"Simply the best book available on Olympic weightlifting."
-Don Weideman, Vice President - Pacific Weightlifting Association

“Without a doubt the best book on the market today about Olympic-style weightlifting. If I were teaching a college class, this would be the book I would have all my students buy.”
-Mike Burgener, USA Weightlifting senior international coach

“I have purchased dozens of books over the past fifteen years on topics ranging from martial arts to elements of gymnastics and weightlifting. Most contain some useful information; however, few make the yearly cut when I weed through my bookshelf to make room for new material. Why? I can't look back at these books, year after year and find something new every time I open the page. This is not the case with Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches. Everett’s book is unique in that it is concise, yet thorough. Anyone from a raw beginner to the elite level competitor will find something new in this book every time they open its pages. Everett’s strengths are his attention to detail and intelligent, accessible progressions. You will love this book, and it will never end up at the used bookstore.”
-Robb Wolf, NorCal Strength & Conditioning

“This is the book I would recommend to anyone wanting to begin the sport of Weightlifting. Greg took material that has been discussed for decades by many many great coaches and authors and managed to present it with a clarity that has rarely, if ever, been achieved. I don’t care how many years you have coached, or how many lifters you have coached, no one is going to read this book without coming across a few passages that make a light-bulb go off in his head. Greg has a way of taking material that has been argued and discussed to death, and presenting it in such a clear way that it makes you wonder why anything else ever had to be written or said.”
-Glenn Pendlay

"When I picked up the book, Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches, my first thought was: "this is heavy... heavier than what most guys train with on a typical day. "Complete" is an understatement. This book, along with Tommy Kono's opus, might finally encourage the masses to consider Olympic lifting as a basic part of correct training.

It is also a nice surprise to find the supplement and foam rolling section. Generally, recovery is ignored in many texts but we find ample discussion here in Greg's book. Moreover, I felt the sample programs were realistic and suggestive not oppressive. It's nice to find a book that emphasizes the movements over the system. I highly recommend the book.
-Dan John

“I was extremely impressed and pleased by this book… The book presents a logical method of learning the lifts (inasmuch as they can be learned from a book without hands-on coaching) and the information is solid and thorough. Anybody looking for an excellent examination of competitive Olympic lifting would do worse than to have this on their shelf.”
-Lyle McDonald

“My expectations were very high but still wildly surpassed. The only downside is that this book has made the bulk of my training library obsolete.”
-Rob McBee, CrossFit Camas

"Excellent book and should be required reading for all CrossFitters!"
-Steve Rakow, CrossFit Ocean City
