This Audio book / CD-box contains 4 x 2 discs. They are excerpts from some of Dr. Bob Rotella's books on the mental side of golf - read by the author himself.
I got them as a birthday present and though - at that time - I hadn't read any of Dr. Bob Rotella's books - but I must say: THIS IS GREAT STUFF!

Dr. Rotella talks you through a number of the psychological aspects & dimensions of golf. At some of the CDs he's making his points thru telling the story of players/golf matches - in others he's more straight forward on what to do and avoid.

Although the points Dr. Rotella are making might sound simple ("Focus at the present", "Accept the non-perfect strokes", "Aim for a small, specific target" etc.) - it is VERY helpful. There is more stuff in the books - but the CDs give you the opportunity to listen to this wise man in your car on the way to the golf course. Great idea!

One month after I got the CD-box, my handicap has dropped by 2 (in the low 20-s) - and what is more important: A round of golf is now more fun and interesting. Thanks Doc!

I bought these cd's having already read some of Dr Bob's books. These are definatly a great way of having the information presented.Stick on the CD and 45 mins later the information is locked in. Dr Bob's ideas are very simple - ie Pick the smallest target possible, forget about bad shots, don't over think or over read putts, see the target and react.

These ideas are very effective though and will give you the mental edge to play better golf. I managed to win our club matchplay tournament last year coming through 6 matches over a period of 2 months and I owe a large portion of my success to the ideas planted from listening to these cd's.

I have reccommended to them to several other players that I know ranging from high handicappers to scratch players and they have all found them very useful.

I now enjoy the mental challenge of the game instead of being frustrated by it and not only has my game improved (especially in pressure situations) but I enjoy golf much more.

I'm a big fan of Bob Rotella's books. I started reading them 2months ago and they have shaved 11 strokes of my score. I know this is a big claim but they really did make me realise my potential and now I have more clarity on what I need to actually improve on.

Now I'm not a fan of audiobooks over a book in this type of area as it is all too easy to zone out at key moments but having read the books I tend to put these on in the car on my way to golf as a refresher which works quite well.

Do not buy these CDs. The product description visible to me categorically does not state that the cd's are abridged versions of the book. As pointed out by another reviewer to choose random chapters out of Rotella's books is utterly useless. Amazon you need to look at your product description across all platforms as I have checked the product description again on the amazon iphone app and it does not state that the audiobooks are excerpts only. Imagine my bemusement when the first cd of golf is not a game of confidence ended after two chapters.
I shall be sending this back. Very disappointed

Worth every penny as the title says, these are ideal to sharpen your mind up and within days of listening to the CD's, I was back to winning ways. The CD's are good if you havnt come across Dr Bob's books in there own right, however they are great to use as a refresher to those who may have lost their focus since reading the books a while ago!

One again Doc you will be mentioned in despatches on prize presentation night at my golf club.

I've now noticed that the product description states 'abridged'. This makes sense for some audio books but to choose 4 random chapters from around 22 in 'Golf is a game of confidence' is ridiculous.

If you load the discs onto your computer or iTunes youll see the full chapter listing but no indication of whats actually on the disc.

I sent the first set back as I assumed they were faulty! I obviously should read the spec more closely but as mentioned above, choosing 4 chapters from c.22 is a con, not abridged.

If youve never read the books and just listen to random chapters in the car then you might be satisfied with this product but if youve read any or happen to see the full chapter listing on your PC then youll be sorely disappointed.

I enjoyed playing these in my car for the hints and ideas while driving, so you learn at your leisure without taking any special time.
Once I'd added these to my i-tunes and onto my mobile phone, the aids became permanent golf schooling aids.
So on a golfing trip the various volumes are great listening and preperation for your game of golf.
Always good to have an available hint / idea to consider.
Positive thoughts at any moment.

Having already bought a number of the Bob Rotella paperbacks I found this product useful for whiling away the hours as I travelled to golf matches and tournaments.

Not sure if there is meant to be some subliminal messages going on but what Rotella says certainly does sink in.

May be good for slipping into your CD player before you go to bed too. One never knows you might wake up a scratch golfer !!

I listened to these CDs in my car and it did really help my golf thought processes and actual game. Not keen on continual self-promotion.
