Editorial Reviews

Review

“A wonderful piece of golf writing…essential for all golfers.”

(Golf World)

“The six-time Major winner and former world No.1 takes a swing at dream rounds, wrong decisions and the lure of making a comeback.” (John Naughton GQ)

“Might be as good an instruction book as any we've seen in recent years. It's certainly the most handsome...If any 'how to' book is worth the money, this is one.” (Golfing)

"I love how Nick favored control over distance. His swing always had perfect rhythm and balance. Nick Faldo defied convention in his approach to developing his game to achieve the pinnacle of golf. I admire his single mindedness and his efficient approach to the game. He did it his way." (Luke Donald)

Nick Faldo has been a professional golfer since 1976, and has won more than forty tournaments and six major championships. He has spent ninety-eight weeks total as the world’s number one golfer. He is now primarily a television commentator and lead analyst for CBS and the Golf Channel.

I enjoy golfing and have been trying desperately to improve my game and lower my handicap so I purchased this book to help me improve my golf game. It made my purchase worthwhile. I had to relearn everything I needed to know from clubs to the process in playing the correct way made me improve my overall golf game. Nick provided the most efficient way to play golf. This book is priceless. After reading the book I went back over to read it again 3 times and actually learned that I had been playing it the wrong way and now after 5 game my handicap stands at 7. I'm enjoying golfing more than I have ever imagine. Thank you

OK, here is the deal.

The video links are messed up. But basically you use your I-phone or I-pad and TAG to create links which automatically go into your Youtube account. Then you can watch them from there.

I actually made a Youtube "playlist" of all of the Tag links. (Of course, you first have to download the Tag app.)

Then, combining the book and the videos - my goodness, Sir Nick must make almost 1000 points.

So my suggestion is to start with the basics (think the first 7 or 8 TAGs), and master all of this, before spending any time with the rest of the book.

On the videos he goes VERY fast, because he is trying to get as much info to you as possible. But basically the book explains these points in greater detail.

My suggestion: WATCH THE VIDEOS FIRST, then read more on each element of the game in the book.

Nick seems to REALLY care about his audience. I am sure he makes an extremely small fraction of his overall income from books like this.

Only one negative: it seems to me, at least, that he is secretly pushing the Trackman device, i.e., he is probably getting a kick back from them somehow. I hate to say this, because I just love Nick Faldo.

So just remember you don't need to purchase Trackman, to get a huge amount out of this book and the videos, which retail for only about $20.

Love the book. I am just a little disappointed that the videos were not enabled. That would have been a nice feature.

Simple,easy to follow and easy to implement ideas. I for one don't believe the game has to be that hard to learn you just have to understand what your trying to accomplish and Nick makes his approach to learning the game fairly easy to understand in this book. The video tags are a HUGE help in that regard. All video tags worked for me.
I have a lot of golf books, none better than this.

The size and heft of the book are amazing. It's about 10 inches x 12 inches and 274 pages of full color photographs, more like a coffee table book. It covers all aspects of golf: full swing, iron swing, short game, sand, chipping, putting. However, the most useful are the Microsoft Tags which you can scan with your tablet or phone. These go to proprietary YouTube videos which only this book owners can access. Each video shows Sir Faldo himself, talking you through an aspect of his swing thougts, and shows him hitting the shot, plus useful drills. If you learn better from video, these are immensely helpful. The book goes into much more detail, which can be tedious narrative, but it's there if you need it. Nick has highlited in yellow the key narrative, so you've got that going for you, which is nice. I haven't gotten 1/4 of the way through the book in a month, but have downloaded and watched all 23 of the videos. The book for me is more of a reference book, since I am an advanced golfer, but the book is fundamental for any golfer, beginner to advanced. The photography in the book shows step by step swing moves in color and is professionally done. A must-have for your golf library.
