About the Author
Mark Rippetoe is an American strength training coach and author. He has published a number of books and peer-reviewed articles. Although he has no advanced degree in exercise science, he has several decades of experience as a strength coach, is a former powerlifter, and a current gym owner. He was a part of the charter group of individuals to receive the CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) certification when it was first offered by the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) in 1985. He was formerly associated with the CrossFit community as a subject matter expert in barbell training. He authored many training articles for the CrossFit Journal and created the Basic Barbell Certification course, which he conducted from 2006 to 2009. He expanded this course into a three-day Starting Strength Seminar produced through the Aasgaard Company in 2010. He is also known for his particularly brash teaching style and humor, prompting several online compilations of his attributed quotations.

Its expensive, but id recommend finding the real book. I think i paid around £35 from a strength training website in the uk
I'm so glad I bought this book.
Downside is, I learnt that I can't squat 150kg, not properly. The upside is that I'm sure I will be able to, in due course. I dropped weight off the bar, and my technique, and awareness of my positioning, is now so crisp.
Can't recommend this book enough.
You will get strong if you follow the program, eat well, sleep well and stop mincing about.
Having said that, if you are looking for a light reading book with a lot of nice pictures (which would definitely be insufficient to learn the right techniques!) then this one is not for you. It does require some serious reading of the text to get the point.
