The book is quite decent.

El-Hewie is a goofy bastard, though.

What I like is the whole "foreign" feel of the book. It's written and edited by those who speak English as a second or third language, and there are some unintentionally hilarious typos.

Nutrition is a bit dated.

I'd say it's worth being in the library of anyone who wants an Olympic lifting reference.

I'd say:

The Weightlifting Encyclopedia by Dreschler
The Tommy Kono OL book
then maybe El Hewie's book
