Some good information is presented but the book is not very well organized. The writing is very marginal and the book does not flow in any sense of the word. You can gain a couple of nuggets reading I would not recommend it for anyone that doesn't already know a lot about the golf swing or they will get extremely confused.
There is almost nothing in this book that relates to the way Mr. Hogan played golf. The methods described in Mr. Hogan's own book aren't faithfully presented in this sham. Moreover, it's difficult to understand the relevance of most of the anectdotes included by Mr. Hunt and the photos of people trying to emulate the Hogan swing are laughable.
In the past 6 or so years I have been eating and sleeping trying to improve my golf game. I have bought and read just about all there is out there to read on how to improve your game. Ted Hunt's book is a must have for the golfing enthusiasts library. If youre looking for clear cut discription on how to better your game this book will do it. Do as the author suggests, and bottom line this book will help you improve your game. From the putter to driver there are certain fundamentals that are required to hit w/ power and accuracy the author shows you in simple fashion how you can learn it for yourself. Its a clear and simple description of probably golfs most complex seemingly mysterious moves. It validates and simplifies much of Homer Kelley's teachings in the Golfing Machine in my opinion. Apply these principles and it will open your eyes to a golf game you thought you may never find. Is it Hogan's Secret? Most likely noboby will ever know for sure. Could it be his secret...
