You have probably heard that 90% of golf is in the mind. Tracy explains not only why this is, but how to get control of your mind so that you can be your best not only on the course, but in my opinion also in life. This book focuses on that essential and probably most important aspect of the game, and like his previous lessons, gives you specific tools in order to accomplish it. He doesn't just tell you what you should do, but gives you the tools to actually do it.
For me, what makes this such a good read is that you begin to realize that Tracy has been on his own journey of discovery. He has tuned his instructions relative to the results he has seen in his students and has made the necessary corrections so that you get the product of his years of knowledge, study, and empirical evidence of the truth.
I highly recommend this book for those who have been struggling to get control of the mind-game of golf. If you are just beginning your studies, you should also read this book and try your best to take it to heart and believe it. My feeling is that you won't believe it until you've struggled for a few years and are ready to understand the profound truth that it presented here. I wish that I had read this book twenty years ago. I don't know if I would have believed it then and saved myself twenty years of anguish, but like other aspects of life, if I knew then what I know now, I may have done things differently.
Update June 2, 2016
So, I've had some time now to play while using the ideas in this book. I can honestly say that I'm able to find that "zone" much more often and have been steadily lowering my scores as I get better at it. It does take some practice. Additionally, it does appear to me that the "zone" only lasts about 5 seconds, which is all you really need when you're standing over the ball. But the really nice and important part of it is that I'm able to find that zone in situations where there is pressure on a shot and if there are distractions on the course that would normally affect me. Basically, the message I want to make on this update is that the concepts in this book are not just concepts or some thought experiment, but are instead real and functional techniques that work.
