.

    2-0 out of 5 stars sad to agree with "sad demise"
    I wish it wasn't so, but it is. "Sad demise" hit the nail on the head. I used to be a faithful subscriber and even gave annual subscriptions to my 2 sons and son-in-law for Christmas. One by one they have asked me to drop or change the subscription. While there are still a few worthwhile items in each issue, the erosion of value is swift. Dittos on Greg Gutfeld too, I really miss his contributions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classy yet spicy
    This is the ideal men's magazine for women, but as I am male, I shall address only this half of the population:
    Esquire flourishes with a perfect balance of worldly wisdom and professional taste. The reader, for a few delectable moments, is a cosmopolitan elite. Esquire respects its readership, talks as from one expert to another, because it simply does not pay to insult intelligence. If you think Wired gets a bit too excited, if the New Yorker spends equal time in your hands and on the coffee table, if Maxim seems tawdry though witty, buy (do not borrow, as you will inevitably cut out a column on ties) a copy of Esquire, try it out, see if the woman in your life likes it (she will, and she will likely buy you a subscription). Note that alcohol and tobacco claim a bit more space than some of us (er, I) may care for.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Writing and Well Worth the Subscription
    Esquire is the first Gentleman's magazine that I've subscribed to. I've read various issues of most of the others, but I wanted something that I wouldn't be embarassed to carry around with me. So far, I've been very happy with the content of Esquire. There's a little bit of the girly pics, but it's not overwhelming. Their customer service has been great.

    4-0 out of 5 stars the classic for the modern young man
    esquire has this great niche: information for young men with a kick. nothing like playboy's kick, but it tends to share some of the same great things with the playboy of old, including high end objects and gadgets like stereos and cars, fashion, health and relationship information, and fiction. combine this with journalism and you've got a pretty good magazine. and it's reasonably tame enough you can share it with your girlfriend or wife without getting her upset.

    sometimes i prefer it when esquire has more journalism or fiction and fewer 2 page fluff pieces, but it's still better than most of the alternatives.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classier than most, and more readable, too.
    I love this magazine. It has great articles on all things culture; movies, books, music, politics, clothing, business/money, models, actors, business men/women, everything imaginable. Truly a great magazine.

    Although it doesn't seem quite possible, I even prefer the British version, well... I love 'em both. One of my top favorite magazines.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best mag I've found
    I think that, compared to other men's magazines or any other magazine for that matter, Esquire does the best job. It's the New Yorker if it were funny, GQ if it were smarter and funnier and more informative. It just feels like every month when I get my issue that there's something very important and special in there. I love the fashion portfolios they do (I usually hate that stuff) because they use real people and not models, and their music critic is usually right on target and backs up his arguments unlike alot of ciritcs out there. I love that 10 Things A Man Should Know About Women page too. overall, a great read every month. And cheap! ... Read more

    I had thought about getting this magazine for the men in my house but after reading the reviews thus far I decided I will not. With reviews saying things like check out the pictures of women in see through panties... and then about this being a good book to have around the house... well maybe... if you are a single man. Thanks for the reviews... they were very helpful in me making a decision not to get this magazine.

    From Amazon.com

    The "GQ look" is synonymous with classic cool and sophistication, and despite a recent outburst of trendy magazines (think Maxim and FHM) vying for the attention of young professional males, the steeped-in-tradition monthly GQ carries on without missing a beat. Yes, there's more décolletage gracing the cover than there used to be, but GQ continues to supply enough cultural commentary, celebrity profiles, features, and style guides to keep the modern man in touch with what's going on in the world from month to month.

    GQ's ideal reader is probably one who actually might be able to afford any of the high-end suits, shoes, and watches featured among the countless ads packed between the covers. Though the average reader might enjoy scanning a fashion spread about steakhouses entitled "How to Dress for a Porterhouse" and reading articles like "50 Ways to Blow Your Bonus," it's unlikely that such folly holds much practical advice. Literary editor Walter Kirn keeps short fiction on display, and Alan Richman's writing on food and dining out is always entertaining, even when he comes across as borderline cranky. Two regular Q&A features, "The Style Guy" and "Dr. Sooth," run the gamut from when it's appropriate to wear a straw hat to problems in the bedroom.

    4-0 out of 5 stars GQ: A Stylish Cut Above the Usual Men's Mag
    Unlike Maxim, Stuff, FHM and the rest of the new breed of men's magazines, GQ is in a class of its own, with a more style-conscious, upscale leaning than its upstart competitors. [It tends to be heftier than those mags, as well: Special issues, like the 'Men of the Year' annual, weigh in at as many as 500 pages, which- despite an abundance of ads- includes a wealth of interesting stories and photos]. Unlike its more glib offspring, which tend to rely on short, candy-ish items on sexy women, GQ focuses more on men of style and substance. Investigative reports by experienced, skilled journalists also separate GQ from other fashion-oriented magazines, which are often visually appealing but short on journalistic content. With its consistently strong photos, layout and design, GQ is handsomely ahead of the pack. For those less interested in fashion and more interested in journalism, Esquire is a good alternative choice. And readers after flashy, voyeuristic flair might be best served elsewhere, but GQ readers will be rewarded for their restraint with the occasional raunchy- but refined- spread. GQ seems aimed at the over-30 male, but the mag's assortment of model males apparently appeals to women as well, since they seem to be well represented in the magazine's readership. Overall, GQ is a stylish, elegant read that stands apart from its newer, splashier, offspring. A good choice for the style-conscious male reader.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The men's magazine for "men of letters"....
    GQ is still the definitive men's style magazine, but it's also much more. The monthly mixology column is slowly helping me build a bartenders guide that is informative as well as useful, The Style Guy is keeping me from looking like an idiot, and the fiction and features are keeping me full of interesting stories to help me sing for my supper. The bottom line is this: if you want a magazine with guy advice... but don't want something as snarky or "hip" as Maxim or FHM then GQ has just the kind of class you're looking for.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Actually about 2 1/2 stars
    The style in this magazine is incredible; it's expensive and very fashionable, with the occasional cheap item to cater to the peasant reader (i.e., everyone).

