Written in the early '70s, Golf My Way is the first of the truly modern instructionals mixing physics and kinesiology with theory and technique. The writing's a little dense, but the illustrations are quite good, and some of the mental exercises nothing less than revolutionary. If there's a caveat to Golf My Way, it's that Jack's way works for Jack's game, and may not mesh with yours. Then again, this is the book that introduced Ernie Els to golf, and look what he's done. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Jack Nicklaus was born in 1940 in Columbus, Ohio, and maintains a home there and in Florida. Widely regarded as the greatest golfer of all time, he has achieved a record twenty major championship victories, consisting of two U.S. Amateurs, six Masters (also a record), four U.S. Opens, three British Opens, and five PGA Championships. The winner of more than 100 professional tournaments around the world, Nicklaus was named Golfer of the Century in 1988.
Ken Bowden was the editorial director of both Europe's and America's premier golf magazines, and has collaborated with Nicklaus on eleven books. Since first watching Nicklaus compete in 1959, Bowden has witnessed a great many of Jack's achievements first-hand.

book is nice to read and the narrator is clearly present and opposed to being pretty detached, such as the seven laws of the golf swing book.
That's good, since the advice given is nothing almost every golfer has not heard in other books or from his pro. It is a bit dated advice wise. For instance, Jack gives a fair amount of advice particular to long irons, yet most of us today use hybrids. Transferring the knowledge is difficult, and maybe not possible. Also, Jack relies on his own physiological characteristics in developing his style which might not be very applicable to those with other characteristics such as leg strength and hand size. Be cautious of imitation!
In some ways this book is a good antidote for those addicted to golf. While Jack still plays he seems to have formed a greater attachment to tennis for personal pleasure. Nevertheless, I really liked the book because it seems to reveal the real person underneath the legend. And, Jack is a very interesting person.
