    Practical Programming

    Any of you guys read this book Practical Programming by Rip and Kilgore? Recommend it? Hate it? Love it? I saw it when i was going to buy Starting Strength. Looks like good stuff but idk. Is it that much different than SS?

    I agree with Will, SS goes much more in to depth of how to complete the lifts. That being said though, if you're already proficient in the technique you might get more value from Practical Programming.

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
