I think that this book does an excellent job of explaining some of the more difficult rules to remember in the game. I'll admit, when I bought it, I was kind of hoping for something I could keep in my golf bag, but this is just a bit too large for that. For those who are interested, though, the USGA website does sell a handbook for just that. They offer it for free. You just have to pay the shipping.
The reason why I bought this book anyway is because I wanted something that might help me to remember some of the nuances a little bit better. For instance, in stroke play competition, it is not legal to take a break to get shelter from rain unless play is suspended by the committee. In match play, it is legal to do so. The illustration that the book provided made this little nuance very difficult to forget.
So for anyone who plays golf regularly but does not have a rule book, I think this is a good first one to get. Even for a veteran who is looking for something to keep at home to refer to once in a while, this is a good buy. Heck, even someone on the rules committee who needs an official book to make judgments during a tournament will do well with this book. The only negative is simply the fact that it is not the book to lug around in your golf bag unless you're Rodney Dangerfield.
