Just finished reading this, and I think it's a solid choice if you're looking for new programming in the weight room. I don't think it's geared towards folks who've been out of the gym for a while--there's a program with a "breaking in" period, but it still requires a fair amount of knowledge about lifts and technique. Each move is described in detail and photographed, however, so if you're inspired, you can probably make it work for you.

I'm disappointed that it seems to be written with a male audience in mind. There's specific recommendations for keeping our testosterone levels high enough for maximal protein synthesis, and some of the recommendations are clearly based on knowledge what works best for men. (Aside from the obvious differences in caloric needs, women typically recover more quickly and progress more slowly than men do, meaning that our programming may look different.)

All said, though, I really like the research-intensive writing style. I learned a lot!
