1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish - a feeble attempt to cash-in on Hogan's name, 14 April 2008
By 
The title of this book suggests interest within, and potential value, for the golf - and, especially, Hogan - enthusiast. But the title is misleading. This book is rubbish.
Clearly it is an "instant" book (and a poor one at that) produced by cobbling together some miscellaneous anecdotes about Hogan alongwith some swing observations by the author. The anecdotes may be of some interest to someone who knows little about Hogan - though more, and better, Hogan anecdotes can be had for free on the internet. And Andrisani's swing observations demonstrate his utter lack of understanding of Hogan's writings about the swing or even of basic golf technique. For example Andrisani - presumably lacking any awareness of Hogan's very well-known reputation as the purist of ball strikers - suggests that one of Hogan's secrets was striking his pitches fat. How does such misleading rubbish get published?
Having subsequently looked at some of Andrisani's other books of golf instruction (sic) it is clear that 'instant', misleading, low-grade fare characterises Andrisani's output.
To properly understand the "Hogan Way" read, instead, Hogan's own unsurpassed books. Alternatively, if you want Hogan second-hand, read Leadbetter's book on Hogan which, though by no means beyond criticism (e.g. too much emphasis on Leadbetter's own swing theories), is at least (in sharp contrast to Andrisani) well-informed and perceptive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 29 Jun 2004
This book was a big disappointment. Very few pics, and overly elaborate explanations - there was no info on how to actually apply his technique - it was just "he did this" - "he did that".
In it's defense it does give an alternative perspective on his swing and includes the odd interesting quote from other coaches and players. I'm one of your big Hogan fans so I've still read it a couple of times (it's great for sending me to sleep)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice pictures, but nothing new, 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hogan Way: How to Apply Ben Hogan's Exceptional Swing and Shotmaking Genius to Your Own Game (Hardcover)
The book has nice pictures for illustration and it is a good read. However, if you are searching for something new, which is not covered in Hogan's books (Five Lessons and Power Golf), you will not be able to find it here. Worth having if you a Hogan fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough book, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hogan Way: How to Apply Ben Hogan's Exceptional Swing and Shotmaking Genius to Your Own Game (Hardcover)
The book was ok. I had to buy it from a completist point of view. I've got just about everything else written about Hogan. Quite a few inaccuracies in the book but a decent enough read without any startling new revelations
