Regardless of skill level, Jacob's instruction can reach and benefit every golfer. His teachings emanate from his view that the flight of the ball tells what you're doing and what might need to be done to correct any problem(s). The book covers all facets of the game and differentiates between classes of golfers which really helps personalize the instruction. It's a fantastic book.
This is a great instructional book. I bought a copy several years ago and it has nice paper weight pages with color illustrations. I recently bought another copy for my son who is learning to golf. I was disappointed when I received this copy. The pages are tissue thin, and the illustrations are not in color. The paper is so thin that the text and pictures from the flip side of the page shows through on the front side. The publisher went cheap.
