"Dear Mick, You're back from hell - me
too! The NO BULL continues to get more and more outlandish, coarse, honest and
downright vulgar. Congratulations."

"...The No Bull Collection is the only true bodybuilding mag that tells as it
is. No articles to please the majority, no politics, no propaganda. Just plain
and simple as it is. It takes a brave man to stick with what he believes in. I
am sure there has been the temptation on many occasions to "tidy it up" to
appeal to the masses and get a place on the high street magazine racks. But
obviously you have resisted this temptation at considerable personal loss to
yourself to give the bodybuilder the true picture...."
- Mike Mitchell
NABBA & WFF Scottish International President Ex Mr. Scotland, 2nd Place WFF
"Started body building again after 5 years only one
place to come - straight to Mick."
"Hey Mick great site with a great personal touch, cheers mate."
"Keep up the good work with the NBC I look
forward to every
issue At least one Mag has the Balls to tell Bodybuilding as it
"For me the No Bull magazine has
everything that I would want in a way that actually makes me want to read it.
With some of the other body-building / training magazines the information is
delivered in a format not to educate but seemingly to show how intelligent the
writer is and how ignorant the reader is. No Bull gives you the information
straight to the point but with a healthy attitude of humor in itself.
With each edition of the magazine you can be guaranteed learning something that
will genuinely make you better in the sport and you will also enjoy the process
and how many of the other magazines can consistently do that.
What I mainly like is the fact that the information given is the information
that the guys in the gym actually want and need, information thatís going to
make them bigger, stronger and most of all healthier. Thatís why I read the
magazine and why I will continue to do so."

"Mick, I just finished reading "Tears On A
Keyboard". It has brought tears to my eyes. I can relate to many things in your
story. Life is weird, isn't it? I am glad you pulled through and to write such
an inspiring story that has touch thousands, perhaps millions of people.
Thank you Mick. Thank you for sharing something so painful in your life to the
rest of the world. We can all relate and learn from it in one way or another.
God bless you and your family. I hope we can become friends for a very long
time. Remember, what you do in life echoes in eternity."
In Strength & Honor,
"Dear Mick, I just received your e-mail and
wanted to let you know that you rock. I had recently started taking gear and the
only real help I had was from the actual supplier and the other guys in the gym.
As you can probably imagine the information was shall we say conflicting.
I checked out a lot of different sites but it all seemed like the same boring
bullshit- not really telling me what I needed to now. Your sight and e-mails
have been instrumental in me making the proper gains on gear and not screwing
myself by listening to a lot of so called experts.
I recently purchased the Laymans Guide- WOW. That is what I have been looking
for and right on time. I had just started a cycle and was about to fuck it all
up based on this goof ball I had met in the gym who claimed to be a certified
trainer, steroid expert, etc.(basically a know it all asshole who really doesn't
know jack shit)
Thank you for all of your great, straight forward information. Just to let you
know I have not picked up a body building magazine or any other such related
materials since getting hooked up with you. It all just seems like mindless
dribble compared to you and what is up with all the advertisements? Are they
trying to help or are they just after my money. (That's a rhetorical question)
Thank you again and congratulations on your work with Chris. He looks great.
Thanks to you I am on my way there too."

