These books are designed to be carried by rules officials on the course. This one will not stand up to being crammed into a waterproof coat pocket like its predecessor. The contents are probably fine as usual but this won't help if the book becomes unusable. I'm just waiting to see if there is another version so I can return this one to Amazon. I probably should anyway as the price has dropped on the day I received it by £1.99!
The biggest issue with this order was that we discovered about 30 pages were missing - hence my point above about them falling out. As the book is quite thick I didn't notice this when the order arrived and it wasn't until my husband was reading it that we realised there was a problem. I recommend that if you buy it, you check that all the pages are present as soon as it arrives or you could have problems with returning it should you not notice until later.
Having said that, the return service with Amazon was excellent - a new book (complete this time) was received the next date and we were sent a prepaid postage label to return the faulty book.
Only 3 stars due to it being faulty and we don't like the ring binder.
A must for all golfers. Despite what you think there is always something that happens when playing that you cannot find in the rules of golf.
That said it's a pre-requisite for anyone involved in golf from the casual hacker who wants to make sure they're playing by the rules to the die hard who just occasionally comes across an unusual situation and wonders just how they should proceed.
It also provides some scenarios that make you wonder whether they really have happened or whether they've been made up - just in case!

An interesting guide to the more bizarre situations that can arise during a game of golf.Published 15 months ago by JMG
You need to look carefully as this is the 2012-2013 version. The latest version is 2014-2015.
Amazon will exchange but it will cost you the postage.
