i actually have his book. i haven't looked at it in a while though. i used it when i used to jump rope every morning (back then i literally weighed 40-50# less). i just started up again initially for conditioning, but now that i'm remembering how fun it can be, i was curious how much other crap i could stop doing while focusing on JR.
i should probably look at the book again, but i was curious what you guys thought. IIRC, the book didn't explain much more on technique than you could find online. i'd have to read over the programs again.
