His honest outlook and reflection through his decades of coaching and teaching provide so much information, and help other coaches to practically apply, as well as challenge their own approaches in order to improve.
I totally recommend this book to everyone - I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
Much of it is already published om T-mag, but having it in a book to read or re-read is still a treat.
Dan John is an excelent coach in getting you to remmember that imple is good, but simple aint easy.
This is not a book for the casual lifter, or someone who wants to learn the lifts.
But it is a briliant book for anyone who works with fitness and have to coach others. There are many gems of wisdom concerning lifting, learning, competing and eating.
If you sometimes get lost in all the gloss and hype of the fitness industry, Dan is a good dose of reality: Get a heavy weigt..lift it fast.. repeat.
Read it if you need a bit of reality!
Some reviewers commented much could already be found on his web page but for those buying for travel reading I got this on kindle and read in places with no internet so it made this a perfect buy.
John succeeds in condensing the decades worth of fitness and training knowledge into this brilliant book. He has a really engaging style of writing that make is seem as if he is addressing you personally, in a weird way. Tonnes of training ideas for all kinds of people and athletes. He has a no B.S. approach and has put forward all of the mistakes he has made in his fitness/training life so that you don't have too. The book also gives you a great insight into John's fascinating outlook and philosophy on life.
The training ideas have been proven by Dan himself and the athletes that he has trained.
This book is worth its weight in GOLD!!! A BRILLIANT!! investment!!
