This book does provide a solid overview of push-up variations. However, most of the push-ups are shown in picture format only, with no descriptions. You would think that most people wouldn't need descriptions but unfortunately that's a bad assumption. I see people all the time performing the push-up incorrectly with the elbows flared out to the max and using super fast tempos in order to get as many reps as they can through the added momentum. That being said, a trainer wouldn't have any problems with the book but a complete newbie probably would.

The book does show some push-up variations not covered in other titles like "The Ultimate Guide To Push-ups". I am glad to see suspended push-ups and push-up handles demonstrated. However, "The Ultimate Guide To Push-Ups" does include some push-up variations not found in this title as well. The two titles together represent a comprehensive collection of push-up variations.

If you want a complete arsenal of push-ups, just for the sake of variety I would recommend getting both "The Power of Pushups" and "The Ultimate Guide To Push-Ups" by David Nordmark.

There is one in there where you suspend a weight from your neck that I wouldn't advise most people to do.

Other than that, a good book.
