At forty-three years old, Nolan Ryan is a marvel. He is still blowing his fastballs by hitters at an age when most pitchers have long since retired—or have learned to depend on guile instead of power. But the Ryan express keeps chugging on, getting more unhittable, not less.  Nolan Ryan's Pitcher's Bible tells us the secrets of Ryan's success. Drawing on Ryan's practical experience and Tom House's research expertise, it shows how the right combination of exercise and motivation can help a pitcher develop to his greatest potential.

Nolan Ryan's Pitcher's Bible includes:

-Nolan Ryan's complete fitness program for pitchers—including weight training, aerobic exercise, and diet—based on the latest scientific research and his twenty-four years of experience as a major leaguer.

-The most up-to-date methods for preventing arm injuries by establishing proper mechanics, a conditioning base, and throwing work loads.

-A timetable for keeping a pitcher in top shape year-round, including specific exercise intervals to meet the individual strength demands of each pitcher's throwing motion, maximum velocity, and maximum weekly number of pitches.

-An in-depth presentation of Ryan's pitching strategy—how he prepares himself mentally for a game, an analysis of his pitch selection for different types of hitters, and how he applies his training regimen to improving his effectiveness on the mound.

Illustrated with black-and-white photos of Ryan in action, along with photos and line drawings of the recommended exercises, Nolan Ryan's Pitcher's Bible is the ultimate book on pitching, by the ultimate pitcher.

Player Biography
With a dominating fastball and an unsurpassed work ethic, Nolan Ryan’s career spanned four decades and culminated with 5,714 strikeouts. Ryan threw so hard – and could be so wild – that Reggie Jackson described the Texas native as “the only guy who could put fear in me. Not because he could get me out, but because he could kill me. You just hoped to mix in a walk so you could have a good night and go 0-for-3.” Often among the league leaders in strikeouts, Ryan won 324 games and pitched a major league record seven no-hitters, three more than any other hurler in history. In 2008, Ryan assumed the role of team president of the Texas Rangers.
