Let me get my gripes out of the way first. The book reads like a rough draft, with grammar errors to the point of distraction. I've read J.D. Johannes' blog entries, which are very well-written, so I am certain he's a good writer, or a good (enough) writer. That last sentence will only be appreciated by those who've read the book. I would even offer to do some editing for them, because the content itself is excellent.

This book is a book on how to lose weight, build muscle, and most importantly, build a custom workout that is right for you. And when I say "right for you", I don't mean some pansy workout to make you feel good about yourself in some new-agey way doing the same workout every week. I mean getting results by keeping data, and acting upon it. And you make the dietary changes that muscles need to grow and increase in strength. Practical and effective, and remarkably simple, which as a simpleton, I love. Please read.

Very solid program that focuses on ensuring that you make progress over the middle- and long-term. If you've been going to the gym for a couple of years without seeing significant progress (and would like to change that), this program is for you. The author starts out with a heavy emphasis on machine-based exercising, which should be moved on from as soon as possible, but the program can be adapted to better training movements (e.g. front squats, weighted pullups, cleans, etc.).

Great book, easy to follow, anyone can do this system and... IT WORKS! I used to eat all day, snacking on mostly carbs. Being vegetarian it is more of a challenge to get the protein my body needs. Doing the system, losing weight EVEN on my cheat days! So happy with my results!

Well written and informative, JD's system is based on tried and true ideas and methods that are a staple of anyone who has been lifting weights for a long time.
The book has three phases, P1 and P2 are achievable by anyone who has the dedication to follow the system.
I believe that only the ultra serious body sculptors amongst us will take JD's extreme dieting system to heart, and that method takes up the third part of this book.
The methods mentioned in this book will only be used (IMHO) by people who have the metal toughness and dedication to push themselves outside of their comfort zone.
There's a reason only 1% of people on the planet have the ripped and shredded physiques of guys like Hugh 'The Wolverine' Jackman and Jason Statham...it requires a lot of mental discipline and mental toughness and the ability to push yourself past the realm of uncomfortable and into the realm of actual pain. But note that the pain of fatigued muscles is short lived and will yield results if you can keep up the exercises and are prepared to make changes to your food intake.
JD's Fit for Combat system isn't for anyone who doesn't have the mental toughness to continually push themselves to achieve the goals they want.
If, however, you do have the discipline required to do so then JD's system may work well for you.
There's nothing new, as far as lifting weights goes, in this book, but JD's system is easy to understand and follow and it is up to the individual how hard they want to push themselves and how far they want to go in their efforts to be fitter and achieve the look they want.
