From the Publisher
A senior writer for Golf Digest described ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game as "Soothing and enlightening, entertaining and provocative; here is a book that is highly original, exciting, and deserves notice."
In May 2002, ZEN GOLF was released in hardcover. By December it went to its fifth printing, charted as the current bestselling instructional golf book in America.
In response to many requests for an audio version (especially for listening to while driving to the golf course), the audiobook has been produced as an unabridged edition, a 4 CD set in an attractive jewel case, read by the author, PGA TOUR Instructor Dr. Joseph Parent. It conveys through the author's own expressions the wisdom so many golfers of all levels have found in ZEN GOLF.
Fred Shoemaker, author of Extraordinary Golf, wrote, "Dr. Parent has beautifully melded the timeless wisdom of Buddhism with his timely insights as a golf coach. Here is a roadmap to inner confidence, self-awareness and the feel of a purely struck golf shot. We are approaching a turning point in the way golf or anything else is learned. This approach to learning and life is a wonderfuland perhaps our most powerfulhope for the future." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am able to enjoy the good shots and to let go and learn from the "not so good" ones. My wife and I played a scramble last week and shot a great combined score (for us). I'm looking forward to seeing what else "Zen Golf" can teach me.
i realize my review went a little beyond the reading of the book however, the author is available to the average golfer which is something unusual in this game the pros make look so simple and a game we love to hate. please read the book and discover why standing up to the ball and hitting it anyway makes no sense.
