This book is the best for “scope” when it comes to what actually matters in pitching. Part II the Art of Pitching has good “depth”, covering, Developing an Arsenal; how to use the strike zone, and how to throw different pitches; The Role of the Catcher, the pitcher/catcher relationship; Pitching with a Plan, how to pressure the strike zone and attack hitters; Fielding the position, basic pitcher defensive plays; The Mental Game, the me vs you, and me vs me battles.
Part III is probably the most useful part of the book. Derek Johnson basically gives you his college year round throwing program, and if you are not a moron can tailor it to what you are doing. Part III includes Arm Strength and Injury Prevention, Total-Body Conditioning for pitchers, In-Season Throwing Routines, and Year-Round Programming.
Part I, first chapter Foundation, great chapter, focuses on why we pitch, it boils down to joy. The rest of Part I covered mechanics, and basically better than most books, but I expected more. The section was somewhat hard to follow with multiple examples of possible ways and some were not what Johnson teaches but something to throw in the book. I actually bought the book to get a mechanical breakdown, and just didn’t find what he was teaching detailed to my liking. I have actually found some other books with a more complete breakdown of mechanics that are along the some blueprint as Johnson.
In the end I am going to read this book over and over again until I memorize it, and after I am done with that the frame will be in place to add the other details.
