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.

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.
Why do I give it four stars then? Because it is true to its word. If you followed the author's plan, you could get ripped that fast. However, I use it as reference book. I look to it when I want to try something new or target another exercise. Lets face it, doing the same exercises every day would be boring, and this is a great reference book for new ideas.
This excellent book is broken down into four parts. The first part explains the Spartan warrior workout program. The second part gives an overview of the actual programs. Third third part is the longest and shows the numerous exercises in this Spartan workout routine. Body weight exercises, as well as equipment (Weights, Dumbells, Kettle bells, and Rubber stretching tools) exercises are demonstrated. There is enough variety to keep you motivated. The final part is the appendix and covers general physical preparedness, warm-ups, and cool-downs.
In conclusion, if you desire to get into fantastic physical shape this is a book you will want to own.
