For as long as golfers and golf instructors have been in the game, they've been searching for better ways to understand the swing. Until now, they've always had to rely on the RESULT of a swing-seeing positions or movement live or in pictures or video, or data on TrackMan. Not anymore. In the Elements of the Swing, Michael Jacobs introduces the first swing analysis that looks at what CAUSES the club to move. Based on a seven-year research project with preeminent golf scientist Dr. Steven Nesbit, Elements of the Swing uses analysis from Jacobs and Nesbit's cutting-edge new software to show for the first time WHY a club moves the way it does, not just HOW. Elements of the Swing is the first book to explain the basic physics of the club's movement in a way that any player or teacher can both understand and immediately use. You'll learn about the factors that give each swing its unique fingerprint, and how to change your swing in ways that lead to improved performance-not just improved positions, aesthetics or numbers on a TrackMan screen. It will become one of the game's standard teaching texts.

Authentic Tennis uses a holistic feel based approach to tennis. This Authentic approach makes the feel of the swing primary, while the mechanical method tends to make body mechanics primary. The mechanical method to the tennis swing emphasizes the form of the swing over the feel of the swing. "Feel" is something that cannot be seen. Each person's "feel" is completely unique and personal and the mechanical method does not recognize its immeasurable value. For Authentic Tennis, "feel" is its cornerstone and serves as the foundation of swing mastery. "Feel" is an individual process that makes it un-teachable through a mechanical system which separates the mind from the body. However, through mindfulness and awareness centered consciousness, "feel" becomes an integrating process that allows for natural mind/body. Authentic Tennis was written to help the millions of coaches, instructors, and tennis players unlock their unlimited potential and to tap into one's natural state of learning. No matter what your skill level, this revolutionary approach to tennis is perfect for anyone who strives to reach their personal best on and off the court.
