Quite simply indispensable
on 25 October 2010
Anyone expecting an esoteric, jargon filled, long winded epic on Neuro-linguistic Programming, quantum psychology, self-hypnosis and Zen will probably be bitterly disappointed by Dr Simpson's `Play Magic Golf'. Conversely any golfer wishing to discover an almost guaranteed way of improving their game or any sports psychologist looking for a beautifully simple synthesis of `flow' and quantum psychology ready packaged in a user-friendly format for their clients may find this to be indispensable.
In a field that is beset by often impenetrable psycho-babble Dr Simpson's gently humorous and plain speaking style is a breath of fresh air. I found the book quite addictive and read it in just one sitting. Like the best guilty pleasures I was left exquisitely dissatisfied and yearning for more. I am hoping a follow up will soon by on its way. Rumour is I may be not be disappointed.
Considering the quality of the content, the reputation of the author and the low price point I would expect this book to be sold in quite some volume. So don't be surprised if your golfing peers soon `mysteriously' start to improve their game in leaps and bounds. It might be an idea to level the playing field, no?
