16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Trevor the Turkey Dinosaur on 15 Jan. 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
Pros:
+It contains a great deal of relevant information regarding strength training in general.

Cons:
-The majority of the programs and training concepts have been covered elsewhere (ie; Never Let Go, Power to the People) or are freely available on the internet (eg; free articles from the author's websites, free articles found on DragonDoor/T-Nation/etc). The only unique content is the quadrants system which is just a rough guide of an athlete's needs based on how advanced/specialised they are however it is relatively intuitive. For example, an elite level boxer needs to spend the majority of their time boxing ("Skills pay the bills") with only a couple of weekly strength sessions focusing on the big compound movements. On the other hand a novice can afford to strength train more frequently and with a greater variety of exercises.

-The book is fluffed out with countless photograph sized pictures of Dan and Pavel, random pictures of DragonDoor affiliated coaches and athletes, testimonials, lengthy quotes that should have been summarised and referenced, forewords and prefaces full of hyperbole and self promotion, etc. The majority of the topics covered are not difficult to understand and they do not need "expanding upon" further or the associated junk.

-Chaotic writing style. At the start of the book Dan explains how he and Pavel thought that it would be a good idea to write the book in a 'conversation type format'. The result is a book that has dual personalities. It struck me as a very lazy writing style and more time should have been spent summarising these excerpts to better include them in the main body of text.

-Poor formatting.

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel with the latest fitness centre idiocy. Pavel and Dan encourage you to get strong simply and then apply that strength to your sport or life. As a coach and trainer I see my fellow "professional" adding gimmicks and nuances to their clients training when they don't have the basic strength and skills they need. I say to my athletes, "it's not what I know that's important, it's what I can get you to do"
Buy this book and throw most ofnthe others away.

Format: Kindle Edition
I strongly disagree with the previos reviewer. This book has a ton of new content, and greatly expands on both authers previous works. Dan's full explanation of the four quadrants is pure gold, and could potentially save someone years of ineffectual training. Yes, programs such as those contained in Enter the Kettlebell and Power to the People are mentioned, but only in so much as how to effectively combine them, and the book explains which sort of routine is suitable for which sort f athlete. The section on 'armour building' or hypertrophy is fantastic, and expands further Dan's previous book. Mass Made Simple. The 40 day workout is included, although freely available online, is greatly expanded on here. The even easier strength chapter was great, and gives an excellent alternative to Power to the People for achieving a huge deadlift. There are not many people in the strength and fitness world whom I trust, but Dan and Pavel are two of them, I firmly believe that this book will become a true classic - highly recommended.
