Overview

This, without doubt, is one of the most powerful books on golf, golfing technique and golf history ever written. Published originally by 'Nash Publishers' and then later by 'Simon & Schuster', the book details the Count’s astounding accomplishments and simple way of playing consistent, long lasting, low scoring FUN GOLF!!! Though he is the most imitated golfer in history, it also outlines the Count's never ending battle to overcome the traditional thinking and established bureaucracy that, until recently, kept his profound and beneficial knowledge from the world of golf at large. It has been voted a few times over the years as the "Book of the Month"!

'Simon & Schuster' quoted that it was the best, most popular and successful, top selling golf book they had ever published, especially overseas, and still maintains its popularity in helping people dramatically improve their golf games to this very day!!!

There are still original hard copies out there and often appear on eBay and sell for over $300!
