Puett and Apfelbaum make golf's secrets a bit more accessible to the average player by providing a handy reference book for reviewing the basics of all shots and explaining away some of the mysteries. Straightforward information, broken down into understandable components and accompanied by good drawings and some helpful swing thoughts, offers a frustrated golfer the chance to review the "rights" of the swing before s/he becomes too frustrated. Too comprehensive and detailed to be read as a text, it's the perfect book to use as a refresher, to pick up and put down as the need arises, and I've never failed to find some helpful reminder here which makes a difference after a less than wonderful round.
Barbara Puett's only teacher was the legendary Harvey Penick, so positive in his approach that she "never knew [she] ever did anything wrong in the golf swing." By accentuating the positive and reinforcing the fundamentals, she aims to continue his legacy and is largely successful in this book. The one thing that this positive philosophy does not address, however, is the fact that golf is a mental game, too, and not all of us are gifted with this inherently upbeat outlook. A chapter on how to deal with the emotional funk which sometimes accompanies a day spent hitting worm balls out of the weeds would also be welcome. Mary Whipple

While the story may not be that different from any other book, the characters pull you in.
Charlie who grows up in a small town admiring families that had more than he did. He goes looking for the care free beauty Polly Chambers and finds Lucy the older sister.
He marries Lucy and finds out that marrying into a prominent family may not be all that it is cracked up to be. A mother in law that is the master of manipulation and is training her daughter to be her protégée. Charlie's father in law is beaten down by a business that he never wanted to run and a wife that is more the brains behind the operation that anyone will admit. Polly who helps her family earn the title of dysfunctional.
After Lucy and her mother orchestrate Charlie going to work at the business, he starts to find out who he is and what he is made of. Temptation comes his way from a sassy neighbor and he learns that he has to put his foot down or he too could become the mouse of a man his father in law has become. When he finally lays the law down for his wife Lucy, it makes you want to stand up and cheer.
It's an interesting book to read. A quick read with a delightful ending.

Some people will find it weird the way the main characters behave, they don't seem to be human, they kill a guy in an instant (just because this guy tried to seduce you in a silly way), but surprise...they aren't Humans, they are werewolves...worst, they are from the tribe of the black furies, and they don't take [junk] from anyone, especially a male ape.
Now technically speaking, the choice of not collouring this comic was very intelligent, it's scarier this way; the drawing is very strong and competent as is the story.
