Stuff You Should Read: 5/18/09

Written on May 18, 2009 at 5:28 am, by Eric Cressey

It’s been a while since I last published one of these guys, and here are a few recommendations:

The Don’t Squat Recommendation – We’ve all heard it, but only some of use have questioned it.

Inefficiency for Fat Loss – Sometimes, you’ve just got to get outside your comfort zone.

Outliers: The Story of Success – This book got about six recommendations when the panel of presenters at last week’s Perform Better Summit were asked what they were reading.  I was one of the six; I’m reading it now and it’s fantastic.  And, if you haven’t read any of Malcolm Gladwell’s other stuff, check out those, too.

    For any of you folks taking Eric’s recommendations as required reading, ‘Outliers’ is no ‘Talent is Overrated’! Gladwell’s book is a much better, enjoyable read that you won’t need to try to force your way through.

    Being told not to squat is a load of crap. If the hips are the prime mover and not the knees, then what is the problem? I get tired of uneducated doctors, who know nothing about exercise tell patients not to squat.

    I loved Outliers, such a good book.

    All of Gladwell’s writing is top notch.
