This book gets 5 stars because it is simple and you will get stronger. It lays out how to keep getting stronger while working just below maximal weight, a huge benefit because it helps you keep going month after month without getting fried. I like to go to the gym with a plan. If you follow this program and have a good idea of what your max is on the big lifts (Squat, Deads, Press, Brench Press, Power Clean) you can go to the gym and put it on autopilot so that all you need to do is concentrate on the lifts and doing the 1st grade math to rack the bar. It also helps deal with the excersize ADD that most have by stearing you toward excersizes that maximize gains in total body strength. There is no fluff here, think authors/coaches/lifters such as Rippetoe and Starr, with simpler programming. Little to no guesswork is required.

I should note that I have not purchased the hard copy, but rather the ebook for both editions 1 and 2. As far as I know the content is exactly the same. I saw that this was now available on amazon and wanted to write a review because I think Jim's philosphy on strength and fitness is the best for 99.9% of the population.
