August 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Better Golf from New Research, provides a wealth of new information on topics useful to golfers as they play. Unlike conventional instruction books, the authors provide an explanation of basic ways to play better golf with your current swing. By providing clear guidance about the effects of different environmental conditions, such as wind effect, leeway of various turf conditions and ball position in the stance, the authors enable golfers to make better on-course decisions. In most cases, the advice is customized for each golfer’s swing and handicap. Also included is a chapter on the “FF aiming process”, a distinctly different approach to avoiding slices and hooks that modifies current teaching methods. This new approach also offers golfers the chance to generate a fade or draw, producing more...

Review
“The lessons in Zen Golf make the mental game seem so simple. Dr. Parent has given me very effective methods for working with thoughts and emotions, and for taking the negatives out of the picture.”

Tiger Virtues: 18 Proven Strategies for Winning in Golf and in Life
Alex Tresniowski
0762423382
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For Tresniowski, 29-year-old superathlete Tiger Woods embodies a set of virtues-18, to be exact-that have helped him win on the golf course and that can be applied to anyone's life, on and off the green. The People magazine sportswriter admits he has not spoken to Woods about these virtues and can't say Woods necessarily believes in them or endorses them. Yet that doesn't stop Tresniowski from offering a crash course in Buddhism lite, anchored by anecdotes from Woods's playing career. In falsely erudite prose, Tresniowski explains the virtues: wakefulness, humility, preparation, positive thinking, stillness, fearlessness, "happy warrior," intuition, diligence, integrity, no expectations, yielding spirit, sureness, vision, adaptability, patience, balance and exuberance. Although these virtues are certainly...

Geno: In Pursuit of Perfection
Geno Auriemma
0446577642
January 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
If nothing else, Auriemma, coach of the UConn women's basketball team since 1985, explains how little girls in Connecticut inherited the dreams of little boys in Indiana. The rise of a program with a leaky gym and roll-away bleachers to become a powerhouse with five national championships is a Hoosier-like tale. But Auriemma's book is merely the bones of the story, a slapdash chronicle of seasons. In his talky style, he is unable to flesh out the characters, and his anecdotes are stiff. One exception is his depiction of star Diana Taurasi cracking during a challenging season: "sitting on a bench, swaying back and forth and banging her elbows against the wall.... She is in withdrawal, like some kind of drug addict." On Auriemma's team, breakdowns are a good sign because they mean hunger. He prods individuals by...
