Do you find that when you're at the driving range or on the practice ground you're full of promise but once you translate this to the course all that promise drains away, leaving you stuck with the high handicappers? Do you know that you're better than this, but somehow you never seem to realise your potential? Yes? Then you need this book – and the probability is that you don't just need it on the golf course, but in 'real' life too. Maybe you're a more proficient golfer than that? You do quite well on the course? Then this book will show you how you can improve even more.

Before we go any further let's get something straight – this book is about the mental side of the game. If you're looking for advice on how to improve your swing, or master those tricky little puts there are other books which will give you that advice, but you still need this book. It's all too easy to forget that you might be playing in the monthly competition, but your real opponent is your own mental state. Does that sound a little tame? OK – this is the best book about mastering the game of golf that I've ever read – and I've read more than a few.

I'm not going to try and describe Dr Stephen Simpson's techniques – he does it so much better than me and it's him you should be reading. Don't be put off by the journey he describes through philosophy, psychology, Zen and a host of other subjects – it's all relevant to the game of golf that you play on a day by day basis. You'll learn to play to your abilities – and even surpass your own expectations.

You'll learn how to work on the mental side of the game, but more importantly, the positive attitude you'll develop will mean that you'll enjoy your rounds more. I've often wondered why we golfers continue to play when the game causes us so much mental anguish, but this book will mean that you feel better about yourself and your game. It's all sound advice, backed by examples from the golfers you've long admired. You'll discover what being 'in the zone' means – and I have to confess it was a complete mystery to me until I read this book, but it will be as relevant to your game as it is to a professional golfer.

Every golfer, whatever their ability, will benefit from reading this book but it will be of particular benefit to those who are struggling with their game and who don't seem to be making any progress despite the hours spent at the driving range or reading instruction manuals. I'd like to thank the publishers for sending a copy to the Bookbag.
