Review quote

"Even if you find the right answers, what good will it do if you were asking wrong questions? Dan John poses unexpected questions every athlete and strength coach should ask himself--and brilliantly answers them. Intervention is the perfect companion to Easy Strength." Pavel Tsatsouline, Chairman, StrongFirst "I've always said the greatest compliment to a coach is to say he gets it. Dan John really gets it...and knows how to put it on paper. Read and enjoy." ~Michael Boyle, "I love Dan John's back-to-basics yet progressive approach, his coupling of the physical and spiritual dimensions of training, his attention to detail and his ability to help push us to find our inner limits." ~Todd Durkin
