    The book is maybe cheap... but the shipping is a killer..

    No way. I was interested too until I saw the shipping costs for my country (over $50).

    If you email Bud Charniga he'll give you an accurate shipping price. The shipping calculator on the Dynamic Fitness doesnt give an accurate shipping price for international shipping, the postage is usually cheaper than what the calculator gives you.

    There is a German shop that sells them as well which might work out cheaper, especially if you are on mainland Europe.

    It actually works out cheaper for me to buy from Bud directly but I'm in Ireland.

    Besides the other Medvedyev book reviewed, are there any other books from Sportivy Press that you'd recommend picking up? I'm planning on getting them all. But I can't afford it..

    My 2 cents.

    I've got a fair few of the translations and the two I've found most useful (and find myself referring back to the most) are The Training of the Weightlifter (Roman) and Managing the Training of Weightlifters (Laputin). I'd actually recommend getting those over the Medvedev's books (not that Medvedev's books arent worth getting as well).

    Another good one is Vorobyev's A Textbook on Weightlifting which was translated by Mel Siff I think, rather than Bud Charniga. This book was actually commisioned by the IWF originally.

    Great text. It's my favorite for Weightlifting, a great one for drilling into the details. I think Science and the Practice of Strength Training (Zatsiorsky) is awesome for fundamental understanding, too. If you can grok those two texts and have a technical background (Calculus, biology, chemistry), you will be leaps and bounds beyond the average American coach.
