Stretching Scientifically by Thomas Kurz

stretching scientificallyOne of the foremost texts for achieving real kicking flexibility in the martial arts, Kurz explains the complexities of how the body work, and how to take your flexibility to new heights—literally.

The science itself is pretty fascinating; Kurz shows how it's actually the body's nervous system that controls the stretching of muscles, using pain as a signal that the muscle is in danger of tearing. He goes on to explain how to strengthen the muscles so  they're prepared to stretch further, and how to 'help' your nervous system allow you to do this. Highly recommended.
