How far do you want to hit the ball? If you're like everybody else, your answer is "just a little farther." Then "More Golf Swing Speed" is the Quick Guide for you. It focuses on the downswing-how you load the shaft at the top of your backswing and unload it at impact. It helps you understand both how to make the correct moves and how to avoid the incorrect ones: ** "Hold" or even increase your wrist cock during the downswing ** Avoid casting from the top ** Develop maximum clubhead speed as you near impact ** Learn how Hogan's supinated wrist position works ** Create a downward strike on the ball that prevents flipping ** And more! There are no secret tricks to creating clubhead speed, and you don't need expensive training aids to create solid strikes on the ball. All you need is a clear understanding of what your club does during your downswing and how you can cooperate with it to get the most clubhead speed possible. All you need is "More Golf Swing Speed."

Blythe Harlan is a typical American high school student. She hangs out at the mall with her best friend, worries about boys, school, friends, and social engagements, and has the rest of her life in front of her, ready for the taking. At least, that's how her life used to be. During the spring of her junior year, Blythe receives a crippling diagnosis: she has cancer. Staring down the barrel of a senior year littered with chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she must wrestle with the realization that she may not even be alive to see the end of high school. While her friends will be picking prom dresses and planning for graduation, Blythe will be struggling to survive as her body is ravaged from the inside out. Medical bills begin to accumulate and her parents have to work more to keep their family afloat, leaving her in the care of her aunt. As if being diagnosed with a life threatening illness wasn't enough, Blythe is faced with the sudden and tragic death of someone near and dear to her and the traumatic aftermath it leaves for her family. As her world falls apart, she finds herself helpless to overcome the obstacles and falls into depression. She contemplates taking her own life, believing that her death will make things better for her family. Only through the love and support of her brother, best friend, aunt, and the sadistically cheery oncology nurse does she have any hope of a future.
