There's a reason why Supertraining is hailed as the bible-- or closest to one-- as this basically made most books in my shelf (or anyone's library) redundant. Some sections were obviously more interesting than others, and some of the researches mentioned were at least 40 years old; nevertheless, Supertraining is still a tour-de-force.

This is a really good investment.

This isn't a book you typically sit down and read through. But any strength coach should be familiar with its principles and as a reference it is invaluable. Typically people seem to either rave about this text or disregard it. Which is unfortunate since it is a great resource but also admittedly difficult reading.

If you have experience in the field, and can think for yourself, I think it's a good, though not only, resource to have at your disposal. Having said that, I haven't read Verkoshansky's latest version, and, with Siff passing away in 2003 (RIP), some things (from what I recall of when I read it a while ago) are outdated.

Over the last 3 years, Ive read this book all the way through 3 times and taken notes Its incredibly difficult to read yet full of info. It's alright but not the holy grail. Keep it for reference.

One of the best references to the S&C profession. Tough to "read", great reference!

Please believe me: most people praising this book are doing so because they think it makes them look smart. There is lots and lots of information here. None of it is applicable to your training.
