In fairness to the authors, I purchased their book because of the pretty picture on the front cover as well as the organization of the table of contents. I completely agree with other reviewers who found this book to be an excellent fitness book. There is little doubt any person who engages in the contents will be more fit and able to play better golf ... stronger, more flexible, more stable, in better balance and less prone to injury!
The overall organization of the book is excellent. It logically and correctly flows through the necessary progress for improved strength and flexibility being precursors for improved balance, stability and injury resistance. The authors correctly write about how the golf swing and the teaching of the game have improved due to technology (high speed cameras and biomechanics labs). The largest change has been from a hand and arm dominated viewpoint to a "big muscle", body centered motion which sums forces in a kinetically linked chain. Moving from the ancient to the modern creates a need to better understand how the body, not the arms must function.
Having said these positive things, it is also necessary to point out some problems with the book.Read more ›