    That said, the magazine is rife with flaws. Snobbish east-coast writing, awful music that is lauded for no reason other than its anonymity, still worse book reviews of Norman Mailer-style authors, shrill articles by naive hacks, and so on.

    The clothes are great, but buy with caution.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most renowned magazines.
    They really seem to have turned around with their new editor in chief, who came on board in the September issue. They have some cool stories, even if some of them do get continued in the back, but that just means (depending on how far along you are), that you have the rest of the mag to look forward to. I dont really like any of the style tips and the clothes, and depending on how big the issue is, you'll have to trudge through about 30 pages of ads, before u get to the first page of the TOC. It's nice to see an Editor's column (or page) now, even though this EIC seems to be just a little too arrogant. Like every mature men's mag, they review CD's and books. I'd say 8 out of 12 issues are usually thick, and I'm not sure if the September issue (their last monstrously huge issue) will be like that this year or not, Overall, it's still very interesting. I love the font they now use on the cover and in a couple of sections of the mag. Very tech like.

    3-0 out of 5 stars not worth it
    Always a great magazine but do to the fact the subscription magazines are nearly 1/4th the size of the newstand editions, Im giving 1/4th the stars. Theres no cologne ads and getting it a day earlier then the stores really isnt that important to me. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars For guys who don't have time to read a 1-2 page articles
    Stuff (like Maxim, Gear, etc.) burst into popularity in the late '90's. If you're looking for in depth articles and significant cultural insight, you've come to the wrong place. This magazine targets itself at male Gen X-ers with attention spans that barely outlast a MacDonald's commercial. If you want glossy pics of scantily-clad young women celebs, snippets on hip trends, and comics with juvenile pranks and practical jokes, this magazine is for you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars These Guys Are Nuts!
    What's interesting is that this is definitely more of a humor magazine than anything else, although the humor aspect is not made apparent until you start actually reading the articles. Then is becomes obvious that everything in it is totally cracked! Nuts! Flipped! Twisted! and Insane!

    There have been many times I've burst into fits of laughter at the off-the-wall and unexpected humor displayed in their CD reviews, articles, editorials, interviews, and photospreads. I recently read a review of Metallica's "St. Anger" that had me rolling on the floor laughing! I read it at work during a break and created such a ruckus with laughter that I had no choice but to read the review to the people at work, since they were so curious what was tickling my funny bone.

    Also, I think it's a good idea that they feature quality photospreads of non-naked women. The pictures are great and nobody should be offended.

    Plus, they do review the latest electronic gizmos and "stuff", again, with their funny and warped sense of humor. Nobody could say these guys take themselves too seriously, or are in any way, manner or form pompous. On the contrary, they're more Monty Python than Hugh Hefner.

    I'm surprised how much I've enjoyed this crazy magazine!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Snarky
    I've at various times subscribed to Stuff, Maxim, and FHM magazines. Stuff was the only one I ended up not resubscribing to. It has its moments and the photography is fine. I would describe it as Maxim's younger brother. It's whole attitude seems to be like the younger sibling of the popular kid in high school, and this kid then tries to be hip by being just as funny, etc., but it is forced and very juvenile. It just is snarky and predictable after awhile. On the other hand, I'm not 21 anymore either, and maybe if I was in my 20's I would find this the height of humor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I Wish I was Thirteen Again
    Stuff is a sister publication to Maxim magazine. It is similar to Maxim in several ways. Both feature a significant share of silly articles and questionable writing abilities by the journalists who contribute to each issue. And, of course, both focus on women and sex to help them sell.

    With Stuff, the reader is treated to approximately 150 pages of mindless drivel, with goofy monthly departments like "A Guy and His Stuff", which features a male celebrity who describes some of his favorite possessions, and the "Back page Activity Sheet", which features a puzzle of some sort, like a word search or maze. As you can see from these two examples, Stuff is not exactly an intellectually stimulating magazine. It is aimed at a young male crowd- even younger than the target market of Maxim.

    Most guys who purchase Stuff do so for the photos of near- naked women. These photos can be found throughout the magazine, from the cover and on through to the end. The interviews with some of these celebrities are about as useless as they could possibly be, with most of the conversation in the interviews geared toward personal relationships and feelings about any number of shallow topics.

