I was trying really hard to get this book via internet, but i just couldnt get it. So youll imagine my suprise as i walked into a bookstore in Slovenia and see it on the shelf.And now to the review.This book has something to offer to any climber, regardless of hes/her skill and experience. It offers some really good new insight into how climbing works and what the best ways to train are.I also have Performance rock climbing, but TSCC is better. And a big part of its quality comes from the DVD that comes with the book. Some of the techniques described could be confusing, especially for a beginner, despite the HQ pictures in the book itself. DVD is a really welcome addition and really fulfills the package. And the last video about redpointing really focuses on how using proper technique makes all the difference (i wish there were more than just one such video analysis, the volume of information in it is immense).So, in short, there is nothing in this book that i would call bad. The only thing i would change, as i stated previously, is adding some more analysis of actual climbs.5* for sure.
