I was talking about the pages and pages of ads these internet offers use to try and sell you their goodies...."but if you buy today,then i will also send you my ^@#$%^&* book, a $59.95 value for free, and that's not all..listen to what these people are saying about my system..."
But the book is less than 100 pages if you take out the the glossary, the Ferris State interview, what the pros are saying and the appendix of pics of all the drills. It can easily be read in one sitting, at least by most of us. But the genius isn't in the reading, it's in the doing Roscoe.
Try an exercise in education sometime. Go to a large bookstore's golf section. Randomly select 10 books on golf instruction. Then browse the instruction parts where they describe how to swing, what comprises a good swing , etc. Most will do a god job with this. But then, look for the section where they tell you how to acquire this, or build that into the swing. Most don't. If they do they don't provide a precise, progressive, intense program of acquisition, just some "drills". Most dont even go that far. LOL a lot of drills have Bertholy's originals as their foundation.
Forget Bertholy for a moment and ask yourself how you learned to do any physical task, one that you can do now without thinking. How did you learn it? You started slow, making sure you got it right slow. You learned in pieces, again striving for correctness until that piece was learned. Then you added more speed and began blending the individual pieces together, until eventually you had it down beginning to end and could do the task at full speed. When a dancer wants to learn a new move, they don't just go out and do it, they choreograph all the individual steps and moves in slow motion first, learning sections at a time, gradually adding speed until they are at speed.
That is what Bertholy is all about...the absolute essential parts of the swing, and how to acquire them.
