If you're looking for a comprehensive book on plyometrics, check this one out. We use his system, and I can personally testify ... it works!
The important part, of course, is the exercises themselves and the program design. There are nearly 100 exercises, each of them identified by symbols that show what sport can benefit most by a particular exercises. The exercises are divided into different sections: Jumps-in Place, Standing Jumps, Multiple Jumps, Box Drills, Bounding, and Medicine Ball. There is also a Sport-Specific chapter and sample programs for some top athletes. Programs include those designed for Lindsay Davenport (Women's pro tennis player, Rex Walters (NBA Basketball player), and Anthony Munoz (All-Pro offensive tackle).
This book includes information and exercises that can be implemented immediately into most strength and conditioning programs. I can highly recommend this book.
