The host and coproducer of the megahit reality show The Apprentice presents a unique collection of golf advice. From Palmer and Player, Mickelson and Vijay to Pat Boone, Stone Phillips, and even Yogi Berra, these players, teachers, businesspeople, and celebrities will help you play better and score lower. Everyone who plays golf has that little nugget of information they turn to on the course. But never before has such an array of golfing advice been pulled together in one place. Donald Trump, himself an avid—and very good—golfer, asked his friends, colleagues, and playing companions to offer thoughts on everything from the mental game to the swing to putting to playing golf the right way. And golfers being what they are, none could resist sharing words of wisdom. So here we find Vijay Singh telling us about playing simply: “You don’t need to get your golf swing by going through video cameras and stuff like that. Just kind of go out there and find yourself.” Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith talks about not overswinging: “Just learn to allow the club to do what it’s supposed to do . . . because the ball is sitting still.” Actor Michael Douglas has a specific routine to slow his tempo—he says his wife’s name, and doesn’t even think of starting to bring the club down until he gets to “Jones.” Taken together, these more than two hundred entries create a unique handbook, covering every aspect of the game—and ranging from the lighthearted to the deadly serious. Donald Trump’s book of advice is certain to take its place next to Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book as the ultimate in golf instruction.

Myrtle Beach is sometimes called the "Golf Capital of the World," with more than 80 golf courses. The Country Club of Charleston produced World Golf Hall of Game members Henry Picard and Beth Daniel. The 1991 Ryder Cup matches, the "War by the Shore," took place at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course, also the site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships. Hilton Head's Harbour Town Golf Links has hosted the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage for more than fifty years. Bob Gillespie and Tommy Vraswell detail the history of the game in the Palmetto State.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was in a group with three golfers who took turns chopping away at my ego. I didn’t argue with them, and instead just smiled and allowed them to have fun because with three against one, self-defense sounds the same as whining. #2 I was a spoiled brat, and I took up golf at nine years old. I was too young to fully appreciate the beauty and brilliance of my summer routine, which was to spend every afternoon telling my father the same story: I wanted to get out, but there weren’t any loops. #3 Tiger Woods was born just a year after I did, and he quickly became the king of golf. I, on the other hand, was not very good at golf, and it took me five minutes at Notre Dame’s golf tryouts to realize that there was so much good golf out there. #4 I was a freshman at Notre Dame, and I was nervous about trying out for the golf team. I was two strokes better than par, and the head coach started following my group as we made the turn. My playing partner started wondering aloud why I wasn’t on scholarship. I didn’t have the golfing talent of Tiger Woods, but I still quit.

On October 23, 2001, Apple Computer, a company known for its chic, cutting-edge technology -- if not necessarily for its dominant market share -- launched a product with an enticing promise: You can carry an entire music collection in your pocket. It was called the iPod. What happened next exceeded the company's wildest dreams. Over 50 million people have inserted the device's distinctive white buds into their ears, and the iPod has become a global obsession. The Perfect Thing is the definitive account, from design and marketing to startling impact, of Apple's iPod, the signature device of our young century. Besides being one of the most successful consumer products in decades, the iPod has changed our behavior and even our society. It has transformed Apple from a computer company into a consumer electronics giant. It has remolded the music business, altering not only the means of distribution but even the ways in which people enjoy and think about music. Its ubiquity and its universally acknowledged coolness have made it a symbol for the digital age itself, with commentators remarking on "the iPod generation." Now the iPod is beginning to transform the broadcast industry, too, as podcasting becomes a way to access radio and television programming. Meanwhile millions of Podheads obsess about their gizmo, reveling in the personal soundtrack it offers them, basking in the social cachet it lends them, even wondering whether the device itself has its own musical preferences. Steven Levy, the chief technology correspondent for Newsweek magazine and a longtime Apple watcher, is the ideal writer to tell the iPod's tale. He has had access to all the key players in the iPod story, including Steve Jobs, Apple's charismatic cofounder and CEO, whom Levy has known for over twenty years. Detailing for the first time the complete story of the creation of the iPod, Levy explains why Apple succeeded brilliantly with its version of the MP3 player when other companies didn't get it right, and how Jobs was able to convince the bosses at the big record labels to license their music for Apple's groundbreaking iTunes Store. (We even learn why the iPod is white.) Besides his inside view of Apple, Levy draws on his experiences covering Napster and attending Supreme Court arguments on copyright (as well as his own travels on the iPod's click wheel) to address all of the fascinating issues -- technical, legal, social, and musical -- that the iPod raises. Borrowing one of the definitive qualities of the iPod itself, The Perfect Thing shuffles the book format. Each chapter of this book was written to stand on its own, a deeply researched, wittily observed take on a different aspect of the iPod. The sequence of the chapters in the book has been shuffled in different copies, with only the opening and concluding sections excepted. "Shuffle" is a hallmark of the digital age -- and The Perfect Thing, via sharp, insightful reporting, is the perfect guide to the deceptively diminutive gadget embodying our era.

Wag is a charismatic and mischievous character. A soon-to-be Boston Pizza franchise owner, he likes to push people’s buttons and takes life to the extreme. After an evening out with his wife in Calgary, he decides to drive back to his temporary home in Lethbridge to make his early morning shift, hoping he can make it back in time to catch a few hours of sleep before a head office inspection. The next thing he remembers is his wife screaming. Wanting someone to help her, he tries to call out but realizes that he can barely speak, let alone open his eyes. Finally, only remembering sensations and sounds, he wakes up in Calgary Hospital, where he learns that he fell asleep behind the wheel and drove into a deep ditch, leaving him as a C5-C6 quadriplegic. Filled with anger and disbelief, he lashes out at those around him. His wife, who is unharmed, tries to remain hopeful, which infuriates him. He begins to spiral into the universal five stages of grief, moving back and forth between denial and anger as he begins his six month stay at the hospital. Though he finds strength and relief from fellow patients and their views on life, Wag’s anger and depression define him, and those around him wonder how he’ll survive once he’s thrust into the realities of the walking world. Full of dark humour and raw vulnerability, 4 and 1⁄2 Steps delves into the challenges Wag faces both emotionally and physically as he adjusts to his new stage of life.

"Think country-club clinic meets Navy Seals training. I will pay any price, bear any burden, leave my home to follow the seasons, build my own swing studio in the basement, construct a practice green in my backyard. . . . Everything the big boys have access to, I want double." Like most amateur golfers, Tom Coyne had often wondered whether the pros won because they were more talented or because they were more obsessed. Overweight and burdened by a 14 handicap, he decided to find out for himself what it takes to play like a pro. Charting his journey, which included hiring top golf gurus such as Dr. Jim Suttie—Paper Tiger takes readers from the Michelob tournament (a win for Tom) to the Australian Tour—where forty-mile-per-hour winds and a driving rain scare off his Japanese partners. With each chapter, he tracks his weight alongside his handicap, pursuing his dream with a reckless abandon that comes to involve hardcore diets, pricey technology, even psychologists. With echoes of Dead Solid Perfect and Who's Your Caddy? Tom brings his uniquely edgy, deeply human perspective to a game that can simultaneously bring out the best and the worst in everyone who tries to master it.
