I have Starting Strength, reading Pavel's kettlebell book currently. I hear alot of talk of a book called "Supertraining".
I don't know if this is too general of a question ---but what should I be reading?
Greg Everett's Olympic Weightlifting is awesome. I reference and check it regularly. It's very good for addressing errors and correcting them.
Practical Programming is a good supplement to Starting Strength.
The Wendler 531 ebook is good if you're interested in trying that program. There's enough free "calculator" spreadsheets out there though that you don't necessarily need the manual.
