5.0 out of 5 stars So Much More than Golf!
Peck tries to provide non-golfers with an explanation for our fascination with what seems to be a very silly little pastime. He also provides golfers with an opportunity to examine their own lives in the context of golf.
Peck is saying so much more than "Golf is like life". He challenges us to examine ourselves during a round on his imaginary golf course...

2.0 out of 5 stars A Very Deep Book
This is a very deep book and not really a golf book, more a self improvement book wrapped around the spirit of golfing. I found it very hard to read, although I did find some of his stuff relevant a lot of it was 'mumbo jumbo'. A bit like Marmite some will love it and some will hate it!

Peck tries to provide non-golfers with an explanation for our fascination with what seems to be a very silly little pastime. He also provides golfers with an opportunity to examine their own lives in the context of golf.
Peck is saying so much more than "Golf is like life". He challenges us to examine ourselves during a round on his imaginary golf course and hole by hole helps to us understand ourselves and our nature to such an extant that by the time you reach the 18th hole you can't wait to play again.
Peck love of the game shines through and this book will help any of those deeper thinkers to understand their own love affair with the grand game and hopefully provoke some non-golfers to take a look at the game!

3.0 out of 5 stars Please, its just golf, 17 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Golf and the Spirit: Lessons for the Journey (Hardcover)
Scott Peck has written some serious and worthwhile books but he gets windy and overblown about golf and how his golf game has taught him more about life. The golf as metaphor genre is getting tapped out. Enough, already.
