Read it, ignore the "press swing, level swing, disadvantages of the Rotation System (as he calls it), hands start the swing". Mike Epstein talks too much about weight on the back leg and tilting backwards. Steve Ferolli is pretty good.

What Gwynn believes in and teaches is completely different from what he actually did. Williams generally taught what he did. He recognized that he swung slightly up to contact. Gwynn believes in swinging down.