    If you like to reminisce about your days in junior high school, the Stuff might be a good choice of magazines for you. But if you prefer at least an inkling of intelligence, then I recommend passing on Stuff. There isn't much substance here at all, and most of what you read will leave you shaking your head and rolling your eyes. The magazine's primary audience is the 16 to 22 age group and even many in the target group will find it idiotic. For everyone else, Stuff is a total waste of time. Almost no brainpower is dedicated to the writing of this magazine.

    This magazine has had it's ups and downs. I think they're on the downswing right now. The last three issuses have been pretty bland. Do not look for well written or insightful articles here. This magazine is your basic college dorm humor that tries sometimes too hard to be hip. My advice to the editors and writers of this magazine is to be yourselves before you become Rolling Stone. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars I quickly grew out of this.
    I remember back in the late 80s and early 90s this was actually very good but now its just gotten boring.I just dont like it as much as I used to all the issues today seem the same to each other and I really dont understand the rave reviews.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Okay if you can handle it.
    Count me in the camp that thinks hardcore pornography is offensive.Very offensive.I used to look at these until I decided they were disturbing and not worth my time.Playboy is much less offensive to me.Maybe Im homophobic and dont like looking at it because it makes me feel like a bisexual or something or maybe its the words they use.I just find it trashy and dont read it or even look at it anymore.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hot, Sexy and Unforgettable Women!
    Once you get started it seems that Penthouse is the magazine that you can't give up! More of our customers are "hooked" on Penthouse than any other magazines as far as buying adult men's magazines for sheer pleasure ....... not celeb issues, not for the articles. Just for themselves, for the beautiful ladies with the hot,sexy bodies.

    Back issues can still be found on Amazon and other sites, no need to miss out if you missed out!

    Penthouse may have beautiful women but I think Penthouse is hotter.If you ask me the women in this magazine look better.Maybe its because its more explicit or maybe its just that they really do look better no matter what.Penthouse is my favorite magazine because it has the hottest women in the world.What surprises me is that Penthouse has the better looking women but ... remains more popular.Maybe its because it has pictures of nude celebrities but Penthouse is better.I think Ive said enough for now.Theyre both great magazines and you should own both of them if youre a straight or bisexual male. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars People are so quick to hop on the bandwagon
    I know you're already dying to give me an unhelpful vote because you think I'm hating but please read the review first and listen to my insight.

    Yes, yes, we all know that The Source Magazine has gone to crap since Benzino began to exert his influence on it. I haven't bought an issue of that mag since 2001. When the Source went to crap a lot of people turned to XXL. Admit, most of you turned to this magazine after Eminem's lashing out against the Source. Ironically, he himself was dissing this magazine back in 2000 on "I'm Just Marshall Mathers". Now for a while I turned to XXL as well. Around late 2003 XXL began to disappoint me. Let me tell you why.

    By now it's no secret that XXL is boosting up Shady/Aftermath artists in their magazine in return for the increased sales that Eminem has brought them. When the Source became biased I turned to XXL because I thought that it was the closest thing to a fair and balanced magazine that hip-hop had left. Well, they've proven me wrong. XXL has had Shady/Aftermath artists on 4 of their last 6 covers. If that isn't bias then I don't know what is. Not only that, they proceeded to call Eminem the best rapper living on one of their covers. Now I love Eminem but I know, XXL knows, Eminem knows, and anyone who started listening to hip-hop before 1999 knows he isn't the best artist alive. That's blatant disrespect to the several artists who have recorded classic material in the past like Rakim, Kane, Nas, KRS, Jay-Z, and Outkast. Come on now XXL, you know you were wrong right there. Not only that, they worked with MTV2 and brought a list of the top 22 mcs of all time. If you've seen that list then you know it was a joke. If I remember correctly they put Eminem in the top 5. I love Em but he's not a top 5 mc XXL. Top 5 of right now? Yes, of all time? Hell no.

    Well it seems like our acclaimed magazines couldn't resist taking sides in this XXL/Aftermath vs. Source-Benzino/Murder Inc. war. It's just a sad occurance. It's a true reflection of the times. Not only has the quality of hip-hop music been drastically lowered but now our magazines are in dire straits as well. Hopefully one of them will get their ish together for the sake of the readers and forget about this pointless label war.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Subscribe at your own risk!
    The content of this magazine is equal to any other contemporary hip-hop mag. But, I didn't receive all my issues. I got about 8 out of 12. That's just not cool.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the Sauce?Probably....but..
    XXL has some good moments as a magazine,but how many times are they going to put Dead Rappers and Fitty cent on their cover?No disrespect to the dead,but it has been 6,7 years for since the deaths of Biggie and Pac.How about puttin some of the pioneers like Kane and Rakim on your cover.That is not gonna happen unless they both sign with Def Jam or Rockafella.The magazines treat Pac like Elvis.It's all about the chedder.
    I like the Love/Hate issues.I like the Eye Candy,but that's a selling point.I like "step your game up" but, sometimes i think it might be personal.The Editor thinks he can flow,and has a personal verbal battle with the Sauce's Editor.Crazy,right?The Reviews are good,but sometimes when i see an artist get an XL,i associate it with the Sauce's 4 and half mics.XXl done gave quite a few XL's.If that's equal to 4 and a half mics,then that's foul because there is not that many exceptional albums out there right now.It's a good mag,but this monopoly has to cease.Bring back Egotrip,Elliot.PS,Speaking of personal,zino and Mays are trying to ruin Eminem's career by calling him a gay racist.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine, I can't get enough of this.
    Now, I won't deny that XXL jumps on every bandwagon there is out there for rap music, but they can sure write good articles and interesting stories and still keep it fun to read and look at. It's filled with pictures, has great features that no other Hip-Hop magazine can offer. It definately beats out it's "competitor" The Source by a long shot. It does attack rappers every here and there but they got love for everyone in the game. It is mostly mainstream rap so if Hip-Hop is dead like a reviewer claimed it is, it isn't this magazines faukt, blame it on the scene itself and the bigshots behind the labels. Great magazine, you can learn alot about these rappers and rap in general through reading this magazine. A must read for rap fans who are curious about the rap game and what happens inside of it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Monthly Motivation
    Runner's world is a very traditional magazine with geared towards mostly a middle-aged audience. The authors manage to give the same advice every month and make it sound different. That may be one of the things that makes this magazine so motivational. I keep reading about people who have run every day for the last fifty years or who run in 30 below weather, and I wonder what's keeping me off the roads.

