Julius Boros' book is certainly lean (158 pages) but still manages to cover all the fundamentals of the golf swing without neglecting anything.
The bulk of the book is about the basic golf swing you will need to hit the ball consistently, and with good distance. He begins by explaining how spin affects ball flight, an invaluable section for the beginning golfer.
The rest of the book unfolds in a predictable, common sense approach. Grip, stance, ball position, etc. He then moves into swing mechanics and ends up with specialty shots (sand, difficult lies, etc) and what to look for when buying clubs. These end sections are not covered in much depth (for short game study, I recommend Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible), but are still instructive.
This is, without question, the single best instructional book on the golf swing that I've read, and I've read plenty. I think it's brevity is really helpful, as it allows anyone to learn about, or reacquaint themselves with the proper golf swing.
A real gem!
For years, I was forcing the swing by a grip that was too tight. I was also doing too much with my hands with the result that my drives were seldom longer than 170 yards. You can't force a long drive, you have to let it happen with an easy swing.
The book has lots of pictures so you can see just how it is done and Boros explains it very well. Wish I had read it 30 years sooner.
All of this and the price is right.
