The story provides a great lesson on living life according to God's plan, not our own.
Joseph Martin Jr.
I had borrowed the book from a friend, enjoyed it so much I bought one for my wife who wanted two more for her friends as Christmas gifts.
Bob
This book puts the game and life in perspective; thoroughly enjoyed reading it and plan on using the concepts to improve my golf game.

This is my all time favorite book about golf - and life! I have read this book numerous times, and have recently shared it with my two children ages 8 and 12 who are junior golfers. On the surface, Golf's Sacred Journey is a story of an aspiring golfer dealing with the insecurities, frustrations, and failures of trying to make it as a professional golfer. But the deeper message in the book is how we travel through life, and how we touch others is the true measure of success. You can tell the true character of a person more by how they deal with adversity, challenges and failures, than by their golf score.

Each chapter is a lesson about life, and Dr. Cook uses the metaphor of golf to clearly illustrate how our decisions and convictions have brought us to the place we now reside. Patience, humility, forgiveness, and love will help us all to have a rich and rewarding life, and will also help us with our golf games. Plan and visualize your life's journey, practice patience and balance, and hold on to truth and tradition and you will live your greatest dreams.

See it, feel it, trust it!

I don't give myself much time to sit and read books, even though I am currently reading three books and haven't finished any of them. When I received this one, I honestly couldn't put it down. Golf's Sacred Journey is so much more than a book of golf. It is a motivational book on life. I have taken some of the lessons that are mentioned in the book to my own personal life and has helped me deal with tough situations. It has also helped my game during the times that I used to get frusturated after a few bad shots, to get back up top and control my game (not someone else's).

I've loved reading from a very youg age. I'm now 60 years old. I have read comic books, text books, even read most of the World Book Encyclopedia one summer while I was in junior high. I have read junk and some of the classics. I have read self-help books and most of all, I have read much of the Bible, but I have never read a book that has made such an impact on my life as Golf's Sacred Journey. (And it even helped my golf game.)

One of the best books I have read in a long time. It not only covers the mental aspect of golf, it has a story line that many golfers have gone through. Then, it points you toward what truly is important in life. I thought enough of it that I bought 12 books to give to friends. I probably will buy more.

Being a struggling golfer, which caused me to be interested in this book I enjoyed it very much. The book deals with the emotional aspect of the game and nails the feelings one goes through. The author paints some wonderful pictures and I had a hard time putting this book down. The ending of the book was excellent.

Format: Paperback
I hope some day I get to meet Dr. Cook and shake his hand. I had started writing a mental-game for golf book with life-perspective undertones, but have now officially stopped. All I need to do is point people to this book. All I have to say is WOW! This is not only my favorite mental-game book about golf, it is my favorite sporting book period! I will not be surprised to hear if it ultimately sells 10 million or more copies. This book is simply priceless. Dr. Cook hits on all of the major sport psych. strategies in golf in the most fascinating and engaging way. For four days I didn't want to put it down, and didn't want the story to end when I finished it. For the record, I'm a "mental-game specialist" myself, and am simply amazed at this product. Aside from the Good Book, I've never been blown away by a story with as many life and skill lessons as this one. It may be the greatest sporting book ever written!

I have read a number of golf psychology books. This is by far the best. I would recommend it to my golfing buddies, but I don't want them to learn the lessons of this book. I need the income from our $2 bets.