    The Rave Run two page spread photographs are lovely. They each show a runner in a really cool environment with a quote. I have some of them hanging on my wall. I get especially motivated by the one of a man running through the woods when the trees are coated with ice and the ground blanketed with snow. It looks so beautiful, who wouldn't want to go out and run. The ask the expert or Q&A section has the most diverse and informative information from month to month mostly because the questions come from readers and the answers come for a variety of experts. The nutrition section isn't particularly useful. The science seems simplified to the point that it isn't exactly true, and the suggested menu for one of the carbohydrate dinners starts out with 1 cup broiled swordfish along with five or six other things; not really practical in my opinion.

    Runner's World has a nice coverage of racing events past (results) and future (racing calendars), and my hometown of Boulder, CO is mentioned somewhere at least once per issue :). Runner's World encourages everyone to be a winner even if he or she doesn't finish first. It is full of tips for beginners just staring to run and more advance information about training for seasoned amateurs. Some of the information is useful and some is not, but there is enough useful information to make reading worthwhile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Real Motivator and Educator
    I've been reading Runner's World for about three years now. It seems that whenever my motivation hits an all time low another magazine will end up in my mailbox. After reading half of the magazine I am forced to put on my running shoes and hit the streets.

    There are many educational benefits I receive from these magazines. I enjoy their training tips to help me improve my running time. I enjoy their list of races in the back of issue so I can plan what I want to run next in my geographic area.

    Most importantly, I highly appreciate the safety tips that are included. Running can be very hard on your body, as most of my cross country team learned in high school. This should become standard reading for high school students. I wish my coach had gone through an issue every month with us, highlighting how to run safely while diminishing run times.

    If you run, get this magazine. If you don't run but would like to, visit their educational web page to get an idea how to start and then subcribe to the magazine so, like me, you are reminded to get off your duff and hit the streets.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Only one issue's experience
    I bought the issue because I was told there was an article about beginning runners training for their first half marathon. The article was mentioned on the cover. It turned out to be a fluff piece giving reasons why it was better to run a half marathon than a full one for your first long race. I didn't find a lot more depth. Motivational, some general ideas, but I didn't come away with a lot of technical information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Your Best Friend
    Sometimes you need a friend to help you out the door and to motivate you to start your running program. This magazine did exactly that for me. Along with its thorough web-site, runnersworld.com, I started a running program that took me from running two minutes at a time to running a 5K (3miles) in twenty-two minutes in only fifteen weeks. Unlike many other magazines, this one does not over burden you with excessive advertisements and random space fillers. All articles are helpful and cover a broad spectrum of practical and entertaining subjects. The best magazine I have ever encountered, you won't be able to put it down!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Education, motivation, how to and information
    Doesn't get much better than this. This magazine knows its focus and cuts right to the chase. Nothing extraneous here, solely about running. Great shoe reviews and good how-to especially for beginners. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this for the man in your life...you won't regret it!!
    Ladies, if you *heart* Lucky magazine and find yourself reading from cover to cover, your husband will love this magazine that is devoted to just "GUY" stuff. I ordered it off their website without even looking at an issue after my husband told me about it. They even have cute little stickers (like Lucky) that your Guy can mark on things that he likes.

    The first issue came today and it's filled with lots of Manly-Man things. Electronics (check), Cars (check), Clothes (check), Personal hygiene (check, check, check) and so much more.

    The letters to the editors from readers are hillarious, one in particular where a reader sends his thanks for not using the color Pink not one time. :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars breath of fresh air
    What's up with Maxim, FHM, Stuff and all those other men's magazines getting raunchier and raunchier? Even Esquire has gone down that road. I've noticed that the fatter, more acne-ridden, socially inapt a man is - the more likely he is to read those types of magazines. Anyway, Cargo seems OK - they don't rely on dimestore eroticism to sell copies. They don't need to.

    I'm a happily married male in the fashion/entertainment industry in SoCal. This is a magazine that doesn't disrespect my wife or the home/life I am attempting to build with her.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of the best
    I truly love this magazine! It's only been the second issue, but I just love it. I read it cover to cover, and I enjoy every feature, every article, every... evrything. This magazine shows you the top in tech, mens fashion, cologne, cars, wines/liquor, culture, and everything else. It is written so well that it's like a novel you can't put down.

