A native of Saskatchewan, Scholz and his wife, Carla, co-pastor Chinook Chapel, a Congregational Christian church in Calgary, Alberta. They have two children, Anah and Reed. Cheryl L.

Format: Paperback
Comprehensive and pithy. The lessons are made with pertinent stories throughout to help things make sense. Over 100 interviews of the best in the sport from nine countries. They have talked to a number of curlers in both Canada and the US who carry this book in their curling bag to refer to when in doubt or to remind themselves of those little things that make such a huge difference on the ice. I have heard through the grapevine that almost every Olympic team since 2006 and till 2014 on the women's and men's sides use the book for reference. The book was on the Amazon.ca bestseller list for almost five years on Winter Sports and Sports Psychology.

Format: Paperback
I found this tough to read cover-to-cover so I read the first few chapters and now I've been skipping around.

There are some very useful tidbits here that I've discovered, but so far it either seems a bit beyond my level or too conceptual to be practical for improving my game.

I'm a fourth-year curler and I've participated in some club and regional competition, but at my level much of the team building advice is of limited use as I rarely curl with the same stable team.

I may have different teams for league nights and various spiels depending on format and need for travel.

That said, I will be trying to put some of these ideas into practice for the one team I'm skipping this year.

My wife is a Registered Dietitian, and she was rolling her eyes at some of the specific diet recommendations which seem unnecessarily extreme, (hope you like protein powder), which calls into question some of the other specific advice about stretching and exercise.

There are points where the advice is spot on, so the book isn't a complete waste of time, but in some sections the advice is not that helpful.

Instead of general tips like "hit the broom", "slide straight", etc. I guess I was hoping for something more.
