    NOT A BOOK LIKE IT! A+

    Jim McLean does it again... this could be the best value of any golf instruction. The depth of information is remarkable (but not surprising coming from one of the top instructors in the world). The slot swing is about understanding why and how the golf club travels specifically on the downswing. It's practical, informative, intelligent and comprehensive. ... I found it so useful that I purchased 4 more for my students.
