Some of the great things about this book:
*The section on "How to Stretch" is a must read. I learned things that I did not know before and the "correct" way to stretch.
*Describes what not to do and illistrates with pictures and vice versa
*Gives different variations of how to stretch for different activites (and shows them in the correct order to get the maximum benefit), for example: stretches for your back, for your hands, sitting stretches, gardening, stretches for kids, learning the splits, there is a whole section for stretches at the office, and for just about any sport you can think of.
*Resources and tips for caring for your back PNF stretching, body tools, recommended reading, and stretching prescriptions
*Extensive index that is very helpful
Well written with decent illustrations, I would recommend this book to tohers.