    If you are a true fan of living life as best as possible and "your money well spent" then give Cargo a try.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine for the 18-30 crowd
    You can't deny that most men's publications are either pseudo-highbrow (GQ, Esquire), frat-boy targeted (FHM, Maxim, Stuff), or bloated with bad sex advice (yes, Men's Health). Unfortunately, for years these have been the only publications available that show the latest designers, electronics, automotive, et cetera, but usually confined to a mere 10% of each issue. That is where CARGO comes in. The writers don't pretend to be Cambridge graduates with uber-sophisticated tastes like the hack writers of GQ; sensible reviews are given (for instance, the premier issue has several suits and, among other criteria by which the suits are rated, a comprehensive "body build" guide let's you know which is best for you) in place of meaninglessly arcane SAT vocabulary. In sum, its a great publication that (I hope) will make it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I used to really enjoy MJ
    Don't get me wrong, occasionally there are issues I still read cover to cover, but it seems as though MJ has gone through a change lately. Gone is the focus of travel and fantastic adventure writing. Now the focus seems to be health, fitness and diet. I used to buy Men's Health magazine for those topics. If I wanted that focus I would continue to buy MH. There is no longer a consistent reason to read MJ on a regular basis anymore. Man, I miss the old MJ!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Longtime Reader and Subscriber
    I've been reading Men's Journal since the first issue. I've always enjoyed its mix of content. MJ interviews a wide range of interesting individuals. Over the years I've incorporated some of the workout tips from MJ's fitness pages into my workout routine. I especially enjoy reading the product reviews. The travel recommendations are always well written, if not sometimes beyond the budget of most readers (myself included!). Overall, Men's Journal offers a great mix of well written content.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting
    The main articles are pretty interesting. I wish the rest of the articles would have more detail though. I like this magazine, it covers many subjects and is fun to read. I think it has more room to grow covering many more guys stuff like home repair and hunting. I look forward to continuing with my subscription.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time.
    This magazine might be good if you were wealthy enough not to have to work, had time to work out four hours a day, had your own chef, could go on vacation six months out of the year, or could afford (or cared) about fashion. Otherwise don't bother. They sometimes have a decent or interesting article but they are so few and far between it is not worth it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A little too "yuppy" for the average guy...
    But, Men's Journal is acceptable for the guy that dreams of a carefree, debt-free, toned-body existence.

Readers will also discover the latest styles and trends from cutting-edge designers and fashion moguls to hot spots in New York City. Occasionally referred to as Cosmopolitan for men, Details presents a playful, sexy side while maintaining its classy, sophisticated style, giving males a chic, refined magazine of their very own. --Alison Gubser ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Change of heart
    Initially, I had doubts about Details. It wasn't so much that I had a specific complaint about Details, but rather I had held a mostly negative view of fashion magazines in general, which I view ideologically as "commercial" and lacking "meaning." Yeah, I know it sounds foolish now, but it seem to make sense to be at that time. However, after actually reading several issues of Details, I have become impressed with it. The writing in Details is cool, almost in an unhurried kind of way, but is also remarkably direct and to the point. One rarely finds reporting this good in other fashion magazines. Also of equal, or perhaps better, quality and sophistication is the fashion photography. Details features consistently excellent photos of the newest trends in men's fashion. But Details is not about any kind of men's clothing; while GQ's trademark is more bourgeois in orientation, Details features styles that appeal more to the person with a bohemian sense of fashion. The album, movie, book reviews - which was another aspect that I was immensely impressed with - also feature items that are mostly along the lines of bohemian taste. Overall Details is an excellent magazine, perhaps the best of its kind, and I recommend it without reservation.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good alternative
    I read through some of the other customers' reviews here and I was downright surprised. In a day when most of the people areound me are reading Maxim (which seems to be nothing more than a childish Playboy wanna-be), I find great comfort in the fact that magazines like Details exist. I don't care if the magazine doesn't have pictures of semi-nude women on every page. I enjoy being able to flip from an article about a current political issue on one page, to an interview with John Cleese on the next, and then to a feature on how to deal with going gray early. Details does a better job of treating me as a whole person, not as a frat-boy ball of hormones.

    It may have a lot of ads, but probably no more than GQ. I paid [$$$] for my subscription, so I'm not going to complain.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Awful content
    I've read a lot of bizarre front page type on this magazine. I bought one issue, and was very disappointed with the content. I should've known better...I mean, Nick Lachey was on the cover!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Be So Quick To Judge!
    Don't base your opinion on one article, yes, maybe it was not politically correct. I really feel the editorial staff was not trying to be malicious towards any culture or race. We are all entitled to our opinions in one aspect or another. The magazine has a lot to offer in reading material & content. I find it to be comparable to COSMOPOLITAN, only for men. The price is very reasonable for the product you get. What else can you get for a $1.00 an issue? It has not turned into FHM, MAXIUM, STUFF, or some of the other sexist publications on the market. I think everyone should give it another chance, read it with an open mind, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Details- Way Out of Line
    In April 2004, one of the 'Detail' writers, Whitney McNally, put together a pretty shocking piece in which a picture of an (...) male was displayed along with numbered/itemized comparisons between being a stereotypical (...) and being a stereotypical (...) person. It included a number of extremely crude remarks of the lowest kind. But don't take my word for it. Find it on the web and decide for yourself whether or not 'Details' magazine is racist and homophobic. It's one thing for a single writer to lose their way and write something stupid. But it's another for the magazine's editors to allow it to be published from coast-to-coast.
    This allows you to see what lies beneath Details'glamor,'sense of style' and their sleek urban offices. And it's ugly.

