    I also have read the book several times; you pick up helpful nug

    I also have read the book several times; you pick up helpful nuggets each time through. Particularly enlightening are the quotes from the pros - little snippets that are easy to remember so you can recall them in crucial situations. This is really an awesome instructional reference. I only rated four stars because I wanted more - how righties should pitch lefties, strategies for different pitch counts, pitch sequences, reading a batter, etc. I realize these are advanced topics but the book's title does contain the word "complete" and the book doesn't quite feel complete. That being said, I can't imagine not owning it. It's certainly worth the money and I am definitely not done rereading, and learning, from it. By the way, I'm not a kid. I'm a 50 year old who pitches for an over-40 league team. This is a beginning through intermediate pitching tutorial for all ages and all but the most advanced in the pitching craft.

    A Complete Guide to Piching

    I have read this book several times and each time I discover something different. The instruction is complete and easy to understand. Great for parents and coaches trying to get young pitchers off to the right start.
