Also, by reading Bones of iron you will get to know Matt's knowledge, love, dedication, and wonderful memories of his weightlifting experiences. So, many of us have had very similar experiences, this book makes one proud to be an Olympic Style Weightlifter
Foreman's writing is witty and charming, and you feel like you're listening to a friend telling you stories, giving you advice, and commiserating over a beer-- he somehow manages to impart his vast wisdom without lecturing from on high.
I'm only a beginning weightlifter and I feel like I can already relate to some of the successes and setbacks he describes, but I'm sure this book would be just as wonderful for seasoned veterans. With advice from guys like Foreman to help me, maybe I'll become a seasoned veteran someday too!
My favorite part about Foreman is his personable nature. I did a blog post about his book and within a day he had commented on the post. Amazing! Indeed, if you want to hear great stories about weightlifting and weightlifters, this is the book to get. If you are looking for more of an instruction book on HOW to weightlift, then I suggest Weightlifting: a Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches by Greg Everett.
This book is a compilation of a lot of articles Matt wrote for the Performance Menu on [...].
Everyone who likes the O-lift, get better in it and get better in life should buy the book and read it. You can only get better after you finished it. There are tips for everyone in this book.
Long story short. Buy it and get the best out of you.
5 stars is the only review I can give.
