Flag as Inappropriate. Barrett was born into a farming family in Essex. He is remembered as an actor of handsome appearance (despite his small stature) and with a powerful voice.

He made his first appearance on the stage at Halifax in 1864, and then played in the provinces alone and with his wife, Caroline Heath, in East Lynne.

Such a journey is worth the undertak. Our approach in this book is to follow Christ as He uses and opens the Scriptures. Such a journey is worth the undertaking for every Christian. Jesus laid down specific principles of interpretation, basic to any proper interpretation of the Bible. Secondly, when any interpreter over the centuries-as well as today-has ignored or been unaware of the principles of interpretation which Christ Himself laid down, their own interpretations may often have become erroneous and even absurd.

Today millions play golf worldwide, and only one in every forty thousand golfers is good enough to play at the professional level. Millions of golfers hit thousands of shots every year and not one is struck correctly. This is due, according to the legendary Ben Hogan, "not so much to lack of ability as lack of knowing exactly what it is that he must do."

Understanding the essential elements of the swing is where the average golfer parts company with the better player. How so many can play for so long devoid of all knowledge of the correct path of the clubhead to the ball really is a mystery. Such a Little Secret supplies the knowledge that will open the gate to millions.

I was surprised. "A little secret" was not found by the author. He just quoted Henry Longhurst's comment on BBC. The secret is similar to Harvey Penick's. And no other secrets in this book at all.

2/3 of this book is filled with golf's popular explanations of fundamentals. I can write them. So can you. Why do you need this book?

There are some real gems here in this small work, which unless one has been pounding the dirt for the answers won't even realize the wisdom that is being offered here.

Primarily it is about four essentials to a repetitive swing, one you can trust. It starts with quiet head, then weight transfer with right loci of hands, and ends in clubhead at right knee level.

While this appears to some to be brain surgery, the golfer who will just take the time to start with proper setup and adequate shoulder turn(there is neat drill at home w/o club to achieve this), the four essentials can be drilled into a player.

This is phenomenal stuff which yields repeatable grooved swing with a little persistent effort. What this reviewer finds intriguing and right on is the lattitude Barrett provides in certain checkpoints, given one's flexibility, body structure, etc. But the four essentials still are essential. One can improve significantly just by the quiet head. Worst suggestion all golfers know which most hackers and their friends suggest: keep the head down.

This little book in pages but large in gifts will bless all handicap golfers who want a groove and with patience, intensity and persistance, give its essentials a chance.

For years I've been developing a solid swing based on solid fundamentals. It has always looked good and has been envied by young and old alike, mostly for the power it can generate. I've worked hard at making it look effortless and professional. When it came down to it, though, I found that my swing couldn't keep the ball in play consistently. I kept throwing away drives, and I have come to expect at least one train wreck hole per 9. I've been stuck at a mid-teen handicap for a while now. I knew I was missing 1 key ingredient that prevented me from hitting all the fairways and greens I want to hit. I found my final key in this book. It's an unnecessarily verbose book, but all one needs to know about hitting a golf ball only fills up 1 page. If you have a single digit handicap, then don't bother reading this book, as you won't find anything useful here. If you feel that one little something is missing from your swing, you may find it here. If you play worse than bogey golf, then this book is invaluable and should be required reading.

It is worthwhile to note that what the author describes is nothing new. He simply stresses that which goes unstressed or unsaid in many other reference materials. He gives full credit where credit is due and very carefully and diligently cites his references.

Most of us have way too much stuff running around in our head from reading lots of books, articles, the golf channel, et. al. What we need are the absolute basic underlying fundamentals, the fewer the better. This gives us that but many won't appreciate it because to the well read there appears to be nothing new--but their is. He adds the emphasis and doesn't dilute the lesson with hundreds of other instructions. That's what good coachs do, repeat the fundamentals over and over. Since you have heard it, you think you know it but you don't have a clue. Practice these fundamentals for a month and forget about all the other stuff you think you know. For me this is close to impossible, but I will try. I just wish he could have boiled it down to one fundamental!

In my opinion he is too modest by saying the book is not for single digit handicappers. How many of them (and pros)have you seen violating these very fundamentals?

One other thought, the golf instruction industry is about "new" things and new termonology in order to sell stuff, and whether we acutally know more than what is included in Ben Hogan's works is very suspect to me.

I have lots of golf books and I've read lots from the library. Most books have something to offer. Whether it's some insight or different way of explaining technique that makes sense or or occasionally something entirely new. This really isn't one of those.

The first thing that struck me about this book was the writing style is reminiscent of books written 50-60 years ago. That's no surprise considering his primary heros of golf are Armour, Jones, and Hogan. While all three were great players I believe our understanding of what happens in the swing has changed tremendously and some of the old beliefs just haven't held up to scientific examination. That doesn't mean these guys have no value it's just that one would be missing out on a lot if you only studied the old information. The crux of Mr. Barrett's ideas are fairly sound, but his explanations are so stilted in old-timey presentation as to be painful to read. His big issue is that the "right ear hole" shouldn't move at all during the swing. He goes on to explain how it's OK to move the left ear but not the right. Well, I'm no biologist but that's flat out physically impossible. Ears are in geometric terms objects passing through an axis affixed to a rough sphere. You cannot move one without moving the other. I'm sorry but when I read that it colored practically everything I read afterward with the glow of BS. Another fixation of his is locus or path of the swing. He says things like (paraphrase) "the golfer should endeavour to put the club on the correct locus". Who can argue with that? At the same time he is very light in the "how to" department. If golf were just about "do this, do that" I think we all would have had it licked a long time ago. I think this guy is doing the right thing in limiting the number of issues he raises and that's always helpful. It seems like Mr. Barrett is probably a nice old English pro and I hope he can make some money off this book and have a nice life. If you really want to improve there are dozens of books more worthy of the money and the time.
