Excellent content. Many stretches, reasonably well-organized, and displayed using simple diagrams.
What I don't like- There are many effective stretches that aren't included. Especially: Isometric Stretching is not mentioned. Isometric stretching is considered (at least by the author of "Warrior Speed") to be by far the most effective way to increase your flexibility. It seems kind of ridiculous to me that it isn't covered in this book.
Overall its a great book, although you'll find plenty of info elsewhere that is not covered by this book. (Therefore it shouldn't be considered a *complete* guide to stretching IMHO.) A large section of this book is dedicated to sports-specific stretches, but you'll probably find this section almost useless compared to other books specific to your sport of choice.
