    Why waste money on books when the internet has all the information you need for free? :facepalm:

    Pullum has it.

    But to be honest, as someone who has the book myself, there isn't really any need to buy it unless you want descriptions of the lifts in near nauseating depth.

    The basic programme is all over the internet and the DVDs or actually training with people who know what they're doing will teach you the lifts far better than a book.

    The book is good if you are that kind of learner. I didn't think it was that nauseating, but I suppose if Rippetoe's personality rubs you the wrong way it would be. I don't really think much of the book's information is available on the internet for free, although Smack is right that it is always better to train with good lifters.

    My copy has been in a box for a long time with a standing policy that the first person to ask me in person gets to borrow it indefinitely. It did help me when I started lifting though.

    I didn't mean nauseating in that way; I meant the level of detail the book goes into to describe the lifts. It goes into far more detail than I could ever understand or make use of, but then I have a poor grasp of anatomy anyway.

    My copy has been in my drawer for a while. It's a good book, though, and I'd recommend it to anyone who does want to read 50 odd pages on how to squat. I liked it because it gave me something to read on the throne - and when I was doing GOMAD I was on the throne a lot. Definitely one of the best weights training books out there.

    Does the offer to borrow indefinitely still stand ?

    Fair enough. I enjoy that stuff so the content didn't feel super heavy to me.