"Hello Mick, I first heard of you by
accident while searching the web for infomation on steroids, most of the sites
are crap! I was on your site for hours just reading all I could with the
intention of gathering as much info as I could then leave the site alone.
As I went through the site I realised that it was not just a source of
information on steroids but bodybuilding, training, diet and all sorts of other
related topics were there too, all backed up by yourself!
I purchased the laymans guides, which answered most of my questions, but
realised to get the best out of my bodybuilding I would have to become a member
of the Board, now I thought this would be expensive, but no it is very cheap and
with the info I have recieved in the last month alone I have saved a lot of
money and grief with the advice from other board members and yourself.
You have answered my questions on the phone, you have answered my mails and my
guides came within a few days, excellent service, anyone interested in
bodybuilding, let alone steroids would do well to see for themselves what Mick
Hart Training Systems has to offer, from beginner to Competitor!
I would like to thank you for your time and trouble in helping me and I feel
very comfortable with the knowledge that if I need help you are there for me.
All the best."
"Read both books the weekend that I bought them, they were brilliant, feel
I've learnt so much from them in fact still refere to them for any queeries I
have. Have exercise and gaer plans that are easy to understand and follow. Also
now I know what the juice that I get is best for e.g mass, or conditioning.
Money well spent and I havnt got a lot of it to go around. Cheers Mick."
"I have read both laymens guides and found them to be very enjoyable and
informative. I now work out my own cycles utilising the steroid references in
your books. I always like to fall back on the books just before a cycle to make
sure everythings 100%. Cheers mick gold dust"
"Dear Mick, It's great to hear that you're
going to publish the No Bull collection online. It's about time the rest of the
world got to read it - the UK has been lucky to have you for all these years,
now everyone can learn and laugh with you.
Your amazing and unique attitude coupled with the No Bulls info and humor stand
out like a lighthouse in the sea of hypocrisy and bullshit that fill the pages
of the mainstream mags.
We respect the fact that you have not "sold out" like the others and filled your
mag with supplement ads and articles designed only to sell products and not
educate readers. We know exactly how hard it is to publish real bodybuilding and
steroid info without bowing to the pressure and financial advantages of big
Your subscribers should count themselves amongst the luckiest alive. We wish you
and your subscribers the very best wishes, and many more years on pure No Bull
- The Steroid-Encyclopaedia Team
"Hi Mick, What can I say, I cannot believe the stuff written in your mag, it
is totally incredible. I also can't believe I have bought and read so much
bullshit for the last 5 years in the "other" mags. After reading your
explanation of why the content of the typical bodybuilding mags is so censored
it began to make sense.
I have gone from never having heard about
you, to not being able to STOP talking about the No Bull to the guys in the gym.
Please send me details on how I can buy the paper edition of your back issues. I
hope I can get it through customs !!! Keep up this incredible work. Thanks."
"Subscribing to the No Bull Collection, reading your Layman's Guide 1 & 2 and
steroid encyclopedia has changed my life. Unfortunately, I was one who let the
media install fear in me without ever questioning do they even know what the
fuck they are talking about.
What I have learned from you has also affected every other aspect in my life.
Instead of believing what the media or someone say's I have learned to question
it and seek advice from professionals like your self. You are truly an
inspiration in my life. Keep telling it like it is because you have such A gift
to impact peoples lives for the positive. For this I will be forever greatful."

"Dear Mr Hart, I just wanted to let you know
in a simple email that I felt compelled to write to you after reading your
"tears on a keyboard". And then I came across your post. I don't write emotional
or personal emails.... not to anyone, let alone a guy I don't even know..... but
I had to tell you this.
As a father of Two lovely boys and a person who loves the gym...cant say
bodybuilder as I don't think I train hard enough or eat enough, I was inspired,
saddened and moved greatly by your words.
The mixture of your emotions comes through so vividly and I just wanted to tell
you that I think your strength of character to come through this, then write
this down (and for others to see it) is amazing and a credit to you as a human
I wish you and your family all the best in the future, and I would like to thank
you personally on behalf of my kids as you have reminded me in no uncertain
terms that I am so lucky to have them... and yet I have spend so little time
telling them how much they mean to me, something I fully intend to rectify. My
thanks and my best personal regards"
- Adrian Jones
"Hi Mick, At a time where bodybuilding has
become subject to the infighting of association wannabe's and the glare of the
press, be it good or bad (usually the latter) it is somewhat refreshing to know
there is still at least a handful of people out there who can still lift
themselves above the crowd an exhibit humility and integrity when those around
them fall like dominos.
It makes a pleasure to pick up a magazine or watch a bodybuilding video that
exhibits three things: honesty, honesty and honesty (okay, so they're humorous
as well) as opposed to the staged, airbrushed, clinical and heavily edited.
No that's not to destroy the other products, there is room (and a market) for
all. But what people want to see is something that speaks their language. Mick
Hart is one of those who speak the language. Sometimes brash, sometimes loud,
often controversial and ON occasions witty but always brutally honest.
Good to see the mag has gone live... may you continue to reign. All the best."
- Neil Jackson
"To Mick, One things for sure though the NO
BULL certainly tells the stories other mags wouldn't dare... Seriously though,
the mag is great, there's no hiding from the truth and the opinions in the
magazine are NOT written by juiced up bodybuilders who claim they use Weider
this and Muscletech that..."
- Marcel Apfel
"If you want the tools to become more than just
a physique and learn the iron sport as a way of life as I did, Mick Hart's No
Bull can help you do just that. This is just a personal thanks to a great friend
and mentor... Thank you Mick!"
- Jake Shelton
"Dear Mick, I must have spent years buying
glossy publications full of training routines which were totally unrealistic for
the average mortal - and all performed by the owners of incredible physiques,
built only on the bizarre supplements peddled within their pages.
NO BULL means exactly what it says. Honest, reliable and realistic. More than
that, it's accessible and always on call to help with everything from routines
What I admire the most of all is that the magazine does not champion one side or
the other, it does not preach or pretend to tow the party line. The magazine
simply tries to fight the ignorance.
At the end of the day, if you can educate while still keeping the tongue firmly
in the cheek, it can't be a bad thing. Keep up the good work Mick. Yours

