There's a great book called "Stretching" by Bob Anderson. Get it.
He illustrates with drawings how to do the stretches. The location of the stretch is illustrated by shading the appropriate area of the body. He also gives illustrations of what it looks like if you are doing the stretch incorrectly. There are also written instructions, and these instructions are very clear.
In the other section of the book there are stretching routines specific sports and time estimates for each routine, as well as stretches for desk work, stretches for people over 50 yrs old, etc.
I have used that book for years. Recently, I have been doing yoga, and I remember very distinctly my first yoga class thinking that his stretches had to come from yoga. Frankly, it took a lot of yoga classes to get the same information I got from this book. For me, the "this is how not to do it" illustrations were just as valuable (if not more) than the "how-to".
