OK, by request (and it is a good idea) this section is devoted to starting a thread on a book that the forum viewers think would be good reading in terms of all aspects of fitness. I think that the best way to start a thread would be to list the book(s) title(s) in the subject line. Feel free to clump more than one into a thread. IMHO, this would make the titles readily visible for an easy search through. I'll have to take a lookthrough the sites bookstore, beause I know they have some of my favorites in there and it would jog my memory a bit.

I'd suggest reviews both of books that forum members think are "good reading", and those that they think are less helpful. It might spark some interesting discussion, and it might save somebody the price of a book.

Sure, if you feel like reviewing magazines, I see no problem with that. Journals, etc, also welcome.

e-books (PDFs) would clearly be books.

I figure there isn't much point in reviewing free PDFs even if they are good ones, because people can just get them free and read the actual product. But are purchase-only PDFs fair game?

What about DVDs? Not books, but often expensive enough you want a review first.

If a pfd sparks a good discussion, then it should be allowed a thread.

I agree, there's a large selection of free PDFs out there and people might not seek them all out (or know where to), and I think reviews could help promote interest in them.

In particular I have a large interest in the old-time strength books on SandowPlus. They're rather spread out amongst others which are only so far available as web pages. It'd be nice to set up a torrent for those ancient public domain works.
