Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased a copy of Mark Berry's, Physical Training Simplified and Alan Calvert's Super Strength reissued by Create Space Independent Publishing Platform last summer. While Berry and Calvert content is excellent, I cannot say the same for Create Space Independent Publishing Platform (CSIPP). These two books we scanned which is ok. The problem is they were not proof read for scanning errors, and there are a multitude of errors. I would not recommend CSIPP books unless you like proof reading. After reading the two books from CSIP, I started buying from Bill Hinbern's World Famous Super Strength Training. To cut to the chase, I will not spend an addition penny on CSIPP books.
