    Decent, but not as good as Nicklaus

    Some good pointers, but nothing original in this book. Tiger's name will sell it if anything, but golf isn't rocket science. It's all about practice, no matter what Tiger says.

    Okay, but not great.

    You sense that after reading this he spends as much time stroking his ego than getting down to instructional golf. Dont get me wrong...I think he is a joy to watch and there are some very good pointers that novice players will find interesting. <BR><BR>It's written in a simple-to-understand mode with plenty of photos and graphics to get most of the points that he is trying to make. But then he throws in some really odd items like: A sample series of photos for a golf magazine layout of his drive to show us that he swings so fast that the camera misses the crucial hit of the ball. Ummm, Tiger...we dont care. We'll never be able to swing that hard or fast, and nor should we even attempt it. (Just a sample of self-stroking.) There are another set of shots of him during 3 different periods in his career, all taking the same facing-the-camera-swing. He wants us to see the difference over the years. Know what, I couldnt see it. Why not point them out with a simple circle drawn over the changes so we can ALL see what you're talking about? Ok, so I get irked easily. <BR><BR>In fairness this is an excellent read if you want to know what goes on in Tiger's head while he is playing his game. A section on the psychology of golf competition was very good. There are some basics in here that everyone should be familiar with, but as an instructional book its not that good, and those under +18 should not buy it for that purpose.
