An excellent book spelling out the biomechanical principles for the body turn is -
Technique Development in Tennis Stroke Development, B. Elliott, M. Reid, M, Crespo. Available from the ITF for about $25.

I have recently been putting more body turn into a few returns and it works right away for more pace. As of now, its difficult for me to time under pressure in doubles - but I'm a believer.
Thank you for valuable information, appreciate.
