His book Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance (5th Edition-2014) would probably be what you'd want.

Here's his website (WFS).

Though I don't have any serious back problems I bought his book Back Mechanic: The Step-by-step McGill Method to fix back pain and it's some good stuff, though less aimed at athletes than the other one I mentioned above. Changed how I thought about some aspects of the back and core training.
Thanks David. I just ordered the book. Really appreciate the recommendation.
