One aspect of personal training this book does not cover, which is fine because that's not what this book is for; is the selling side of personal training. There are many books on selling that we've read and discussed but the most helpful I have found on the subject is The Personal Training Sales Education Textbook: A simple and effective sales system designed specifically for the personal trainer in the health club. (Volume 1). Most of us refer this book as well for the selling process it discusses for personal trainers.
Of course this book represents only the beginning of a health an fitness professional journey, but if you want to be a really good top noch elite professional in general health and fitness pratice or in personal trainning in particular, you should enrich yourself with a lot more references preferencially less conservative and lot more forward.
This book is very comprehensive concerning risk assessment and control in exercise prescription but is very poor in exercise training methodology.
I have several of these (diferent editions)... and a lot more besides this.
If you're a student, a professional in his first steps or do not know ACSM guidelines you should most definetly buy these book.
