This book takes a user-friendly, hands-on approach to providing a variety of drills to teach novice athletes and help advanced throwers improve their technique. After my 35-plus years of coaching throwers, it is fantastic to finally see all the drills a coach and athlete need in a simple, yet highly informative, instructional manual. This book provides an amazing resource and should be used by track & field coaches and athletes at all competitive levels.
