By Mr. R. J. Wyndham VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I came across a reference to Cindy and was intriqued by a lady obtaining such prestigious golf positions - and also setting up a school in China. Further investigation showed that she took up golf much later in life than is the norm - at 24 years old. She considers that this means that she has had to learn from an adult prospective, rather than learning ths basics at a very early age. This struck a chord with me, as mature learners tend to look at things in a more analytical way, rather than just copying swings at a really young age.

The fact that it is written for woman didn't concern me, as I tend to think that seniors golfers are better studying lady golfers, rather than the ultra powerful men professionals.

The book itself is well written, very readable and, I guess from her own history, seemed sympathetic to the learning style of mature golf students.

I took a chance and bought a second hand copy, and am very pleased with my purchase.

Choosing one's "main instruction manual" can be a question of teaching and teacher styles. I'm sure a number of players would find this book very useful. There are some references to lady specific swing issues, but I think it is equally good reading for men golfers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelllent 18 Jun 2011
By Culture Enthusiast TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very well written, the book addresses learning to play golf from a woman's point of view. Cindy has a very engaging writing style and she points out some technical issues that are women's only. Additionally she focuses on learning to play golf as an adult. I really like the book's layout (quality pictures and step by step explanations) and the honesty of the author: stay away from ladies balls, they are a gimmick and repackaged rejects. Useful section on etiquette and fitness. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 21 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A straightforward and extremely helpful look at golf for women (and men too). Cindy has been able to educate me in simple and a straighforward manner about golf and instructional tips to improve my game. I am excited and have renewed energy to approach golf from a different point of view without feeling intimidated by the game, rules, or people that are playing at a higher level.
She has the obvious ability to cut through the unnecessary "stuff" and get to the point by explaining and utilizing non-techincal and easily understandable techniques. I look forward to getting her instructional video also. Thanks Cindy for making the game more fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for beginners 3 July 2008
By Tami M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just recently started playing golf and took a few lessons. I found this book supported everything my instructor said and really cemented what I was learning. It is an instructional book but I found it easy to read and difficult to put down! Definitely a great book for someone just starting out. It was motivational and provided an overview of the golf swing, etiquette, and included some exercises to improve your "golf fitness".

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just ok 14 Jun 2012
By Jenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am just starting to learn the game. I have taken a few lessons from the pro at our club and figured reading up on the sport could't hurt. The illustrations and photos were good and the book had a few tips that I hadn't heard before, but other than that I wasn't impressed. It kept repeating you won't be any good unless you spend 8-10 hours a day practicing. I know that practice is important, and maybe this book is geared more towards the women who don't have jobs or a family. I have read both Golf is a Woman's Game, and Womens Guide to Golf, both of which I enjoyed and learned more from.
