Help Has Arrived Apr 20, 2003
This is an easy to read complete review of what you need to know to play golf well. After reading the book I made some adjustments to my grip, stance and swing plane and, combined with some minor arm strengthening exercises, I have increased the distance I hit each club in my bag by at least 10 yards. Every serious golfer should read this book. Ted Turner.

This book is a golfers dream. A simple instructional book that covers all aspects of the game. The only book I have found that writes out a practice program for you and tells you how to find a teacher as well. Great read and well written.
Simple but powerful Mar 5, 2003
Golf is sometimes so complicated that it's not worth all the expense and frustration, and other times so simple it's beautiful. Reading this book, I felt the feeling you get when working with a great teacher who simplifies (vs. complicates) the sport. There are some sections in this book that you don't find in others (fitness, how to find a teacher, and loads of quotes from great players) but the biggest help to me was the reveiw of the fundamentals. In the book, Rader wrote something about posture that I was off on - a quick fix (for me, it was bending at the hips) and I'm hitting it better than in the last five years. Go figure - 25 bucks to fix something my club pro would've charged 125 for...per session.

This book explains the fundamentals of the golf swing in a clear, concise easy to understand language. It also presents a realistic explaination of the practice and committment necessary to improve one's golf game and provides guideance on how to develop a self improvement program. Probably the best golf book I have read since the Ben Hogan classic analysis of the golf swing many years ago.
One of a kind Dec 31, 2002
This book is easy to read. It has humor and solid instruction for all level of golfers. Certainly worth giving to those I play golf with.
