Book Review 'Life on the Green' Lessons and Wisdom from Legends of Golf

 I like inspirational reading. With the invention of smartphones...yeah...I'm that old.... (to remember that day of invention) some of my favs are apps the send inspirational push notifications daily. I love that you can be "nudged" into pausing from what you were just pushed.

...soundbites of life... 

But for me, nothing beats holding a book and reading a passage...getting context of that passage from the storyline...and getting a truer meaning from what you just read. 

Life on the Green is such a book. 

Author Ann Liguori has put together conversations of 12 familiar golf stars into a very readable book that focuses on what makes these people tick...and... what do you think it takes to have success in golf and in life (guess what?! They are intertwined!)

My favorite person that she interviews is Jack Nicklaus. in the sub-chapter "What makes a Legacy" Jack talks about charities, and how much his career has meant to these fine endeavors. He says "That's all fantastic, we're very proud of what we've done. But it all happened because I made a couple 4 foot putts. And if I had not made those 4-foot putts, we wouldn't be in this position."

Mind-blowing. Amazing how something so big starts with something so small. 

like soundbites of life...

Keep it in the short-grass,