"Dear No Bull, After spending many years of reading the mainstream
bodybuilding mags, it was a nice surprise to discover The No Bull Collection.
Finally, a bodybuilding magazine that tells it like it is and isn't afraid to
have a bit of fun while doing it!
There hasn't been an issue I've read that hasn't made me laugh, and at the same
time, I've learned a great deal about supplementation, training, nutrition and
steroids. To Mick and all the contributors, keep up the great work. This
magazine will only get better as time goes by. Sincerely,"

"Dear Mick, firstly I would like to thank you for this special offer and your
straight from the hip No Bull articles. At last someone who is in touch with the
reality of the every day bodybuilder who is ordinary, but want to achieve."
- Peter Michael Dedes
"I really enjoy your site, and your "Tears on a Keyboard" is great, reminded me
of 15 months I spent lost in cocaine a while back. Addiction is tough!!!"
"Finding you and your site makes me think that this year is going to be one to
enjoy both in my training and now in my free time i get to read some worth while
information I hope this find you well if you are ever traveling to Australia let
me know so that I may meet up with you, I look forward to hearing from you and
your honest "NO BULL" approach."
- Matt Tapp
"As a new member, I have already seen that I will be making this place my home
for everything related to bodybuilding and training. All questions are answered
quickly and you can be assured that the answer you get is backed by years of
professional experience. The knowledge in Mick's books ALONE is invaluable, much
less getting advice on your training and supplementation directly!
The other side is that the guys here are FRIENDLY, have a great sense of humor,
and only want to help you succeed. They share my addiction to iron!
Other boards are full of people who are just there to chat or look at pictures
or talk about Oprah's next diet....NOT No Bull!!! I'm confident that Mick will
keep it that way!"

"The two books are great. I especially liked the second one. Ive been looking at
the internet for advice for a few years as to how to start taking gear, but the
responses from people always seemed to be to strong.
They were telling me, a steroid virgin, to take 600 of Deca per week and 500 of
sust per week combined. I now know that this is to much for a first time user,
and, unlike some advice that Ive recieved in the past, im going to use nolvadex
all through the cycle to be on the safe side. Im going to be starting my first
cycle next week of 200 deca a week for eight weeks, and D-bol in a gradual
increase, then decrease order.
Your laymans guides have taught me a lot, especially that sane steroid use is
safe and effective."
"To whom it may concern. The lamans Guides in my opinion, have got to be the two
best books that I have ever purchased.I do believe, without a doubt that
everyone who wants this kind of information should buy these books.
This was by far, the best money I have spent. Please keep me on your regular
mailing list.I would also like to know more about any special promotions etc.
concerning the No Bulls Collection. Again my sincere thanks."
"Thanks for your first-rate customer support. I downloaded and read TLGS parts I
& II in one sitting. Never thought it might be a page-turner. Obviously, I'll
need to re-read it; for there is info that I'll need to recall as well as
BTW, the humor and frankness with which you discuss the issues are a most
welcome change from the pap we're fed elsewhere. - Fine job!!"
- No name given
"Lament is an understatement to what level I understood about steroids and body
building. I've read your manual and must say that it has educated me on more
than what I expected to learn. The information is clear and concise, "no bull".
I had no idea the human body can do what it does. I like the straight talk on
the good and evils of how chemistry can affect your system. I've taken a
different outlook to nutrition and health and have become more conscientious
about them both.
The price of learning through mistakes can be very costly when you donít know
what youíre doing and Iím not just talking about money. This manual has provided
me with some insight to opening other avenues of research, which will take me on
the road to where I want my body to be. - Thank you."
"As to the laymans guides that I purchased I think they are awesome. I went from
knowing pretty much nothing about steroids to knowing most of what I needed to
know . From the books I've decided which and how much gear to take, what to stay
away from. I think they are an invaluable source of knowledge. And I have to
thank Mick for writing these, and giving those of us that haven't had the
expirience the knowledge we need to use gear safely. -By far a job greately
"Mick, I must say that it's rather unusual to receive email in the type of voice
that the 'No Bull' eZine arrives in. There aren't many like it in the world at
all. I did get the Layman's Guide, and I have enjoyed the ABSOLUTE SHIT OUT OF
IT! I do have a few of my own questions regarding certain supplements, stacks,
etc, but I'll save those for later. For now, keep sending; I'll keep reading."
"Well I must say it is one of the more intriguingbooks and very informative if I
had not already read (Chemical Warfare, Anabolic Advantage, Anabolics 2002, and
of course the unforgetable Steroids 101)
I would say this is one of the best book to have as a beginner or long time
participant full of Micks' humor but more so the truth that the AMA and the Feds
do not want you to know it would take away someones job policing something as
beneficial as AS.
So here is to you who worked so hard on this project the world needs you so KEEP
UP THE GREAT WORK!!!"