    Whitney McNally and her editorial staff have got to go. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag
    I thought some readers might benefit from the perspective of a beginner/intermediate weight trainer. I use this magazine for little more than getting ideas for new exercises so that my routine doesn't get stale. In that sense, Muscle and Fitness is a treasure trove of information on new and interesting ways to work out. Some of the routines are inappropriate for beginners or even intermediate lifters, but the principles remain the same. There is a great emphasis on proper form and a general disapproval of lifting heavier weights than you are capable. Exercises are well described with examples of proper form and thorough explanations provided by professionals. As a previous reviewer said, these professionals sometimes contradict one another, but as in any profession, opinions differ and all that can be done is to present the information and allow the reader to judge what is best for them.

    Having said that, there is bad with the good. There are an enourmous number of multi-page ads for supplements, often posing as articles. Some of these are of dubious benefit and often make outrageous claims. 90% of these are useless for the general user (I have no interest in spending outrageous amounts of money to build muscle while I sleep) though I imagine a professional would be interested in anything that might help them gain a slight competitive edge. In my opinion there are too many ads which tend to distract from genuine articles. There is also great emphasis on building mass and losing fat - if you are thinking about subscribing to this magazine you should be far more concerned about the "muscle" aspect than the "fitness".

    So, in conclusion, there is some good and some bad. You may be better off just buying two or three of these magazines if you are only looking for ideas to add variety to your workouts. After a while the articles start to repeat themselves.

Because I work for a living and can't plan 6 meals a day and hours in the gym like these guys/gals do-I want a fitness magazine tailored to the working man, not the gym guy without a job guy. Also, it seems like a lot of this magazine is advertising for protein powders and supplements.
    If you don't have a job, plan on spending your daily routines around the gym so you can get big and grotesque like these fitness models, then this is the magazine for you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off!
    I'm referring to the U.K version of this magazine but my sentiments are the same as that written by most of the other reviewers. This mag has deteriorated so much over the last few years. I recent;y discouraged my son from reading this magazine as it almost resembled a soft porn mag! Also, if you were to follow the routines in this magazine, you will just end up overtrained and frustrated with your lack of results. Why? the rotuines listed here only work if you have 6 days a week and two hours a day to train. and it also requires that you live on supplements! Most of the 'champs' feautured in this magazine are just paid to say they use the supplements. in reality they are all surgically enhanced and are on large amounts of anabolic hormones. There is no way the routines in this mag will work for typical people. please look elsewhere!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mostly Ads and Freaks of Nature
    Since the recent decline of Men's Fitness, there really isnt't a reliable, realistic montly men's workout magazine. I picked up a copy of Muscle and Fitness, just for some workout tips and ideas, as I remembered when I read the magazine in the 80's that it was quite good.
    Now it's quite full of ads.
    From the same 4 or 5 companies.
    As an experiment I ripped out every page in the the magazine that had ads on both sides. I ended up ripping out 90 pages.
    90 pages!
    Out of a magazine with 266 pages.
    A full one third of this magazine is ads that fool people into taking crappy, expensive supplements so that they will end up looking like Ahnold (who has joined the magazine as Executive Editor).
    You'd be better off by picking up one book for workout (like Body Sculping For Men or Women), one book for nutrition (like Eat to Live by Fuhrman) and save your money and your time.
    You get a great looking body by eating healthy and working out regularly, not by gulping down supplements popping pills.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Sham advice!!
    Hi, i've been browsing this magazine on and off for a number of years now and all i can say is this magaizine is designed to make a quick commercial killing. I mean i saw an article back in 97 i think which said- Big arms- the surest way to get them. but if u pick up a current issue you will see it rehashed again! This is fairly typical for almost all the articles. Plus 75% of the magazine is full of ads for useless supplements mostly from the publisher of the mag. Plus any reasonably intelligent person knows that all the'champs' feautured in this mag are gentic freaks who would grow on any routine and are loaded with every steroid known. but this is never stated anywhere in the magazine. plus these guys are termed healthy, this is bull as almost all these 'champs' have severe health problems and some of them have died recently due to severe drug abuse. bottom line is this, there is very little to be gained from this magazine from a muscle building point of view! In all fairness they do have good articles about improving you sex life and some decent recipes but you don't have to read this mag for that now do you?
    some reviewers have recommended books by stuart mcRobert which i strongly endorse if you are serious about building size and strength safely and sensibly. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars join the guys in the razor lounge but the party is over
    razor was more than just a magazine -- it was a way of life. unlike the other mags for guys where you skim through it -- this was a magazine to actually read. I bought my first copy at the airport and the entire magazine kept me engrossed during my flight but razor has gone downhill since then. The issue I read had me inspired by rich botto's publisher's letter that said not to conform. alan spencer and j. rentilly both wrote superb articles. the fashion layouts and video game reviews were like they were written by friends who were telling the truth, not trying to sell stuff. I really loved razor but the magazine has changed and gotten sloppy so i'm no longer subscribing to it and am getting esquire which is better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Razor is pretty sharp
    I saw the magazine at a buddy's house, who subscribes, and asked if I could borrow it.

