Very little concrete and specific details on how to hit. Lots of evidence that ground balls are bad. After reading this book, I do not feel like have a better understanding of how to teach kids not to hit ground balls. Additionally, all of this information is available for free on different parts of the author's website. In summary, it is a tease for you to buy more of his products. However, the author does nothing to convince you that he has is capable of teaching you to hit effectively. A major disappointment!
This book IS the new age of hitting. Explanations are thorough, backed by excellent examples. Good to have this out in the world to back up what I've been trying to do in my neck of the woods. There is enough failure in baseball, why subject kids to more by not teaching this style.
I have been following Joey Myers' teaching and website for a few years now. I have used this and other products to teach my son to crush baseballs. He is a sophomore on his varsity team and has replaced older players because he can bang. A lot of what he knows and does is because of Joey's teachings.
While I agree with his opinion, this was basically a glorified internet article. Very short. If you read the chapter headings, you'll basically get the same amount of information as if you were to read the whole book.
Quick pointed discussion on hitting philosophy with scientific data to back up claims and links for further information. Good self check if you are a coach, great parent teacher if you are trying to help your kid.
