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!
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.
