I came across a link and there's a release of a book by one of those S&C gurus.

http://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Supple-Leopard-Preventing-Performance/dp/1936608588

Anyone think the book is good?

I've not read the book, but K-Starr is a top notch mobility coach and following his mobility wods has helped resolve a lot of my flexibility and mobility problems.

does the book actually provide simple routines that you can follow? my problem with his material is that a lot of it seems more like it is super targeted to highly specific problems, rather than providing a general pre-hab/wellness routine. so for example, if you are having horrible IT pain, he probably has a series of videos that will help you work through it. but if you are pain free and just want to become generally more flexible and limber throughout your body, his material doesnt seem to provide a practical method for achieving that goal....sure if you had an hour+ each day to dedicate to mobility his stuff might accomplish that, but thats not practical for most people.

i have only skimmed his mobilitywod site a few times, so please correct me if i'm wrong, but that was my impression.

Well it's set up as a daily 10-15 minute WOD to do. He goes back and forth over different body parts and various issues, so if you have no particular problem just spend the 10 mins a day following his WOD and you will become generally more flexible.

I just got a ship notice from Amazon that this shipped.  It will be delivered Monday.  I will be on a mountain in the middle of nowhere Sunday - Friday, so looks like I won't be able to say if it's any good for a while. :/

^ The Kool Aide is strong ^

That's not to say the book doesn't have merit.  I'm excited to see my copy.

Guess mine got delivered early.  I may bring it on the plane to read, but it weighs more than I typically deadlift.

I like the book. A lot of jargon, some PT, some his own, but once I got to the nitty gritty of why things hurt and how to fix them, it is well worth the $.
