The basic premise of "600 Push Ups - 30 Variations" is that "the push-up is the best, most complete upper body exercise", which explains why it is a core feature of military training. It shows the reader how to maximize upper body strength and endurance using push-ups, some running, and some basic calisthenics -- no need for expensive gym memberships.
The first of three parts contains a brief overview of the utility of push-ups and guidance on how to do them safely. The second is a fully illustrated manual on 30 different kinds of push-ups. He closes with the most important part, which is a series of several multi-week workout programs designed to get the reader into top condition.
Short, readable, fully illustrated, direct, and results-oriented: this book delivers exactly as advertised.

600 Push-ups 30 Variations is a handy little book, jam-packed with information. As a Black Belt and someone who travels frequently, I'm always on the lookout for ways to exercise, and often I don't have the to go to the gym. Bob's book offers a huge variety of exercises that require no equipment, no gym, and very little time.
600 Push-ups 30 Variations is also very well illustrated, with clear and detailed pictures of Bob demonstrating each of the exercises.
There are also excellent routines included - I especially enjoyed the 600 pushups incorporated into a 60 min run.
Like many things in life, it's the basics that you can fall back on and build upon, and this is exactly what Bob's book does.
