Some of the chapters are a few sentences. It was as if he wrote the chapter title and the topic and decided he didn't need to thresh it out at all. I read the entire book literally in a few minutes. When you buy a book for $7-8 dollars, you do expect something more.
So, I'm feeling guilty now, because he is such a great writer, but this is not worthy of his talent and I cannot recommend it. Someone who wasn't a professional writer but can string sentences together could have written it. It was not - his authentic swing. I hope he can forgive me for saying so.
Emboldening, THE AUTHENTIC SWING looks at the mystical and the metaphysical as well as the mechanics of writing a novel. It is as much what you believe, as how you structure your writing days, the kinds of stories to tell -- and even, yes, the mechanics of how THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE was formed. Classic mythology provided a chassis, and for the Hollywood screenwriter, the notion of how motion pictures worked provided underpinnings on a subconscious level.
What emerges is the place of faith in the creative process; doing the impossible dream incrementally; thinking you've lost your mind; staying with it. And Pressfield isn't a 24-year starting out when he embarks on a novel based or inspired loosely by Michael Muprhy's seminal GOLF IN THE KINGDOM, a novel that merges Eastern thought and a magical round of golf in the Old Country of Scotland.
To be inspired, to be shown how, that's what THE AUTHENTIC SWING is all about.
