About the Author
I've been studying Shaolin Do since late 1989 and started training with kettlebells in 2002. I am one of the first 100 people to ever be certified as an RKC under Pavel Tsatsouline and I was in the 2nd ever (Beta Cadre) training under Scott Sonnon and his CST system.
I'm currently certified with Pavel as an RKC II, with Sonnon as a CST Instructor, in the IKFF as a CKT, and with Kettlebell Athletics and the American Kettlebell Club. I think I have more kb certs than anyone else! Oh and I'm also a level I CrossFit instructor.

More About the Author
I've been training with and teaching kettlebells since September of 2002 and I've trained and taught with some of most well-known instructors in the business.
In addition I'm a 6th degree Associate Master in Shaolin Do kung fu having studied the art for over 20 years.
I've helped thousands of people lose fat and gain muscle using kettlebells and body-weight exercises to build strength and burn fat!
My fourth book on Olympic Weightlifting is geared towards enhancing athleticism and performance. It designed to teach to do the lifts step-by-step with progressions to work on or go back to. In addition there's a section on self-assessment to make sure you are ready to do the Olympic lifts.

This is a very well thought out book that has a great deal of good information as well as a plethora of individual exercises and workout routines. The instructions are fairly clear for the exercises, and the diet principles are sound. My only real issues with this book are that some of the exercises are a little bit ridiculous and the charts are somewhat open to interpretation.
The exercises: tire flips, sled pushes, sledgehammers, etc. all require special equipment. Some real-world alternatives to these exercises would've been great since not everyone lives on a farm or has a giant MMA gym in town.
The charts: some of the charts aren't very descriptive. There are some sections that designate multiple sets, but the exercises are per-limb. I.e. does 6 sets of dead cleans mean 6 sets per arm or six overall (3 sets per arm). Also, some exercises are listed in sections right after one another, and I'm unsure if these are to be done in supersets or just consecutively. I guess the charts could benefit from a little better description.
Other than that, this is a solid book that will totally destroy you. I'm ten days in and loving every second of it. If you're not looking to work hard, find another book. This is like an extreme P90X but without all the wasted time and overhead. Very well done.
This book does not waste your time with tons of page fillers. It quickly provides you the basic information you need to get motivated and rolling. This is followed by two programs each having three levels. CHoose the program and level based upon your current level of ability.
The remainder of the book shows you the "how to perform" the exercises.
I've been using for about a week now and even at level one the workouts are intense. I don't think you will be disappointed.
Dave Randolph has a comprehensive view of fitness.
The nutrition section has changed my way of thinking, as well as my diet.
This is a personalized program for all levels, beginner to experienced athlete.
Dave stresses the importance of rest and cycling your training, in addition to
warm-ups and cool-downs. These have become essential parts of my fitness program.
Dave has been my instructor for over seven years, and the results are amazing.
I have arthritis, which limits some of my abilities, yet at 50 years old, I am in the best physical condition of my life.
I highly recommend this book.
You'll also learn how to strengthen your back and butt with kettlebell swings and pull-ups. Now, pull-ups are hard. But kettlebell swings, when done as described in the book, are fun and really work. But the author gives the reader a chance to determine his/her current fitness level and then shows variations and supplemental exercises. In other words, you're not going to jump right in and do exercises that will hurt you or that don't fit your current level of fitness. I especially like the static hold chin over bar. This is a tremendous eccentric exercise that helps to lower your weight set point quickly.
You'll also learn about the right sort of rest and how often to rest and how to cycle your workouts. Workouts are provided.
