About the Author
Greg Gatz is the director of strength and conditioning for Olympic sports at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he has served since 1998. In addition to overseeing facility management and the organisation of 20 sports teams, Gatz is in charge of programme design and execution for specific teams, including men's and women's soccer, baseball, wrestling, volleyball and track. Gatz has worked closely with several national championship teams at UNC: women's soccer (1999, 2000, 2003, 2006), men's soccer (2001), a volleyball team that finished with one of its highest national rankings ever (12) in 2002, and the 2006 national runner-up baseball team.

This book is usefu, in particular, for the high school athlete and coach, or older (collegiate) players and coaches. As one other reviewer noted, there's a lot of reading. Yep. But understanding the "why" of the exercises and the conditioning program are important, too. For younger players, time with the ball is a better way to spend time than conditioning.
For those simply looking for a conditioning checklist and don't care to understand the physiology involved, just Google "UNC Summer Conditioning Program." Again, for younger players, and many older ones, playing UNC's 1v1 to cones game will work wonders. F
For the coach or evaluator, or self-motivated older players, this is a great resource, along with Jens Bangsbo's book on soccer fitness.
