A must have for anyone seeking serious improvement

If you buy this audio book expecting it to shave 5-10 shots of your game by the weekend you will be disappointed - but if you do this I'll bet you have a garage full of training tools, drivers and putters that have disappointed you also !!. This, like Bob's other works, is instead a well researched and highly practical insight into the power of the mind and the effect it has n your scores and enjoyment of the game.

Bob's simple and no-nonsense approach to understanding and accepting what happens on the course has been of great value to me in a time when my handicap had slipped backwards a few shots, my frustration had increased and at times the enjoyment had gone for me. Thanks to Bob I now practise and play with a new sense of purpose and self-acceptance and as a result both my scores and enjoyment have improved.

Bob's focus on the short game, putting, pre-shot routines and strategy are the basis of the book (and all his others) and very well explained through his useful tips and anecdotes ? he has after all worked with an impressive array of pros.

This CD lives in my car and I listen to it at least once a week ? I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve AND is prepared to work towards it over time. Miracle seekers need not apply!

Any standard of golfer will benefit from this !

Bob Rotella takes what seem to be very complicated situations and turns them into screamingly obvious ideas and concepts.The ideas and principals are so simple and easily explained that one might wonder why they never thought of them.

Before you buy the next $400 driver, buy this book

It's so often that golfers blame the club, ball, course, weather or even their playing partner after a poor shot or round. "Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect" get's down to what issues really need to be addressed to improve one's game. It's not another "gimmicky" book or swinging aid. This book is about getting into the right frame of mind during play and finally being able to post the score you always knew you could.

Buy this book before spending money on another overpriced club.

Golf is not a game of Perfect

This book can help your game more than any technical manual or lessons. I swear the stuff in this book took me from an 18 handicapper to an 8. I've read dozens of books on the game and this is in my top five. You won't regret this one.

Great Voice and Great Listen

What made the experience of listening to Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect the most enjoyable?

Honestly I really enjoy listening to audio books, which may make my opinion bias, but this book may be one that could really get through to almost anyone. It's considered a self help book, but I would consider it a method of meditation :-)

What did you like best about this story?

The way he drops names in the book doesn't set an ego driven tone, but one of happiness. He goes through his time talking about his clients and their set backs and tribulations. How they strive for perfection, but understand the elements of the human condition. Not everything can be physical perfect, but you must be mentally close enough!

What about Dr. Bob Rotella’s performance did you like?

His voice was not boring, but very intriguing in a confident exciting way.

What did you learn from Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect that you would use in your daily life?

The mental aspect of how to live life and how to really set yourself up for success on the golf course... or any place that your two feet end up taking you!

Still every bit as valid

What could a golf shrink tell me that I hadn't already figured out through years of frustration? Plenty. Although much of it is the power of positive thinking, the beauty is that it is focussed on how to manage a golf course, how to practice, what to concentrate on and how the professional golfer thinks. You won't be disappointed!

Great for any type of golfer

This is a short and simple method to help ease your mind while playing golf. It's not a miracle worker but will definitely aid the "average" golfer if he/she applies the techniques described by Dr. Rotella. If you've found yourself focusing too much on mechanics in your swing or putt, OR if you're just a beginner looking for a good golf book, I'd say this will help both aspects (mentally). However, don't expect to get a tutorial on proper techniques, degrees, stances, etc. w/ this. It's strictly mental, and if you've played golf a few times, you know how mental the game can be. I purchased this yesterday and have already listened to it twice.

Excellent book

I started the year (2010) as a 7.1 handicap and steadily worsened to an 8.5. I hadn't shot in the 70's in over 9 months dating back to October 2009 and my handicap suffered because of it. I knew I had to do something other than increase my practice. I just had leaks in my game because I knew I was fully capable of shooting in the mid 70's. Well, I've played 7 rounds since listening to this book and I've shot 5 rounds in the 70's. It's funny how I was letting my mind get in the way of playing the game. I wasn't trusting my lines or my aim.

I may not be the typical result of this book but it really helped me concentrate on the correct things. It cleared my mind. It won't make you a pro overnight but it will help you improve quite a bit (relative to your current ability, of course). I highly recommend this to anyone who plays the game and overthinks the game....which I think is everyone!

Perfect for Perfectionists

I casually started playing this in the car while I was driving our 14 year old son. He was immediately captivated. He is a perfectionist. This explained to him the importance of having big dreams! It also validated that his grit (passion and perseverence) will pay off, The stories rang true for him, and it was an excellent antidote to the angst of being 14, starting high school, joining the high school golf team, and just winning his first qualifier. I'm excited to play it for our middle, who loves the game, but doesn't know how to make it his own. At the same time, it was excellent for me, as their mom. It equipped me with the knowledge I need to support my children as a golf mom, and it helped me as a woman in my own career. I've spent the last two years working with children with learning disabilities. I quickly discovered that helping these kids overcome the belief that they couldn't was essential to their success. I've long thought golf is a metaphor for life and for faith. This is a goldent thread in that tapestry.

It is short and to the point.

Not verbose. Loved it. Very helpful.
