Great theory, but you have to work for the benefits,

This review is from: Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible (Hardcover)
First of all, no question that this book is close to THE short game bible. If (like me) you come from a technical background, you'll love this book - Pelz builds up his points in painful detail. However, only go for it if you honestly believe you can commit serious time (an absolute minimum of 3 hours a week) to short game practice. If, like most people, you can't, then go for Tom Watson's classic Getting Up And Down. Pelz is very technical indeed and unless (again, like me) you've just been laid off you won't have the time to put this into practice in the course of one season. No wonder the pros love it though. Oh, one more thing - some of his assumptions are understandably US-centric, so if you too play on a links course you can take some of his spin / stop predictions with a large, but windproofed, pinch of salt.
