Credited with transforming the short games of world-class golfers like Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Annika Sorenstam, and Yani Tseng, Dave Stockton is one of the most sought-after coaches in golf.<P><P> Yet Stockton's natural abilities are more like the average player's than those of most tour superstars. Not particularly long off the tee and average in terms of ballstriking, Stockton has won multiple major championships through a willingness to set his ego aside and analyze his game objectively--precisely what make him so effective as an instructor. The hallmark of Stockton's coaching is the idea that "trying doesn't work." He shows students how to get out of their own way and let their subconscious take over. In Own Your Game, Stockton recreates the experience of riding eighteen holes with him at one of his highly sought-after corporate outings. He explains how any player can learn to use his or her mind effectively--both in the microcosm of the shot at hand and in plotting a way through a round. Amateur golfers are tired of trying to imitate the swings of the pros--to mostly disastrous results. Stockton gives players the tools and the freedom to play better with the swing they currently have. Portable, conversational, practical--and complete with a mini-guide to playing business golf with colleagues and clients--Own Your Game shows how players at all levels can master the all-important mental game.

In her latest book, depression counselor, Alexandra Massey, distils years of hard-won strategies for treating depression. She provides an easy-to-follow ten-step program that will help you beat it quickly and without pharmaceuticals. Massey, who has suffered from depression most of her life, refused to take prescription drugs when her symptoms became debilitating. "I was very clear about the root cause of the depression," she says. "It was very, very low self-esteem. The overriding symptom was deep hopelessness and I had a sense that connecting with others who knew how I felt was what I needed--not drugs." According to Massey, the first step toward recovery from depression is acceptance. "Depression is like wet sand. The more you push, the harder it gets. By accepting depression, you will find a sense of relief." The second step is trust. "When we are dealing with the despair and hopelessness of depression, it's almost impossible to believe that everything is going to turn out OK," she writes. Massey attributes her own recovery in part to her years-long participation in 12-step programs. From the recovery movement she learned the power of "letting a greater power into your life." Says Massey, "For me, real change didn't happen until I acknowledged that I couldn't beat depression on my own and that I needed to rely on something bigger and wiser than myself."These are the foundations stones. The remaining steps will lead you on a journey to a new, depression-free life. By following the steps, you will find greater peace of mind, more resilience, and, inevitably, the reemergence of your dreams.
