Pros: in-depth, well written

Cons: poorly described examples

I managed to get a used copy of this and skimmed through it for about an hour.  I was left with a favorable impression at that point.

 

When I went through it again more in-depth, I tried to follow the examples of how to determine your own LAW, and was unimpressed.  The language and instructions were at times easy to follow, but some examples were too vague or ambiguous and I couldn't understand what the authors intended.  There are many references that also say 'go with you gut feeling', or 'use natural common sense'.

 

I came away thinking I was a mixed leveraged and width player, but per the book could not say or certain.  

 

After you determine your type, you should then reread the section(s) that pertain to you.  I did and feel I learned something.

 

Bottom Line: It is an informative read, but until a newer edition comes out to correct the portions where you determine your LAW, I'd hold off on buying.

The LAWs of the Golf Swing: Body-Type Your Golf Swing and Master Your Game
Description:

"Swing doctor" Mike Adams and two the top golf instructors present a revolutionary teaching model that shows players how they can match their swings to their body type to dramatically improve their game. Are you a Leverage, Arc , or Width Player? The authors of The Laws of the Golf Swing provide five straightforward tests' accompanied by step-by-step photos' that golfers can use to identify their own body type. Everyone falls into one of the three basic types: Leverage players, such as Jim Colbert, Nick Price, and Annika Sorenstam, have average build and flexibility; Arc players, such as Tiger Woods, David Love III, and Michelle McGann, are long-limbed and have extra flexibility; and Width players, such as Arnold Palmer, Craig Stadler, and Meg Mallon are less flexible but have more upper body strength. A person's golf swing is highly dependent of physique, personal strengths, and natural tendencies. By taking these five simple tests, readers can identify their own body type, discover their true swing, and then perfect it.
