Boyle or Robertson

I have just enough money to buy either the efficient athlete by Robertson/Cressey or Functional Strength Coach by Boyle.
In your opinion, which one should I get?
I am especially interested in opinions by people who actually own either/both.
I am looking to getting into some personal training and the current available materials are way to basic and don’t seem to help much.
thanks

I have BTEA and recommend it due to all the functional tests that are included. Of course, I doubt you can go wrong with either selection.

I also have BTEA and think it is a very valuable tool. I’m not sure about the other one, but I was definitely satisfied with BTEA. It has a lot of tests and I got a lot out of the exercise demonstrations because I was actually doing some things wrong. I do not know about the other choice.

Thank you for your help. I will wait for a couple or more posts before I make my expensive decision.
Here are links to both, just so everybody knows what I am talking about.
