1 David DeNunzio (ed.). GOLF Magazine-The Best Driving Instruction Book Ever!
New York: Time Home Entertainment 2011 1603202110 / 9781603202114 Hardbound New (Includes Bonus DVD) New 26 x 1.9 x 25.4 cm 
Golf's mantra used to be pound it and then go find it. Today, the name of the game is pounding it even farther but with the precision normally associated with wedge shots and putts. Tour professionals raise the driving bar higher and higher every season with these long-ranging, fairway-finding missiles, but most amateurs fail to even sniff their true distance and accuracy potential. Until now. Featuring the most elite team of teachers in America, including a superstar set that's guiding the longest and most accurate drivers on all professional tours, GOLF Magazine's The Best Driving Instruction Book Ever! Provides everything recreational players need to add big-time yards to their tee shots with swing moves and positions anyone can master, plus a few new ticks that add eye-popping speed almost overnight. In it readers will learn how to tweak their gear to get the most yards out of their motions, mechanics for building power without swinging harder, and the end-all, be-all method for matching their driver swing to what their body can muster so they can finally realize their true distance potential and split the fairway every time. Lessons in GOLF Magazine's The Best Driving Instruction Book Ever! Are complemented by 400+ full-color photos that make each tip easy to comprehend, practice and put into play, as well as a DVD to see the lessons come to life. Like the rest of the Best Instruction series, Driving is also backed by years of experience with the award-winning instruction readers can only find in GOLF Magazine. With it any player can learn to muscle it past their buddies and bring long holes easily into range for more birdie opportunities.

Learning from the Links: Mastering Management Using Lessons From Golf, David K. Hurst.
2 David K. Hurst. Learning from the Links: Mastering Management Using Lessons From Golf
New York: The Free Press 2002 0684865017 / 9780684865010 Hardbound New New 16.1 x 2.7 x 24.3 cm 
A leading consultant, speaker and strategist examines the parallels between business and golf, and explains how the same learning techniques can dramatically improve your skills in both. For the first time, a business manager and consultant has formally drawn the metaphor that anyone who has ever hit the links knows: that business is like a game of golf. In golf, a player can't just hit and hope - he or she must think ahead continuously, contemplate multiple scenarios and consider the downside of every decision. Yet, as every player also knows, there is a huge, largely unacknowledged difference between knowing what to do in a given situation and knowing how to do it. Both on the green and in the office, it is this constant obstacle which keeps people from achieving their goals and solving their problems. By examining golfer's and managers' struggle for improvement, David Hurst shows us why complex systems are so hard to change, and how to set about changing them, systematically. Using the latest thinking from fields and anthropology, Hurst's primary purpose is to help his readers coordinate their own experience, to help them learn more effectively.

3 Dennis N.T. Perkins; Margaret P. Holtman; Paul R. Kessler & Catherine mcCarthy. Leading at The Edge: Leadership Lessons from the Extraordinary Saga of Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition
New York: AMACOM 2000 0814405436 / 9780814405437 Hardbound New New 3.8 x 16.5 x 24.1 cm 
"Part adventure story, part leadership guide, this intriguing book examines Shackleton's legendary Antarctic expedition through the lens of business - to reveal a set of powerful strategies for corporate leaders. In the chronicles of extraordinary adventures and against-the-odds survival, nothing compares to the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team of South Pole explorers. Stranded in the frozen sea for nearly two years, they endured extreme temperatures, hazardous ice, dwindling food, complete isolation, and perpetual blackness. Yet, despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the group remained cohesive, congenial, and mercifully alive - a fact that speaks not just to luck but to an unparalleled feat in leadership. Now, for the first time ever, "Leading at the Edge" draws on this amazing story to reveal the power of effective organizational leadership under conditions of uncertainty, ambiguity, and rapid change. The book uncovers 10 lessons - complete with stirring examples from the Shackleton expedition, as well as contemporary business case studies of the strategies in action - on what it takes to be a great leader. Readers learn how to: set a personal example with vivid symbols and behaviors; instill optimism while staying grounded in reality; reinforce the team message constantly; find something to celebrate and something to laugh about; and, have the courage to take big risks, and more. For managers and executives who feel stressed out or stretched thin, these memorable strategies will help bring order to chaos - and success in the face of the most daunting adversity".

