If the author had made the book a little more substantial with pictures and tutorials it would have scored higher.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The book is divided into 10 chapters that break down speed training into skill sets to understand and work on. All facets of each capability are explored, with guidance on improving mentally, reflexively and physically. Having the Speed Loop framework defined explicitly creates a true mental preparedness for implementing the training, giving the sense of understanding that inspires doing the work to apply those concepts to personal training goals. Really solid approach to learning and coaching.
Tons of drills are well-described, and many were innovative techniques you can use anywhere, during committed training time and also throughout your day. I think in this way Barnes gets you to pivot your thinking so that speed optimization becomes a way of life, of looking at every moment, even when you are playing with your dog. Maybe this is the key to superior fighting. Definitely a lifechanger full of fresh, useful coaching.
Plus: Straight to the point, no fluff. At least half of the ideas are truly great.
Cons: Some ideas seemed really, really silly. Snatch toy faster than your dog? Read vinyl records spinning at different speeds? Sure, they work but come on.
Still, I would rather have half a book's worth of great ideas than not.
It is easy to follow and very useful.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to speed up their reaction time in the mmm.
