My Game and Yours is unlike any golf book. Palmer starts by saying that golf is essentially a simple game and that the only difficult thing about it is the way it's taught. So he teaches the reader four of five things his father taught him- and that's all. He shows how to practice these few things and thereby immeasurably improve your game.
