Golfers often admit that the moment they grip a club in their hands, they lose all sense of rationality. For one thing, some golfers simply don't know when to stop playing--and you might see some of them trying to sink a putt on a busy city sidewalk. These golfers haven't gone totally insane; they've merely joined thousands like themselves who play the latest, coolest, variation on a famous old game. They're playing extreme golf. At last, aficionados of extreme golf have their very own how-to book: The Official Extreme Golf Manual. Here are ideas for playing a quick lunch-break round on the street outside the office . . . or on a ski slope during summer when it's too warm to ski . . . or on an ice pond when the regular golf course has closed for winter! Author Andrew Gellatly--with tongue only slightly in cheek--describes a variation called speed golf, gives advice on proper attire while playing extreme golf, and even offers information on participating in extreme golf competitions. Finally, he warns his readers about certain hazards often encountered by players of this unusual game, and devotes a full chapter titled First Aid for Extreme Golfers. Lovers of golf will love this book--even if they finally decide to stick with more orthodox versions of the game. Illustrations on most pages.
Lost Tycoon presents an unvarnished, in-depth portrayal of the man who vows to "Make America Great Again." Although it was first published in 1993, Lost Tycoon shows us that The Donald's personal character, political philosophy, business ethics, and attitude towards women haven't changed much in the past two decades.Trump is a man of many lives, and many wives. He is arguably the greatest self-promoter in the annals of American business. After inheriting a fortune, he made and lost billions in real estate and casino gambling, rising phoenix-like from his own ashes. He is a reality television show star, a father, a grandfather, and an alleged rapist. In Hollywood terms, he has literally been the producer and director of his own biopic--a real life "Citizen Kane," whose father hammered the same lines into his head when was a little boy: "You are a killer . . . you are a king . . . you are a killer . . .you are a king."Harry Hurt has created a cinema verité-style narrative that allows the words and actions of the principals to speak for themselves. It is indisputable that Donald's exploits in business, entertainment, and politics prove that he is--to borrow a metaphor from Fred Trump Sr.--"a killer." Reading this important biography about the real Donald Trump will help you to make an informed and engaged choice as to whether he is worthy of being "king."

Financial Times Best Book of 2014 It’s still known as the “rich man’s game” and considered taboo, and yet golf is booming in China — hundreds of new courses have opened in the past decade, despite it being illegal for anyone to build them. Award-winning journalist Dan Washburn follows the lives of three men intimately involved in China’s bizarre golf scene. We meet Zhou, a peasant turned golf pro who sees the game as his way into China’s new middle class; Wang, a lychee farmer whose life is transformed when a massive, top-secret resort springs up next door; and Martin, a Western executive maneuvering through a highly political business environment, ever watchful for Beijing’s “golf police.” Charting these three different paths to the new Chinese Dream, The Forbidden Game is a rich and arresting portrait of a country of contradictions.
