Strong Enough? Thoughts on Thirty Years of Barbell Training

There are lots of things about weight training in general and barbell exercise in particular that can only be learned by spending way too many hours in the gym. And honestly, unless you are a gym owner, this is a really weird way to spend 75 hours a week. Mark Rippetoe has been in the fitness industry since 1978 and has owned a black-iron gym since 1984. He knows things about lifting weights and training for performance that most other coaches and professionals have never had a chance to learn. This book of essays offers a glimpse into the depths of experience made possible through many years under the bar, and many more years spent helping others under the bar.

This collection of advice, anecdotes, and opinions makes for a great read. I own "Starting Strength" as well, and make use of it frequently as a reference - quick checks to find form issues or clarifications. "Strong Enough?" is a different sort of book, one that is enjoyable to read cover-to-cover. There are still plenty of practical lifting tips, but they're gleaned as you go from the broader context.

If "Starting Strength" is the next best thing to having a lifting coach beside you in the gym, "Strong Enough?" is the next best thing to having a beer with him afterwards.
