Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.
Fine. Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE------------------THE GOLFING MACHINE by Homer Kelley Words cannot express what this book has done for golf. Kelley's work is a masterpiece. Golf instruction tends to be theory and opinion. There is absolutely no theory or opinion in the book. It is completely fact; it will remain that way as long as the basic laws of physics and geometry hold true. Just as there are thousands of philosophies and religons but only one science, there are also thousands of different golf books but only one Golfing Machine. It is because so much information is reduced to a 200 page handbook. It is basically golf swing engineering. All golf strokes have been divided into 24 components, three zones, 12 sections and three functions. People who can appreciate the genius of Homer Kelley are the ones who have unlocked the information held within this book. This book describes how (and why) every aspect of the golf swing works. The book holds what is probably the most accurate information on the golf swing available. The readers of this book can be confident that what they are reading/learning is correct, and not just based on someone's opinion, but rather, years of research into the physics/geometry behind the golf swing. There are other books that have taken this "scientific" approach to teaching the golf swing, but this is the only book of it's kind. PGA players (one of whom has won a major) would carry this book around like a bible. Definitely a book worth reading if you are a true golf-nut. PLUS----there are L-O-A-D-S of photos! !
