About the Author:

Steve Cotter draws from an extensive and diverse background as a champion athlete and cutting-edge trainer to develop some of the most complete and exciting programs in strength and conditioning today.
Throughout his lifelong study, Steve continues to research and implement the most effective training methods in kettlebells, martial arts, qigong, strength and conditioning, athletics and human performance fields. He constantly improves his skills and abilities to benefit, teach and motivate you.
Cotter shares his years of experience as a martial artist, world-class athlete and fitness coach to design and supervise programs for those who take their training seriously. While each client is unique, a common theme always presents itself in Steve's training programs; an unyielding focus, unparalleled intensity and precise attention to detail.

Review:

First, it's the best book for kettlebell techniques I've ever seen. It's leaps and bounds better in that department than anything else out there. Just nothing else compares IMO. The pictures are all in color, there are a lot of them, and the tips naturally cover things people should look out for. The addition of bad form pics will help steer people away from common errors, but these errors will be common sense to a lot of people that have used kettlebells for a while.
The content closely mirrors Steve's Encyclopedia of Kettlebell Lifting DVDs, especially volume 1. I say that because volume 2 had the BOSU, etc. in it and this book doesn't have any of that stuff.
There are a couple of techniques I don't remember seeing before in the encyclopedias -- like Push and Pull, seated pressing, and a few others. But most everything here was in the DVDs.
The accompanying DVD has short clips of everything in the book. Steve doesn't say anything in the clips, meaning that this book and DVD combo doesn't make the encyclopedia DVDs obsolete. There was a lot on those DVDs that isn't in this book/DVD, especially the second set.
As an aid to learning the KB techniques, this is the resource I've been looking for. I've been wanting something to show people without having to refer to the DVDs or actually pick up a KB and start swinging. I've also been looking for something to use as a reference in my training space and this is it.
I highly recommend the book. --Formosa Fitness

Basically it is a full color book where Steve breaks down 191 different kettlebell exercises. A unique feature is the accompanying DVD. This shows all the movements as they are performed. There is no dialogue, just the exercises. I really like this combination because you get to see the movement broken down in the book and also performed on the video. The video menus are arranged in such a way that it is easy to quickly find what you are after without having to navigate through a bunch of stuff that you aren't interested in at the moment. Some companies might sell the book and DVD separately. I applaud Steve for taking the high road here. The video quality is good as are the color photos in the book. The chapters are logically organized as one would expect of any good reference source.
