The beauty of this book is that it provides a self assessment test that anyone can do, and after this, exercises/stretches to correct weaknesses, improve flexibility and stability, and build from there. I've been using his methods for 4 weeks, and when done in the thoughtful, deliberate manner he recommends, it works. Figure that wherever you are presently-you didn't get there overnight-so, no surprise, time and correct effort and mental thought are the keys to getting better.
Gray's talk at Google, which is on YT is worth a listen.
I think that if you read this book you will understand why I changed my training. Dr. Cook does a great job of explaining why we need movement-based exercises as opposed to muscle-isolating exercises. This book is one of his early works, written before he completed work on the FMS, but all of his basic ideas that went into the FMS are here.

My one compliant is that the book is that when I bought the book I thought I was buying a guide to the FMS, or something that would include the whole FMS. But the book actually does not contain a lot of info for the shoulder. It misses out that part of the FMS, which I find frustrating.
Apart from that I would highly recommend this excellent text.
