So here is the backdrop. I've been golfing off and on for 20 years (I am 45 now). I LOVE the game. Up until this year, though, I was horribly inconsistent at it. So much so that I was often embarrassed to go out and play in club outings, tournaments, etc. I would come home so down on myself. I said I was going to quit so many times.

This year things changed. I was sitting at a party and this guy started boring me about this book he read and how it changed his game. Yeah, yeah, I thought. But then I went on to Amazon and looked it up. $10 bucks. I figured its got to be worth a try.

Unbelievable!

This book is so simple. I have spent $100's or even $1,000's of dollars on golf lessons over the years and NONE of them came even 1/2 way to what this book has done for me (golf pros should be ashamed at themselves! They make you do these goofy things and they don't focus on the fundamentals). I read it three times in about a day and a half. The third time I read it with my club by my side (to try grips, etc.). The biggest breakthroughs for me were the grip (I had been doing it totally wrong for years) and the pattern of the on-plane arms, shoulders hips backswing to the hips, shoulders arms forward swing. Again, unbelievable! I hit it straighter, farther, etc. etc. It is so much fun! I feel like I actually know how to play the game! And when I start to go off kilter a little bit, I go back to Hogan's fundamentals and it all comes back. It's weird, I have been swinging wrong for so long...that doing it his way feels weird...but I'm coming to just trust it and not think about it...and I have more confidence to swing hard and just let it deliver.

this is not just a book. it's a work of art. it's a masterpiece. the drawings, the writing. it's sublime. it's american history. it's the foundation of all knowledge regarding the full swing. if you are a golfer, you must have it. reading it is like a meditation into the brain of a master.

A good short read that has some great information on the simple basics. If you're a newbie golfer, it had some good info on setup, grip, and posture. I'm sure there are better books, but its written by one of the best.

I was listening to everyone tell me do this do that.... finally said stop, heard about the book and got it. I realized that I had forgotten the pure basics, Ben brought me back the simple step by step basics, and then applied the mechanics and I started hitting the ball straight, consistently and lowered my score by 15...
Thanks Ben....

No joke, this is the book you want to get a good swing. Once you figure out what you're trying to accomplish with your body + the club (and some practice) you'll be able to unleash on the ball and bend it how you want. Simple as that. Makes hitting long balls a lot of fun as opposed to a dice roll.

It's simple.
If you read the entire book and honestly apply all of what Mr. Hogan describes you will gain a repeatable and reliable golf swing.
If you only take part of what he teaches and try to apply it to your current swing then you probably won't improve a great deal.

If you are new to the game please do yourself a favor and study this book. The advice is solid and each piece builds on the previous to produce a repeatable and very solid swing.
If you have been playing for years yet still struggle, study this book.

Great book for beginners and the golfer that find themselves needing to refresh his/her thinking on the golf grip and swing. Great explanation not only on how but why you should do something a certain way. Great visual graphics!

This book is a Gospel. I have given it to several friends. If you are a terrible golfer this book offers you hope. If you are a passable golfer this book will help you a great deal. If you are a good golfer looking to break through to greatness, read this book. Worth it for the illustrations alone.
