Peter Schreiner has a long and illustrious history as a coach of a German professional youth academy and his own programs. He's somewhat of a disciple of Horst Wein, the so-called "coach of coaches" who established the Barca youth academy, among his many credentials.
This book is excellent. Schreiner's program marries Coerver-style footskills training with Wein's youth development program. The exercises are designed to provide a significant number of repetitions to achieve technical perfection, but they also permit and promote individual decision-making and vision (the former is allegedly a weakness of the Coerver method). The book provides a slate of varied exercises and progressions to ensure player progression, and there is enough in here to keep any kids busy for many seasons.
Some of the methods and exercises here are duplicates of Schreiner's dvd "The German Touch," but there are many more exercises as well, every one of which is really solid. Us of techniques like those in this book are a reason that the German development approach is starting to receive international accolades (and of course the national teams are quite successful).
This is no a good book for coaches looking to play "traditional" kick and chase soccer. The system here is do develop players in the so-called "continental" style, with possession and a solid short passing game. A coach adopting the methods here will likely see his or her team lose a few games that they could win if it played kick and chase, but in the long run, the kids will develop better.
This book, the English-language books by Horst Wein, and Ruiz's books are among my very favorite soccer coaching books.
