Golf. It's the ultimate head game. And when nothing but the best advice will do, along comes M. Scott Peck, M.D., the celebrated psychiatrist and author of the best-selling self-help book of all time, The Road Less Travelled.

In Golf and the Spirit, M. Scott Peck writes a book for beginners and masters alike and even for nongolfers. It goes beyond mechanics to explore the deeper issues, ways of successfully managing the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of this most wonderful, maddening, deflating, and inspiring game.

Playing side by side with M. Scott Peck on an imaginary course of his own design - complete with illustrations of each hole - you will come to see the profound truths in this seemingly simple game:

• Appreciate that life is not linear.
• Come to understand your own anger and how to heal that which gets in your way.
• Accept the gifts of humility.
• Appreciate kenosis, the process by which the self empties itself of self.
• Benefit from the teachers.
• Know that in weakness often there is strength.
• Realize that to experience the blessings of golf and life fully, you must accept the divinity that underlies all things.

Like the best-selling volumes of Harvey Penick and Michael Murphy, Golf and the Spirit makes a unique contribution to the literature of golf and life. It goes beyond the body to address the heart and soul of the game, creating a rare opportunity for transformation in the lives of its readers, both on and off the fairway.
