I loved this book and found a lot of useful training information in it, it was very comprehensive. However, this book is geared toward a coach or a very serious player, I am a rec player who gets to play one hour a week with no practice time on the ice at all, and I am lucky to squeeze three hour workouts a week into my busy schedule. I don't have time for aerobic conditioning 2-3 times a week, lifting wieghts, doing speed drills, etc, etc, plus taking rest days, not to mention actually practicing skating and really playing hockey! I would love to quit my job and condition for hockey all day, but it isn't likely to happen. That said, I was able to use the information in the book to develop my own workout program within my time constraints, to get the most benefit from what time I do have.
