Have read a plethora of golfing instruction books that have contorted me into ungodly positions, confused me to the point of questioning my sanity and generally leading to the standard of my golf marching rapidly in the wrong direction. This book is brief, easy to understand and the title explains it all. The book runs with one concept throughout, that is repeated again and again to give you confidence you are understanding it. It clears the decks of all the hints and tips you have picked up from magazines, tipsy friends after a good round, instructions books thicker than the Bible and just gives you one clear feeling to aim for. You will enjoy your golf more because your head will be free of all the counterintuitive thoughts and you ball striking will improve. If you are only going to one instruction book, whatever your standard, this should be it

Have been playing the game for 29 yrs and in the last 2 years decided to really work at my game was stuck at 8 handicap [not a good 8 either] .have read some great books took a few lessons, and watched countless hours of Great golfers swings on YouTube again and again.
Well I saw George knudsons golf swing and saw he had wrote a book . bought it off Amazon and he describes the swing action perfectly my 5 last rounds since reading the book have been 71 ,67,72,69 70 the 69 I hit 17 out of 18 greens. I picked up 30 yards of the tee,hit my 9 iron up to 145 yds and it feels so easy all this with no warm up before the rounds no range time ,I can honestly say I feel like I own my swing now .
It is a great book and I recommend it to any body who wants to improve their game

This swing technique has turned my game around, and it's still going from strength to strength as I work out further tweaks based on what I learned in this book. My previous best instruction manuals were those written by Tom Watson, which I have no need to read now. I can not recommend this book highly enough, and I am grateful that the author chose to share his secrets with the rest of us struggling golfers before he died. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars, for two reasons; it is a bit repetitious at times, and I find that his recommendation for the ball position to be simplistic and is the only bit I found that I couldn't apply to my game.
