I decide that this past summer was going to be the summer to improve my golf game, and I did. I also picked up 3 Off the Tee because golf was on my mind and this book uses the game of golf to teach lessons around the topic of success. The book is exceptionally well written and easy to read, comprehend and apply to real life. There is insightful guidance in all 18 chapters (relates to 18 holes of golf) but I really liked the 4th chapter- Focus on making decisions, expert advice on just getting it done. Author Lorri Myers, well done.

When I first picked up Lorii Myers' 3 Off the Tee: Make It Happen, a Healthy, Competitive Approach to Achieving Personal Success, one thing interested me. It was the personal success part. There has only been one time in my life when I went out on a golf course to play. I hit two, or maybe three balls, and I was finished. Golf just was not of any interest to me. Maybe I was influenced by my father's attitude that golf is silly because it is only hitting the ball and walking to where you hit it, then hitting it again.

The fact is that Lorii brings meaning to the game. Furthermore, she creates endless analogies between being successful at golf and being successful in life. She obviously knows both games well. It becomes very obvious as one reads through the 18 chapters that she has both acts together.

Endless books about self improvement have been written. This is among the best. I still am not ready to hit the golf course again. I am approaching 70, and that's a game that I'll probably never take up at this stage of life. But Lorii's book has given me a degree of respect for the game that I didn't have before. Lorii, you accomplished a minor miracle!

The self improvement aspects of the book are endless. This is not just one of those books to read one time and then place on the shelf, never to touch again. I would advise everyone who reads it to have a pencil with them. Don't be afraid to mark up the pages. There's a tremendous amount of material in there that you are going to want to revisit time and again for further focus.

When I read a book and come away feeling that I have gained something useful, I know it is something well worth the price. It is no exaggeration to say that in the genre of Ms. Myers' expertise, she ranks right at the top tier with such people as Napoleon Hill and Dale Carnegie.

If you like golf then you will probably like the analogies in this book. Lorii Myers teaches readers how to play the corporate game so they can thrive in the business world. The first thing she talks about is having good self-esteem. She then wisely explains how to deal with people who are unkind. Basically she says that what goes around comes around so not to pay these people that much attention. Then she dives into goals and how to achieve them. She teaches the reader how to be empowered and explains how to build a power team. Anyone in business can be more successful by reading this book. There is also a list of what makes someone successful that will be helpful to all readers.

Very insightful and definitely a good read. I'm not usually a fan of how-to-be-a-success books but this one made me think and entertained me as well. Golfers will see the simple metaphors here but life includes non-golfers too! They should give it a shot.
