I was dealing with an injury that my traditional stretching routine seemed to only make worse. This is a new way of thinking as to the LENGTH of time to hold a stretch and using repetitions. The book is fairly comprehensive as to stretches for different sports. Some illustrations of how to do a certain stretch are a little hard to discern. Also, I wish there was a little more information on stretching injured muscles. I continue to have 'rebound' tightening. Perhaps I just need more time.
