    "Very interesting."

    While there's some fantastic information in here and it's reinvigorated my love for kettlebell training and changed the way I structure my programming, Pavel says the word "sissy" almost as often as he says "kettlebell" and complains about the apparent "feminization of men" which is really off-putting. If you can ignore the misogynistic meathead tough guy tone, there are some real gems to be found here. Definitely a must-listen for anyone interested in strength training.

    "Content is useful but too long for what it wants to transmit"

    It's a good buy, the workout is solid.

    Content is useful but takes too long to get to the point, it could be summarized in 15min.

    The review is highly personal, I really don't care much about the motivational psychology and narrative the author fills the blanks with, however the spin he puts on the narrative performance with the accent and bravado is hilarious and entertaining.

    A pdf file with exercise demos and workout charts is needed to make this worthwhile

    "Great book, great program!"

    I love a book read by the author. Listening to this feels like being coached by Pavel himself. I've been lifting weights for 15+ years and this program is making me both stronger and leaner. I never understood how awesome kettlebells are until I started this. they really are didn't and in many ways better. I highly recommend this book. Pavel has a great sense of humor and a casual writing style that I really like. He's effective, entertaining and funny.

    "Outstanding training protocol"

    Obviously this book is for auditory learners at intermediate to elite training levels. However this training protocol is simple enough for the curious beginner who is willing to research proper form and technique elsewhere. There are no PDFs or videos on training techniques

    "one of my all time faves now on audible!"

    It is a great book.Pavel's authentic no nonsense narration makes the audible version a pleasure to listen.
    As a Russian kettlebell coach, I can say that Pavel's work is groundbreaking and foundational. He inspires, educates and entertains and his books are a must read for all aspiring kettlebell enthusiasts, and especially trainers.

    "Simple, but not simpler."

    Nothing fancy here, just effective. As a S & C in football (soccer) I don't have as much time as I would like to have in weight room or to work on movement qualities. What I found is that short and frequent exposure to strength practice can make a huge (positive) difference in a long run. Lessons taken from this book will take that differences on a next level.
