This is literally "1001 Practical Tips." Most of these quotes are fewer than 150 words in length. This is a compilation a "tip" and attribution, then the next tip and attribution with a picture added on most pages. No long lectures on why this training philosophy is better than everyone else's. Pretty well organized, and if the first quote in a section isn't what your looking for, there are usually four or five additional quotes.

If you are looking for a tip to help with a particular problem, this book might have what you need.

Otherwise, this book is very much like reading a dictionary. The training tips are organized alphabetically. Some tips might be useful but a lot are just common sense.

I was a little disappointed because I was expecting new and interesting training ideas, but most of these tips aren't new or revolutionary.

This book is so good that it makes me read it all over again.
