About this Audiobook
Hear the truth about the 1981 Mr. Olympia (and what happened backstage), about Tom's real relationship with Joe Weider, Vince McMahon, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and many others.
Told in his gritty, no-nonsense, trademark style - listen to Tom recount almost 7 hours of captivating stories and defining moments from his upbringing, successes and setbacks, both personal and professional - in unprecedented candor and detail.
In this long-awaited audiobook, Tom doesn't hold back and talks about all the things he's said he "probably shouldn't tell you but I am telling you because if I was listening to somebody, I'd want to know what they really felt". Let Tom introduce you to the "characters" in his life, and detail his first-hand account of some of modern bodybuilding's most contentious and formative events.
Known to bodybuilders young and old as The Golden Eagle, the man Arnold Schwarzenegger personally passed the "bodybuilding torch" to, and commonly acknowledged as the most intense bodybuilder who ever trained - a living legend who forged the best legs to ever adorn a bodybuilding stage -Tom never wanted a "normal" life. The dedication and devotion to his calling started when he was barely ten years old, and propelled him on a trajectory that led to bodybuilding's stratosphere, and beyond - to the top of the world of the social and business elite.
While hardly a coming of age tale, Tom Platz: Raw and Uncut distills the experiences that marked his life, and influenced that of countless others. How a boy growing up in a "rowdy group" in Pittsburgh and expected to end up in jail or dead, worked purposefully and relentlessly to end up in California - at the top of the fitness game, and on the cover of every fitness magazine.