    I loved the article about Terry Gilliam by J. Rentilly. I'm a huge fan of Monty Python and Gilliam's films. His struggle to get The Man Who Killed Don Quixote made was inspiring and maddening. But Gilliam hasn't given up or lost his sense of humor.

    Speaking of humor, the "role reversal" article by Alan Spencer was laugh out loud funny and very perceptive. It's so timely especially with all the macho posturing by those who want to lead us into a war with Iraq. Maybe the tough women on tv the author writes about will kick some sense into these chickenhawks who have never served in the military... unlike Lee Marvin, the male role model in the article.

    I also thought "the first word" column by Richard J. Botto set the right tone and point of view for the "role reversal" piece. This column was written simply and humorously... and is much better than most columns by publishers of men's magazines.

    The only column I hated was "on the edge" by Sean Carter. It was derivative, not very perceptive and lacked wit. His sports knowledge is superficial at best. Being a pro hoops fan, I've read better pieces about NBA lawbreakers in the Chicago Tribune, NY Times and Sports Illustrated months ago. No doubt Carter read the same pieces and did a bad rip-off.

    But overall, I think Razor is a cool magazine and look forward to reading the next issue.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best in Men's Entertainment Bar None
    I have read my share of men's magazines, but for my money the best on the market is Razor. I have been following Razor for a while and while it has gotten better by the month, the July issue convinced me to be a subscriber for good.

    I have read some reviews stating that Razor is not Maxim or FHM. That's true, it's not. And thank god for that. In my opinion, once you read Maxim once, there's no need to buy another issue. It's the same thing month after month.

    Razor is simply a more sophisticated, more informative, more balanced view at the lifestyle of the average, mature guy.

    The July issue, for example, hits that balance perfectly. There's the guide to Las Vegas, which covers where to stay, where to eat, the best pools for scenery and the recipes for feature cocktails at various hotels. There is a scathing, yet hysterical look at PETA by Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller fame which follows in the same vein of an earlier terrific expose on the Church of Scientology. Jillette's article is a pleasure to read. There's a look by Stephen Applebaum on Hollywood's marketing of violence to children and how Hollywood may have learned nothing from the Columbine High School shootings. Again, a terrific read that is not at all obtuse (See GQ). One more feature is for all the people who love those HBO autopsy shows, a nice piece that takes you into the lab. Again, well written and informative.

    On a more fun note (balance), there is a look at six of the top convertibles on the market today. And this is where Razor shines as the choices range from reasonable for any working man, to luxurious for those who are fortunate enough to be able to purchase such a vehicle. The sex advice article is about where to find opportnities to meet the fairer sex; it is funny and enjoyable without being lewd.

    Two fashion features consist of summer wear for day and night. Again, the fashions are reasonable and realistic for any working man.

    Finally, there are the girls - (they are part of a man's lifestyle too right?) - but Razor presents them in a completely different light than the Maxim's of this world. Beautifully filmed and without that fake airbrushed look, Talisa Soto shines. There is another beach shoot (fashion) that is just perfect.

    Throw in advice on style, travel, wines, finance and more and you can see why it's my opinion that Razor is the most balanced men's magazine out there. It's a magazine that I am proud to have around when company stops by. Even my girlfriend is a big fan.

    For the record, I am 28 and an entrepreneur.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Razor On The Rebound
    Razor lost its way for awhile but I read that the editor has been replaced and the publisher is taking a more hands on role and adding more of his lifestyle to the publication. That's a good thing. I hope some of the star contributors like A.J. Benza and Alan Spencer return more regularly.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Plain Odd
    Okay first off, anyone comparing this magazine to FHM, Maxim, or Stuff clearly doesn't subscribe to any of those. This magazine isn't as entertaining as those. This magazine is more for the "metrosexual" type who is more interested in Men's fashion or the art scene. The articles are sophisticated and something you'd find in Rolling Stones, rather then Playboy or Maxim. Don't be fooled by the cover with an attractive actress or model, this magazine is art not humor/leisure. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Is this what your really looking for?
    Flex is a great magazine. I'm not afraid to say it, but what I am afraid to say is that every person in this magazine is on about a thousand dollar a month steroid budget. I liked the training tips given, however, and I think that the routines are well-rounded, and give people much more muscle. If you are an incredibly intense musclehead, then this magazine is for you. If you are intrested in looking good rather then having "sick" biceps then try a magazine like Muscle and Fitness, a more fitness diversified magazine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Happy 20th anniversary Flex!
    Having been in the Iron Game for nearly 40 years, I have seen the Weider magazines transition from Mr. America, All American Athlete, Muscle Power, Muscle Builder, and Vigor to Muscle & Fitness and Flex.

    I bought the very first issue of Flex. For the record, Chris Dickerson was on the cover and wow has Flex evolved since that first issue.

