I've made a lot more progress to 100 by focusing on various muscles that contribute to solid push-ups--the core, the shoulders, the pecs, good flexibility, and of course intense cardio. I'm not there yet but it's taken me further and faster than this book did--and I have better overall fitness as an aside.
My experience may help, 57 year old male of average fitness. I did 25 push ups to establish a base line, so I went to the Advance 1 program. The last set on Friday is really hard, so it is probably the correct level of effort. The warm ups make a difference, it easier for me, when I stretch before the sets. Not sure that this program does much for abs or glutes, as claimed on the cover, they never feel 'worked' post the work out.
Entering Week 4 I have lost 4 lbs and definitely gained some strength. I will go for a run, or do a leg workout, on the off days, but have not done any upper body exercises since starting. I could care less about acheiving 100, it is simply a target, if I get there, that will be great, if not, it remains a successful program. I am enjoying doing more push ups than I ever thought possible and have seen positive changes in the pecs and shoulders and I like the simplicity and purity of the movements.
The book is slight, some padding about world record holders and the like. These serve to make doing merely 100 seem pretty pathetic, so not sure that this section helps. The core of the book is the charting, and it seems to work and be easy. So I recommend it, include a run and a couple of Tabata routines on the off days and you will be fitter and stronger without spending a lot of time or money.
Update, completed the program, never did manage 100 straight off, certainly can do well over 100 with short breaks < 1 minute. Certainly feel it was worthwhile pursuing and have several colleagues who have started the program and also seen very positive results
The program has worked well for me. The first time I followed it, I started at the easiest level, wall push-ups. Over the course of several weeks, I moved through the table push-ups, chair push-ups, knee push-ups, and finally got to the standard push-ups. By the time I stopped several months later, I could do about 15 standard push ups in a row, which is a 1500 percent increase over what I started with. My posture improved, I gained a lot of strength, and I was less fatigued sitting at the computer for long hours. In short, if your goal is modest as mine was and you simply want to build some upper body strength to compliment other activities like running, I think this is a good program.
However, as with so many books that are converted for Kindle, this one has some problems. First, the charts are the most important part of the book. Without the charts, the book is useless. In the Kindle edition, the charts are so small that they are barely readable. Second, this version doesn't have searchable page numbers. So when the author indicates that the preliminary charts are on page 120, you'll still need to do quite a bit of work to find them. Overall: great book, Kindle edition lacking.
