4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on June 28 2004
Format: Paperback
This classic is an exceptional, readable, and all-encompassing study of the golf swing. I learned much about my swing studying this book. The only problem I encountered was none of the information was very relavant to me or the vast majority of golfers who suffer from a slice.
Ben Hogan had a strong hook and much of this book includes his corrections to overcome this deficit and straighten out his swing. However, for the slicer, these corrections do the opposite - my slice was worse than ever after following Hogan's advice and I couldn't correct it.
An excellent book, for starters or as a follow-on to Hogan's "Five Lessons", is Leadbetter's "The Fundamentals of Hogan". Leadbetter reviews the Hogan swing, then tells why it doesn't work for most (Hogan was double-jointed, Hogan was correcting his hook, etc.) and what you should really do. After Leadbetter, I did straighten out my swing.
Both books break the swing down into 5 parts: Grip, Stance, Backswing, Downswing, Summary.
While Hogan's book was groundbreaking and certainly deserves a read, if you want to learn a basic swing, Leadbetter's is far more encompassing and just as readable.

An excellent book that clearly articulates and simplifies the very basic fundamentals needed to play a respectful game of golf. In my case, I had been away from golf for more than ten years, and this book has helped me immensely toward re-establishing a proper grip, stance, and swing.

I have a small library of books about the golf swing. This is the best. Easy to read, easy to understand. As applicable today as it was when first written over 50 years ago.
