It favours tactical drills, in the same way other coaching books do with technical drills.
Must be read a number of times, and I found it particularly useful to actively play out (using Subuteo or connect four discs) the formations and the adjustments to the defensive shape made by the movement of attackers.
Really helped me understand the relationship between the midfield and backline.
Were some typos - I think a paragraph missing in the strategy and tatics chapter, however the book is focused on practical zonal shape so not much value in there anyway.
Particularly good chapters on double-teaming and off-side tactics.
This book is by no means an introductary soccer book, but it laid out the information in a clear consise staright forward manner. I purchased 2 more for my assistant coaches as well.
I wouldn't normally mention another review, but I have to say that I really disagree with the reviewer Sherri A. Rudy. Other books try to cram so much needless information into their diagrams creating a huge headache for the reader. The full page diagrams in this book make it very easy to read and understand. In my opinion this book is simple and straightforward instead of cluttered.
Another book that I highly recommend is "Zone Soccer: A Game of Time and Space" (http://www.amazon.com/Zone-Soccer-Game-Time-Space/dp/1591640679)
