Default Weightlifting Books

Hello All,
I'm trying to compile a nice library of books on weightlifting so I can get myself as educated as possible on the lifts before going to any Coaching certifications. I may even go to the Moorestown training week the first week of July if I can swing it. I'd love to actually get to some gyms that have platforms and train with other lifters just to get a feel for the lifts, etc.

In any event, I've got Kono's Weightlifting Olympic Style, Newton's Explosive Lifting for Sport, Schmidt's bad ironmind book with dvd that won't work, and Dan John's from the Ground up. Last night I got Artie Drescher's Encloypedia of Weightlifing - good lord, it's going to take me a month of sunday's to read that thing. Small print, double columned prose, and very few illustrations. She's gonna be a struggle, but I ain't no quitter.

Are there any other good books out there I should add for my collection/influence/osmosis?

All the best,
