Great, Great, Great! 29 janvier 2011
Par Patrick Bidelman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Complete Guide to Slowpitch Softball by Rainer and Julie Martens is superb. It reminds me of a time long ago in Detroit, Michigan, when everyone on our 18-and-under national championship baseball team had to attend mandatory three-hour chalk-talks every Friday night. The goal was to make us aware that, no matter how capable we might be athletically, we'd never reach our potential unless we trained our imaginations to see the game fully in our minds-eye and developed a focused inner calm that would enable us to perform under pressure. If a text like the Complete Guide had been available then for baseball, it would have made a mighty contribution to our youthful grasp of the game.

The Complete Guide exhaustively covers the fundamentals of slowpitch softball from hitting, fielding, and base running to offensive tactics, defensive alignments, cut-off plays, and much, much more. In addition, it provides unique insights into three other facets of the game. First, there are lengthy and highly informative sections on health, training, diet, and injuries. Second, the book reports innumerable scientific findings pertaining to matters such as the physics of ball flight under different weather conditions, the weight-speed calculation in selecting a bat, the swing speed-accuracy balance in striking the ball (Fitt's Law), vision training (Dynamic Acuity and Quite Eye), and why balls curve and dip (Bernoulli Principle and Magnus Force).

Finally, as might be expected from authors with Doctorates in Sport Psychology, the Complete Guide accords great emphasis to the psychological and emotional dimensions of the game. There's an entire chapter on "Mental Preparation," with a fascinating section on what the authors call "flow," being in the "zone" of optimum confidence, control, and focus. Also emphasized in this chapter and elsewhere throughout the book is the importance not only of individual preparation but also the interpersonal relationships that spell the difference between team cohesion or player discord.

I have only one quibble with the Complete Guide. It fails to emphasize that slowpitch softball, like most games and sports, is rooted in tradition and conventional wisdom, and that, consequently, as you reflect on the text and the excellent DVD that accompanies it, you need also to keep your mind open to the unorthodox, the innovative, and the unconventional. Otherwise, the Complete Guide is without doubt the most comprehensive and thought-provoking book ever written about slowpitch softball, a must read for players who wish to improve their game.

Highly Recommened 20 janvier 2011

Format: Broché
The Complete Guide to Slow Pitch Softball Is by far the most comprehensive book on slow pitch softball ever written. I speak from experience, having played, managed and sponsored slow pitch softball teams for over fifty (50) years and still an active player at age 70. This book is of value to a wide variety of softball enthusiasts from the non-playing spouses of players who just want to get a basic understanding of the game to the most experienced player looking to get a better grasp of the finer points on the game. From the rules of the game to defensive and offensive instructions and strategies to coaching philosophies this book has it all. In addition an outstanding instructional CD is included that superbly demonstrates all of the instructional aides defined in the book. If you like softball you'll love the book.

Best slowpitch softball title 17 janvier 2011
Par Chad Hoffman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've played my share of slowpitch softball over the last 20 years. I love the strategic elements and nuances of the game, and it keeps me coming back to the ballpark year after year. The book provides a great look at the fundamentals, strategic elements, and team aspects of the sport. It's ideal for a beginner and a must-read for someone who has played the game for a long time like me. There are winning tactics, tips and advice, and a number of drills in this book and DVD combination that can't be found elsewhere.

The book augmented by the DVD is very comprehensive. It covers all aspects of the game from hitting, pitching, fielding, offensive and defensive strategies, conducting a practice, injuries, etc.. The DVD helps to illustrate the key areas. As a senior player, I am very satisfied with it.

Well the muscle has shifted a bit but I really wanted to again start playing softball. I had forgotten so much from when I was much younger that the game was more work than fun. This book is great to help you remember some of the things you have lost. It shortened my learning curve quite a bit and really made my practice sessions better and more productive. I am certainly enjoying the game once more and feel myself getting into shape again.
