Blind Author Lifts The Darkness From The Health And Fitness Industry

Share Article

The final volume of the much anticipated tell-all book series by Randy Roach, on the history of the health and fitness industry was on the verge of remaining in the dark due to author's struggles with blindness, health and personal loss. Fortunately, he has found a way to make it happen.

I never had faltered on a chapter only paragraphs away from completion.

Forty-year veteran trainer, Randy Roach, is about to finally unveil Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secretive antics for his success while clearing the smoke screen that has for decades shrouded the multi-million dollar health and fitness industry. Roach feels it is time to fully expose the extent of drug usage in the advancement of sports performance and also a surprising recreational abuse. He plans to shed light on the key historical facts behind today’s nutritional supplements and state of our food supply. And finally this published author and researcher will expose the dubious politics undermining natural health measures and enlighten on the exploding, pseudo non-profit disease industry and its public-duping fund raising schemes (i.e.: ice-bucket challenge.)

These pertinent cultural and health-baring issues need to be accurately addressed according to the blind historian, Roach, who just recently declared that the third and grand finale Volume of his colossal book series, Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors” Is a definite go! The project will begin with a complimentary chapter in the fall!

However, the green light did not come easily as he had to resolve both professional and personal issues in order to continue his monumental, 12-year work. Roach, who actually went blind in the middle of writing his first two volumes, still managed to release them in June of 2008 and November 2011 respectively. Regardless, the stress from those two volumes had begun taking its toll on the sightless author, inventor, historian, researcher and training consultant. Roach explained:

"I had just come off of a very grueling first half of 2011 pulling Volume II together then virtually spending roughly 15 hours daily from July 1 until the beginning of October organizing, editing, referencing, indexing and proofing the manuscript… the biggest stress and let down came through dealing with the publisher of both books in October and November of 2011.”

With the loss of three close and dear friends, Randy did not realize the growing magnitude of tension he carried into 2012 and by spring of that year he conceded that he both mentally and emotionally stalled completely on "Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors”. “I knew I was burnt out on it,” said Roach. “I never had faltered on a chapter only paragraphs away from completion.”

Fighting additional health issues, Randy drew encouragement from a number of directions. Reaction to Volume I far exceeded initial expectations with endorsements coming from the general reader, academia, and numerous professionals throughout the field. David Epstein of Sports Illustrated commented on the “unbelievably extensive research.” Veteran industry writer George Coates stated, “If Volume II is only half as good as Volume I, it will still be terrific! I must have read Volume I at least six times and I'm still amazed at the clarity and content throughout.” Paul Solotaroff of Men’s Journal and Rolling Stone called Volume II “a riveting, panoramic read.”

Roach also stated that since the release of those volumes, aspects of his enormous research project have definitely eased to some degree as more and more key industry players have stepped forward willing to share information. This, along with recent advancements in digital media distributions, had made his decision to precede that much easier.

The overwhelming inquiries regarding the completion of his book series has led Roach to tap this latest technology in order to re-release his first two volumes electronically in smaller related units. It will be this strategic new format in which he plans to publish his best and final volume much sooner rather than later. Randy has stated further that he is constantly listening to audience input for both incentive and additional ideas on the fate of his epic work, "Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors.”