    And so has the sport of bodybuilding. Physiques have gotten bigger but I am not sure they have gotten better. In my mind, Arnold is still the greatest of all time based on size, symetry, shape and muscularity.

    I enjoyed the piece on Lou Ferrigno as well. It is almost a shame that he got the role of the Incredible Hulk which curtailed his bodybuilding career but I am not sure that Big Lou would have gone much further than he did. Robby Robinson handily defeated Ferrigno at the MASTERS MR. O in 1993/1994 and would have taken Louie in the 70's. So would have Columbo and Zane.

    In another regard, Serge Nubret is listed as a darkhorse and squeezed Lou into third place behind Arnold with the Black Panther Nubret a close second. Are the publishers aware that Serge Nubret won his height class in the 1960 IFBB Mr. Universe narrowly losing to the legendary Chuck Sipes and defeating AAU Mr. America/NABBA Mr. Universe Ray Schaeffer? Or that Nubret finished 2nd in the 1964 NABBA PRO Mr. Universe and third in the 1972 IFBB Mr. Olympia behind Arnold and Sergio but ahead of Franco Columbu and Frank Zane. Nubret could hardly be called a darkhorse---He had been competing at the highest level before Arnold, Oliva, Zane, Columbu or Ferrigno even started training!

    Nubret ranks right up there with Arnold and Oliva. At his best he had muscularity and a aesthetic physique. He was sort of like a cross between Arnold and Zane. Aside from having a world class physique, Nubret was also a world class promoter/ambassador for the sport of bodybuilding and was primarily responsible for building the IFBB in Europe back in the 70's. Flex should do a article on this legend.

    Other than that, Flex was a great issue and I am looking forward to being a reader for many years to come.

    4-0 out of 5 stars About SERGIO OLIVA in new issue of Flex.....
    I am glad to see that the Weiders are once again featuring The Myth-Sergio Oliva in the mainstream Weider publications.

    Oliva made quite an impact back in the 60's. He had an an incredible V-shape and was huge. When Sergio hit a most muscular shot--it was positively mind blowing! Then Oliva would throw those huge arms overhead and hit his signature pose which nobody could come close to.

    My only complaint with the articles was the inference that Sergio won NABBA/WABBA and WBBG shows against "mediocre" competition?

    Serge Nubret, Bertil Fox, Kalman Szkalak, Dave Johns and Tony Pearson, just to name a few, could hardly be called "mediocre" competition. Nubret beat Ferrigno, Zane, Columbo and others and all of the above mentioned men were Mr. Universe winners.

    Szkalak beat Mike Mentzer for the IFBB Mr. Universe and Dave Johns beat Casey Viator for the NABBA Mr. Universe.

    In 1976, Dan Lurie's WBBG organization, hosted a Pro show called 'Mr. Olympus that rivalled that years 'Mr Olympia. Oliva won that beating Nubret, Tony Emott (Pro Mr. Universe) Chris Dickerson among others.

    Flex mag is a great hardcore mag. Great you are doing features on Oliva, how about doing one on Nubret and Draper now.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Depending on what your looking for....
    Yes FLEX is a good magazine (I've been a subscriber for many years), however it depends on what is it that you're looking for in weightlifting and nutrition. If you inspire to look like these gentlemen on the covers of FLEX, ok. But if your looking to be fit, eat healthy, be active, FLEX might be a little to much for you. After a while you'll realize that you will not (and would not want to) look like most of these giants of the sport. On a positive side, the pictures and routines are very helpfull and motivating. And their nutrition articles are helpfull too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely the BEST BodyBuilding mag.
    I have read numerous bodybuilding mags over the past few years and Flex is the Best out there. Great infos on nutrition, excerise and pics. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars MUY CALIENTE
    THE ONLY DIFERENCE BETWEEN THE ENGLISH VERSION AND SPANISH, IS THE THE GIRLS ON THE SPANISH ISSUES ARE HOTTER THAN THE ONES IN ENGLISH, BUT THE ARTICLES ON THE ONE IN ENGLISH ARE MORE SASSY AND FUN, I HAVE A FEW CO-WORKERS THAT JUST LOVE THE HISPANIC WOMEN, AND I AGREE WITH THEM,SPECIALY IF YOU LOOK AT BARBARA KARI FROM PARAGUAY, SHE IS A HOTTIE,AND WHO COULD FORGET THE ISSUE WITH SOFIA VERGARA, SHE IS A BOMB.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Get the English Version
    The only reason someone would prefer this version is because you have no idea of what is English. They have almost all the articles you can get in the english version, but about 3 or 4 months later. The translation loses a lot of the sence and spice you get in english. And it is more expensive too!..

    Solo si no sabes ingles!.

    5-0 out of 5 stars La misma edición que la US
    Es la misma revista que la edición US , solo que en español , algunos artículos aparecen un mes después , indispensable tenerla cualquier hombre y más si estás de viaje de negocios en SudAmérica . Ademá tiene un perfil latino y no americano como la US.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellente
    I don't speak Spanish. I took some in High School but I don't remember much except "burrito" and "taco" and "tato y lola viven en Mexico". I would like to learn Spanish though so I ordered this magazine in Spanish. Let me tell you there are ALOT of Spanish words on every page. That makes it five stars as far as I'm concerned! Ole! ...