Touch the Top of the World: A Blind Man's Journey to Climb Farther Than the Eye Can See, Erik Weihenmayer.
4 Erik Weihenmayer. Touch the Top of the World: A Blind Man's Journey to Climb Farther Than the Eye Can See
New York: Penguin Group 2001 0525945784 / 9780525945789 Hard bound New New 6.2 x 1.1 x 9.3 inches Author autographed.
The incredible, inspiring story of world-class climber Erik Weihenmayer, from the terrible diagnosis that foretold of the loss of his eyesight, to his dream to climb mountains, and finally his quest to reach each of the Seven Summits. Erik Weihenmayer was born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that would progressively unravel his retinas. Erik learned from doctors that he was destined to lose his sight by age thirteen. Yet from early on, he was determined to rise above this devastating disability and lead a fulfilling, exciting life. In Touch the Top of the World, Erik recalls his struggle to push past the limits placed on him by his visual impairment-and by a seeing world. He speaks movingly of the role his family played in his battle to break through the barriers of blindness: the mother who prayed for the miracle that would restore her son's sight; the father who encouraged him to strive for that unreachable mountaintop. Erik was the first blind man to summit McKinley. Soon he became the first blind person to scale the infamous 3000-foot rock wall of El Capitan and then Argentina's Aconcagua, the highest peak outside of Asia. He was married to his longtime sweetheart at 13,000 feet on the Shira Plateau on his way to Kilimanjaro's summit, and recently Erik scaled Polar Circus, the 30,000-foot vertical ice wall in Alberta, Canada. Erik's story is about having the vision to dream big; the courage to reach for near impossible goals; and the grit, determination, and ingenuity to transform our lives into "something miraculous."

Lance: The Making Of the World's Greatest Champion, John Wilcockson.
5 John Wilcockson. Lance: The Making Of the World's Greatest Champion
Philadelphia: Da Capo Press 2009 0306815877 / 9780306815874 1st Hard bound New New 9.1 x 5.9 x 1.4 inches 
No champion has astonished the world quite like Lance Armstrong. A cancer survivor who went on to win the Tour de France an unprecedented seven times, he is an inspiration to millions. Yet few know the complete story of this brash, smart, and fiercely competitive Texan who battled to the top of his sport, overcame the most rampant case of testicular cancer doctors had seen, and then conquered cycling's Holy Grail time after time. In Lance: The Making of the World's Greatest Champion, John Wilcockson draws on dozens of interviews with those who know him best to trace Armstrong's remarkable, yet controversial journey in vivid detail.Family members-including his adoptive father speaking publicly for the first time-recall Lance's humble origins in the backstreets of Dallas, the father he barely knew, his single mom's struggle for survival, and her second marriage that brought a move to the suburbs and new opportunities. His childhood friends and early mentors remember how he moved on from Little League baseball and football to excel at swimming, running, and triathlon, while living the life of a teenager who loved fast cars and pretty girls. They also describe the circumstances that eventually led to his taking up cycling.As Lance's fierce ambition drove him from the dusty plains of Texas to the snowy peaks of Europe, he was both admired and derided. He intimidated his rivals, earned the respect of his teammates, and astounded everyone with his extraordinary deeds. But his achievements have consistently been dogged by allegations of doping and secrecy, and questions of how triumph on such a grand scale could even be possible.So how did Lance become the supreme champion of his sport? He didn't do it alone. His compelling story is intertwined with the stories of those who helped shape his life and career, including his mother Linda, ex-wife Kristin, and one-time fiancée Sheryl Crow, along with those of his mentors, coaches, and friends. Their voices, along with those who helped him expand his cancer foundation into a worldwide movement, are integral to his unique story. Lance also reveals details, many for the first time, of how Armstrong's legendary training, near-fatal bout with cancer, repeated doping allegations, and hostile European media all pushed him to reach the pinnacle of his sport and rightly claim the title of the world's greatest champion.
