Overview

Smelling freshly mowed grass on a perfectly manicured course. Making par. Watching Tiger, Nicklaus or your son nail an impossible shot. Partaking in after-game banter at the 19th hole. All of these things bring pure joy to golfing enthusiasts, and so will Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul: The 2nd Round, an uplifting and entertaining collection of stories that celebrates the links and those who love them.

Whether you're a beginning hacker or a golfing ace, you know that there's more to this game than chasing a white ball. In one afternoon on the fairway, golf can remind you that often the greatest challenges you face are against yourself; it can provide you with a test of your integrity when a ball gets wedged under a tree root while your opponent isn't looking; and it can offer a chance to react with style or a scowl when you miss a "gimme." In that way, golf becomes a mirror reflecting life's triumphs and tribulations, teaching lessons that transcend the game and reveal the true nature of the human spirit.

Written by professional golfers, caddies and weekend duffers, Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul: The 2nd Round conveys what players have learned from and love most about the game: spending time with friends on your favorite course; seeing your short game improve after consistent practice; and bridging generations by helping the youngest member of your party address the ball while watching the oldest one hit a drive that's not as far as it was when he taught you how to swing a club.

In the spirit of this great sport comes a book for all those who love it -- or love it most of the time.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wisdom That's Par for the Course Golfers with a taste for chicken soup will appreciate Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Jeff Aubery and Mark and Chrissy Donnelly's Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul: The 2nd Round: More Stories of Insight, Inspiration and Laughter on the Links. In the introduction, the authors explain how golf is like a mirror that "surrounds our every shot, decision and intention on the course, and reflects it back in perfect clarity." From there, chapters entitled "Going for the Green," "Out of the Rough" and "Golf Links a Family Together" discuss the reflective nature of the sport. These pieces are alternately funny, thoughtful and poignant. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Biography

While Jack Canfield himself may not necessarily be a household name, it's very likely that you have heard of his famed Chicken Soup for the Soul series and nearly as likely that you have at least one of them sitting on your very own bookshelf! Having got his start as an inspirational speaker, Canfield's own story is nothing less than inspirational.

Jack Canfield had been traveling around delivering key note speeches and organizing workshops to help audiences build their self-esteem and maximize their potential when he had an in-flight brainstorm that changed his life. While flying home from a gig, Canfield realized that the very same advice he had been delivering during his in-person addresses could potentially form the basis of a book. Canfield used inspirational stories he'd gleaned over the years as the basis of his speeches, and he thought it would be a terrific idea to gather together 101 inspirational stories and anthologize them in a single volume. Upon returning home, Canfield approached friend and author Mark Victor Hansen about his concept. Hansen agreed it was a great idea, and the two men set about finding a publisher. Believe it or not, the mega-selling series was not an easy sell to publishers. "We were rejected by 123 publishers all told," Canfield told Shareguide.com. "The first time we went to New York, we visited with about a dozen publishers in a two day period with our agent, and nobody wanted it. They all said it was a stupid title, that nobody bought collections of short stories, that there was no edge -- no sex, no violence. Why would anyone read it?"

Canfield wisely practiced what he preached -- and persisted. Ultimately, he and Hansen sold the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book to a small press based in Deerfield Beach, Florida, called Health Communications. The rest, as they say, is history. There are currently 80 million copies of the Chicken Soup books in print, with subjects as varied as Chicken Soup For the Horse Lover's Soul and Chicken Soup For the Prisoner's Soul. Canfield and Hansen ranked as the top-selling authors of 1997 and are multiple New York Times bestsellers. Most important of all, the inspirational stories they have gathered in their many volumes have improved the lives of countless readers.

This year, expect to see Canfield's name gracing the covers of such titles as Chicken Soup For the Scrapbooker's Soul, Chicken Soup For the Mother and Son Soul, and Chicken Soup For the African American Woman's Soul. He and Hansen have also launched the all-new "Healthy Living" series and 8 titles in that series have already been released this year. There is also the fascinating You've GOT to Read This Book!, in which Canfield compiles personal accounts by 55 people each discussing a book that has changed his or her life. The most compelling of these may be the story of young entrepreneur Farrah Gray, who read Deepak Chopra's The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success at the age of 11 and made his first million dollars at the age of 14!

With no sign of slowing down, Canfield continues to be an inspiration to millions, who fortunately refused to give up when it seemed as though he would never even get his first book published. "Mark and I are big believers in perseverance," he said. "If you have a vision and a life purpose, and you believe in it, then you do not let external events tell you what is so. You follow your internal guidance and follow your bliss, as Joseph Campbell used to say."

Good To Know

Canfield is the founder of two California based self-esteem programs, "Self-Esteem Seminars" in Santa Barbara and "The Foundation For Self Esteem" in Culver City.

Writing the first Chicken Soup book was a lot more daunting than Canfield expected. After the first three years of research, he and Mark Victor Hansen had only compiled 68 stories -- 33 tales shy of their goal of 101 stories.

Along with co-writing dozens of full-length books, Canfield also publishes a free biweekly newsletter called Success Strategies.

Some fun and fascinating outtakes from our interview with Canfield:

"My inspiration for writing comes from my passion for teaching others how to live more effective lives. I started out as a history teacher in an all-black inner city high school in Chicago, graduated to a teacher trainer, then psychotherapist, then trainer of therapists, then large group transformational trainer and then a writer and keynote speaker. All along the way, my desire was to make a difference, to help people live more fulfilling lives. That is what I still do today. Most people don't know this but I was not a good writer in college. I got a C in composition. Nobody would have ever believed I would grow up to be a bestselling author."

"I play guitar, and I am learning to play the piano. I love movies and some TV shows. My favorites are Six Feet Under, Grey's Anatomy, House and Lost. I love to play Scrabble, poker and backgammon with my in-laws, nieces and nephews. We really get into it. I love to travel. I have been to 25 countries and try to add two or three new ones every year."

Maybe I Need a Crystal Ball

Until I started playing golf, I thought that wine tasting had to be the most confusing thing I'd ever done. People with names like Higgins rambling on about residual sugar and tannin, describing each quarter-ounce sample in terms like "full-bodied, yet unpretentious." And I could never remember whether I was supposed to age it, chill it or drink it with fresh fish during a full moon. Just when I thought I was a genius for knowing the difference between a cabernet and cabaret, I went to the pro shop for golf balls.

"What kind?" the pro asked.

"I dunno, white, I guess.ö

He rubbed his hands together as he scanned the tri-level ball display. "Do you want a two-piece ball?" I though this was a joke, of course. "No," I said. "I like to start off with them whole. They'll break when I wallop them with my driver.ö

"Oh," he said without as much as a smile. "A big hitter. Then you want distance.ö

He handed me a shiny box with gold lettering. The price tag on the end was more than I'd paid for dinner for my wife and I the previous evening.

"These have computer-generated dimple patterns and use a complex two-piece injection molding system. They offer blistering distance.ö

"Perfect," I said. "Course I'll probably overshoot the green now on any hole less than four hundred yards.ö

He still didn't laugh. He just removed the box of balls from my hand and said, "Aahhh ... stopping power.ö

He slid another brightly colored box across

    Funny and inspirational

    Almost as good as the first edition. The brightest spot being the Character building story in the Golfmanship chapter. That Jim King guy is a riot. I laughed out loud!!
