Decent BookAnvändarrecension - barrydalmi - Overstock.com
This is a good well written book. It is better for a relatively advanced player as it doesnt so much deal with strokesstrategy but more your own approach to the game. It takes a little selfexamination and soul searching to actually Use what you might pick up from the book. A good read. Läs hela recensionen
