He has some relatively minor problems with PP but, by comparison with some of the other reviews, he implicitly sings its praises. It's not like PP is above reproach or something. He is pretty harsh on Strongman though.
Rippetoe has released a DVD now. Have you much need of more complex training at this point in your training career? If you are doing a "SS like" program PP probably will not be that useful(yet) but I've found it invaluable both for direct use of the intermediate concepts in my training as well as getting a better picture of the overall theory of long term training.
