So, if my purpose is to alleviate that pain when Ive had two-a-days and the advice is to stop playing, it isnt really helpful.
Also, while there was a plethora of citations in some places like the benefits of eccentric exercises, there also seemed to be quite of bit of information being passed along as truth without any citations or references. The nutrition section was particularly troubling to me because while some of his claims my have some basis, I think they were exggargerated and loaded.

Sure, some days were better than others were, but I was still in pain and my athletic performance was severely handicapped. The worst part was that every time I thought I had made progress, the pain returned. The whole experience was so depressing that I almost quit playing my sport.
