Here are a few excerpts: WOW! A lot has changed in the past 20 years. When I first published this book in February, 1991, I didn’t have a web address or a cell phone. Home computers were just starting to gain popularity and I hadn’t quite turned 30 yet. ... Surprisingly, one thing that hasn’t changed are the 10 Secrets for Golfing Success. They are still just as valid today as they were when I originally wrote about them 20 years ago. ... I Found the Golf God, 10 Secrets for Golfing Success was the first book I ever wrote, so it will always be very special to me. Based on the letters and comments I’ve received through the years, it’s been a special book to dozens of other people, as well – both golfers and non-golfers alike. I’ve received letters from golf professionals giving the book credit for their first big tournament wins. I’ve received phone calls from men and women in all walks of life telling stories of how the book changed their lives (not just their golf games). I’ve even had several non-golfers get “mad” that it was a golf book and not a life improvement book, saying they almost hadn’t read it because of that. One of the most magical moments for me was receiving a handwritten note from tennis legend, Martina Navratilova, stating how the concept of “target golf” had helped her golf game. Another was when international self-help author and success coach, Anthony Robbins, happened to come into a bookstore where I was doing a book signing, and asked me to autograph a copy of I Found the Golf God to his friend, Ken Blanchard (author of The One Minute Manager), as a birthday gift. ... I Found the Golf God sold nearly 10,000 copies in its first year, going to print three times in the first nine months. It’s been used as a sales training tool, as a textbook for golf colleges, as a tournament gift bag item, and more. GOLFERS AND NON-GOLFERS ALIKE LOVE I Found the Golf God! With years and years of rave reviews from men and women golfers of all levels, this timeless golf and life improvement book is sure to help you improve your golf swing and your game!
