"I have known Danny Camargo since he was a National Junior Champion weightlifter and Junior World Team member.  I have known his first coach Bill “Coach Mac”  McDaneil before I knew Danny.  I always thought Coach Mac was a great coach and Danny is proof of that.  I was sorry that Danny didn’t continue with his own competitive weightlifting, but he is certainly making a great contribution with his coaching.  This book Olympic Weightlifting, Cues & Corrections is excellent.  It’s very precise, to the point, and understandable.  I strongly recommend this book to all coaches who teach the snatch and clean & Jerk, whether for sports performance, competitive weightlifting, crossfit, or for fun and  exercise."
-Jim Schmitz, US Olympic Team Coach 1980, 88, & 92, USA Weightlifting President 1988-96

"Carmago's book does an excellent job of delivering the fundamental weightlifting information our sport needs more of.  The ideas and tips he provides are terrific resources for both new coaches and experienced veterans."
-Matt Foreman, author of Bones of Iron and Olympic Weightlifting for Masters
