Book Description

16 May 2013
With thousands of copies sold already this is an ideal download for days when the course is closed. It is also a great paperback and even an ideal little present for the golfer in your life. A book for golfers and those who know a golfer. Golf Speak discusses some of the common phrases and cliches that golfers say every day and then pokes a bit of fun at the real meaning or what a quick witted playing partner could say in reply! It is a funny look at 'Golf Speak' exposing the ancient and modern language, while reinforcing the need to maintain etiquette and decorum. A book packed with phrases said every day on golf courses all over the world after tee shots, shots from the fairway, recovery shots and on or around the green. A highly entertaining book filled with excuses and commentary said by golfers to explain why their golf shot went wrong. All new 'Revised Edition' which addressed the debate over apostrophe inclusion or omission that erupted on Amazon US. No matter because the intention of the book was always a bit of fun, not an entry for novel of the decade! Warning, the spelling is English UK not US so no 'spell check one star reviews' please; Oh and the humour is very British and in turn sarcastic!

More About the Author

Chris Gibson only started writing seriously a few short years ago after being encouraged to pen his first book to compliment research for his doctoral programme on global economics and franchising. This first book was the start and he soon discovered a new found passion for writing, developing an informative style by using examples and psychological analysis to present the subject matter. As a bit of respite from the business guides, he wrote a short satirical book on relationships between couples, Fifty Shades of Nagging in 2012 and after seeing demand for this type of book started working on a longer and more in depth follow up 'Life of Pie - Nag Pie' published in May 2013. A third satirical book on 'Golf Speak" is also available in paperback and kindle.

All books written by Chris Gibson use his experiences from life, study and work, and attempt to analyse the rationale people use to explain the reasons for actions and decisions.

Chris has operated at C-Level for companies in the UK and US. He started working in banking in the 1980's before starting his first business in the entertainment industry during the 1990's; the particular skills developed during these formative years certainly helped in his corporate career and at 36 he was appointed CEO of a multimillion pound international company.

Product Description

About the Author

Chris Gibson is an author of a number of satirical books, and after playing the game and speaking fluent 'golf speak' himself for over 35 years the temptation to write a book was too great to resist. Aside from still trying to get better at the game, and failing miserably, he has taken solace in the social side and the banter that goes 'golf glove in hand' and provides humour with the silly things that seem to keep coming out of his mouth! Away from golf he continues to work as a franchise consultant and author of semi serious business books too.

For Golfer to have a little giggle at some of the dumb things they say. Great Stocking Filler. Value for money.

This was a small Birthday present for a friend and he seemed very pleased to receive it. He only had it yesterday so has not had a chance to read very much of it yet.

This book is full of little stories and insights which most club golfers will recognise from their own fellow members.

The laughs soon follow as the secret world of golf speak is explained to all.

Heartedly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book 28 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as a Father's Day present and it was one of the best humour books I have ever purchased. I did sneak a look at if before wrapping & it was so funny that I decided to finish the book off...... And the recipient loved it too..... At such a great price it's makes the perfect gift for the golfer in your life!!... I enjoyed it so much that I have just ordered another book by the same author... The nag pie series.... Can't wait until they arrive!
