Good, basic book on dynamic stretching. Could use better photographs (photo quality was OK, the effectiveness of conveying movement actions was mediocre). Spends 20 pages on routines for various sports, none of which is the sport I'm directly interested in, but useful because I understand the demands of many of those sports, and can now figure out how to design program for my sport.
Short and to the point. Basically just a quick explanation of "dynamic stretching" vs "static stretching" and then a box of exercises with their benefits listed. Exercises are detailed with photographs for each part of the movement and the book includes specific movement combinations designed for various sports (football, soccer, tennis, hockey, track and field, etc).

A few new moves. Mostly it's stuff you can pick up during high school sports (or maybe we had awesome coaches). Strangely there were actually a few static stretches (any time you tell me to hold for x seconds, that's static). The pictures were black and white so when the models wear black makes it hard to see what they're doing. Which leg is crossed where, etc.
