Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience An ambitious weaving together of spiritual enlightenment, the game of golf, and the functioning of the brain, in a personal narrative packed with original insights.
Herb Sendek North Carolina State basketball coach On the Sweet Spot is an extraordinary book on the connection between peak athletic performance and higher awareness. I've seen Dr. Keefe provide great benefit to athletes for years, and I'm tremendously impressed with how clearly his concepts come through on every page. I heartily recommend this book to any golfer, athlete, or anyone who has always wondered about the source of excellence in all of us.
Daniel Weinberger, M.D. Chief of Clinical Brain Disorders Branch, National Institute of Mental Health Athletes know that sport is all about the mind, and golf is the ultimate mind game of sports. Richard Keefe has taken the mind and the muscle aspects of golf and put them solidly in the mainstream of modern brain science. For weekend duffers and professional athletes, he has written an entertaining and richly informative work about how the brain processes information to help the ball get to the hole. For students of neuroscience, the book explores how complex principles of brain organization and function translate into a successful skill. Dr. Keefe has managed to build a unique bridge from some of the most exciting new developments in the science of the brain to some of the most frustrating aspects of trying to hit a golf ball.

This is a lovely book, packed with wonderful information about how the brain functions and how to LET whatever you are doing flow. If you have ever experienced that great golf shot or round or performance when everything felt easy and then have had the frustrating experience the next day (or shot) when things were not working well, you will benefit from this informative book. If you golf, you surely know what I mean! His discoveries and suggestions for finding that wonderful zone are useful. The suggested meditation, applies to almost any activity one chooses to do well. Well written and touching.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
