The Mulligan. Golf's generous forgiveness. A do-over. Wouldn't it be great to be able to take a Mulligan in life? To "do-over" some of the decisions we've made? To get a second chance? This book is an invitation to take a Mulligan, to revisit the most important shots on life's fairway, and to get a second chance at those we've flubbed. This simple, short volume presents Ken Blanchard at his best: full of wisdom, insight, and down to earth advise that can radically change the way we look at everything. Written in the appealing "parable" style of such other best-selling books as Who Moved My Cheese?, Gung Ho!, Fish! and Whale Done!, this is a heartwarming story of second chances in golf and in life. Under the tutelage of the Old Pro, a hard-driving Paul McAllister learns on and off the course about priorities, about self-confidence, about second chances for the shots we've flubbed, and about what it takes to play a good game...in golf and in life.
* In golf lingo, a "mulligan" is a "do-over." Suppose the game of life offered such a second chance! Packed with wisdom and down-to-earth advice, Blanchard's parable invites you to revisit your life's most important "shots," take another crack at those you've flubbed, and remember what it means to play a good game. 144 pages, 5" x 7" hardcover from W.
Everyone Needs a Second Chance on the Course and In Life ^Paul McAllister was a driven man. Ivy League educated and the founder of a multimillion dollar business, Paul was a success in everything but life-and golf. It only took one Pro-Am afternoon, one short putt, and one airborne putter to send his world flying in a different direction: a mulligan ^ Golf's gracious do-over, a mulligan is the beginning of Paul's own second chance. Guided by the wisdom and advice of an Old Pro, Paul learns about priorities, about self-confidence, and about playing a good game both on and off the course. ^ Written in the appealing "parable" style of other best-selling books such as "Who Moved My Cheese?," "Gungo Ho," and "Whale Done," golf pro Wally Armstrong and author Ken Blanchard condense decades of practical know-how into a simple book with an amazing message. ^ The Mulligan is a second chance to change it all, and improve both your life and your game
