In this new book, he'll make you question what you've done in the past, re-evaluate what you're doing now, and motivate you to think for yourself in the future. -- Eric Cressey "EricCressey.com"

This book is worth every penny you pay for it. It is very well written and is a pleasant read. For this price, I firmly believe that this book is the best you can get on functional training. Though it is not the end all be all holy grail of coaching, the content of this book will help you make a better coach.

I rated this book 5 because it didn't go any higher, this book is a must for every coach or athlete (though a little heavy on anatomy).

There is quite a bit or repetition but some things are worth repeating to drive through the message.
Standing on the shoulders of giants is worth the price tag to avoid dangerous mistakes that can cause injury.
