More than. I was surprised by how much I learned reading it. We should be posting in the other thread though.

Yes please. If you've read the book and wish to share your honest thoughts, please use these two threads:

And here (the "product"):

 

 

This thread can still be used for basic stuff like "I got it!" and whatnot.

Is the membership a separate one from TST membership?

Mine had an estimated delivery date of Wednesday, but the tracking is now showing an update that it is out for delivery. Can't wait.

Yeah, they're almost all going to arrive before the estimates. Media Mail can be slower, but often is not as slow as they estimate.

 

The USPS does have the right to open media mail to make sure you're mailing "media" - books, etc. But I think only one person has reported an open package.

It says mine is out for delivery as well.  I guess I will be doing some reading tonight.

I got mine on Saturday, and am on page 100 so far. This is definately a great book! Love the descriptions and stats. I have so many questions yet I know that you guys don't want to get anything out there (regarding actual content) right now.

I would make one suggestion to you Erik as well as Dave. What I noticed with this book is that it is almost a supplement (in terms of the HOW with the swing and chipping/pitching) to the Evolvr lessons I'm recieving.

My suggestion to you two would be to add the descriptive information on the 5 keys into your Evolvr lessons. What I mean by that is that every lesson I've gotten in Evolvr is basically a page in your book. What is not explained is the actual HOW with Evolvr. Your book, however; actually explains that and HELPS a TON with what I'm learning in Evolvr.

The best explaination for that is with Stephan working with me on "loading and regaining flexion". His video explaining what he's trying to say only basically shows him going to the top of the backswing and essentially throwing his hands out and down in the down swing with the wrists still hinged. The problem is that it doesn't explain the FEEL or the HOW to get there. In your book you took about the emphasis on the left arm and it's importance on "pulling down" from the top of the back swing. THAT is a lights on moment! I took that to the course on Sat and Sunday and regained the 30 yards on my irons I had lost since working on Evolvr.

In addition to that; I've been trying to take my iron swing that I'm learning through Evolvr and move that to the driver which has made it erratic at best! You section on the setup with the driver and the HOW and WHY it's different and the setup needs to be changes has essentially fixed that problem.

WIthout reading your book and understanding those portions of what I'm working on I can honestly say that I was getting discouraged with the Evolvr lessons I was getting, and was close to calling it quits. Now, with the detailed descriptions and the WHYs and HOWs I can look to my lessons with a better understanding.

I would say that much like the how to and help videos that your teacher give with their analysis they should include the specific sections from your book that go further into those movements!

So far! You guys get an A++++ from me. This is a very thorough and well thought out book to say the least!

I'm not sure what you mean by that. I've watched your videos. We kept the 5SK stuff in the book VERY short, and generally described things, while your evolvr lessons are unique to you. We don't talk about "regaining flexion" (one of your lessons) in the book. That's a unique thing that you need to do because it affects your Key #4.

 

If you have other thoughts on evolvr, this may not really be the place for them. I'll share this link with Stephan, and possibly talk with him about it, but I do not necessarily agree that one or the other should be changed.

 

Also, this book is a lot more than 5 Simple Keys® stuff. Heck, that stuff is a few pages out of the 240 in the book (225 or so of actual content).

Dangit, I wanted to finished my Wheel Of Time book before this came.  It was suppose to be wednesday too, and now it says out for delivery... Lots of great reading ahead of me!!

post #444 of 621
I didn't mean to say that's all that's in there. It was only a section. It was a helpful section though.

I really like the stats portion and as I said I'm only on page 100. I've oly been through 100 pages and the book has already helped a ton. What other books can say that? That's a five star complement!