"Mick, have read both LG 1 & 2 and I gotta tell you they made a shitload more sense
than any of the other information I have read over the years. That includes many
of the medical publications that go around expousing the so called 'truth' about
I haven't yet subscribed to the No-Bull collection but it is just a matter of
time and getting my arse into gear (not that gear). Cheers for the info and in
the meantime I need to hit the gym.
"The books are very useful and I cant wait to start seeing results. The injection
procedure chapter was explained in a way that gave me the courage to do it
myself and Mick was right, it was painless!! That eliminated the need to arrange
for someone to help me, which in my case is not so easy to do. Thanks for your
"Hi Mick, my name is James. I ordered your Laymans Guides 1 and 2 about a mounth ago. I
apologize for not getting back to you sooner. It's good to see someone with
enough balls to stand up in the middle of a media controlled society and tell it
like it really is specially when it comes to steriods.
People have been brain fucked for so long about the subject that to even mention
the word steroids is futile Its been labeled and stuck on the shelf under
Someone that I admire and respect very much once told me that people perish from
lack of knowledge not only are they blind but they make it impossible for
outhers to see. Popular opinion isn,t allways the best path to take.the truth is
out there but sometimes we have to get off our lazy asses and do a little of
that four letter word called work to find it.
I think the story about the guy doing squats with the gear up his ass sums it
up, not only was it funnier than hell the point was well made.you have boath
curage and caricature Mick for that I thank you and I hope you continue to let
your light shine for those who really want to know the truth about steriods and
to those who don't, well fuck em."
"I just want to say that everything I have read has been awesome. I am very new
to the bodybuilding world. I have only been involved for around 2yrs now. I have
used alot of your advice in the gym and it has worked to my advatange. Just want
to say thanx."
"Here in the UK Mick has a fantastic reputation as both an expert in steroids
and also training - he has trained many very successful bodybuilders. I have a
great deal of respect for him (I've known about him for around 10 years, I first
bought some copies of his magazine 'No Bull' when at university) and so I looked
forward greatly to reading his steroid books - I looking forward to reading
something a little special.
I wasn't let down. :) Mick has a straight from the hip, no messing
conversational style of writing and his hum our is second to none. It makes
reading his work a real joy. I think he could make a book about how to get paint
to dry entertaining!! If you've read any of Mick's stuff you will know just how
entertaining he is....."
"Dear Mick Hart,
I have recently purchased both your books and read them from cover to cover the
moment I downloaded it. I thought they were fantastic. Steroids, if used
incorrectly, are a real hazard to one's health. I have a few friends who are
going through some tough times because they abused some gear for quite a while.
I wish they had these books years ago to lead them in the right direction. If I
ever do decide to take steroids you better believe these two books will be right
by my side the whole way through. Thank you for your expertise on the subject."
P.S. "Tears on a Keyboard" was extremely touching. One of my friends is trying
to battle that addiction right now and I gave him your book to see if it will
help. To date, he's been clean for 10 days. It's a start at least.
"I have been reading these books now for about a week.They are very much what I
intended them to be (full of knowledge).These are very well written books,
couldn't have did any better."
"Hey Mick I read the first Layman's guide and it was great. To think that I don't
have to take a crap load of juice to get the size I want is a relief. I see so
many people on the forums spouting you need to take 800mg of sust and 50mg of
d-bol and 400mg of Deca to get the results you want. I'm looking forward to
reading the second Layman's guide. Thank you for all the info Mick and a couple
of laughs to go with it."
"Hi Mick, what can I say nothing really apart from fantastic, superb, funny, informative
but most of all BRUTALLY HONEST. If people are offended by the fucks then they
don't live in the real world and are the people who will fuck up by not using
the info in the books.
The content is excellent and I devoured them now I am reading them so I take in
the information properly and don't end up a dickhead steroid user. Tears on a
keyboard had me looking at how lucky I am with my family and made me give my
kids a big hug. It gives me the a picture of a man of iron will and honesty who
can admit he fucked up and share it with the world thank you for that. I am
looking forward to my training and will follow your advice to the letter thank
you Mick stay healthy and lucky."
