Out of the books on your list, I'd only recommend Kurz' "Stretching Scientifically." I have Bompa's book,and it's written for bodybuilders on steroids and many supplements. Boyle is crap, and I've heard bad reviews of Kramer's and Fleck's books.

I would recommend Christian Thibadeau's "Black Book of Training Secrets" and "Theory and Application of Modern Strength and Power Methods." I'd also recommend Arthur Dreschler's "Encyclopedia of Weightlifting." It has a lot more than just weightlifting content in it. It talks about periodization, strength training, stretching, sport psychology, etc.

I'm also intrigued by the RTS Manual that DVS recommended. I have just ordered it.
