    1. Telling our bodies how to do something is not the most effective way to improve performance. p5The quality of my teaching and of my students' performance took a major step forward the day I realized the extent of the disrupting effects of overinstruction. p5Three inner game skills: Concentration, Confidence, Willpower. p12I observed that the one doing the talking, whom I named Self 1, thought he knew all about how to play and was supervising Self 2, the one who had to hit the ball. In fact, Self [...]

    2. Recomiendo la lectura a todos los aficionados del golf.Tiene una propuesta muy interesante no solo del aprendizaje del mismo sino también de la forma en que lo podemos encarar para que se transforme en una experiencia revitalizadora del encuentro con uno mismo, con las emociones y sensaciones que el jugo de golf nos despierta y hacer de ello una actitud no solo deportiva sino también personal. Lo recomiendo

    3. Not just a great golf instruction book, but a great sports psychology book. It's no small wonder since the author wrote The Inner Game of Tennis first. These lessons are applicable to nearly any sporting endeavor. Truly insightful and original in it's approach. It's no wonder this started a movement. It's a pretty cool story too. Particularly since it's true.

    4. I read this years ago but didn't finish it, although some of the ideas stuck with me. However, when you're into learning the game (once more) the mental tips and tricks you need become bigger than the physical ones of swinging the club. Trying to combine the two is the trick, and I think this book works best when you've mastered the fundamentals of golf. Unfortunately, mastering the fundamentals can take forty years. Gallwey's frustrations and fascination over golf helps colour the book, and man [...]

    5. GreatnessThis is a book that brings a zen like attitude to a game called golf. It will help any golfer, or for that matter, any athlete learn the beautiful paradox of "effortless effort." I personally have used his message in Cowboy Fastdraw, where my shot is completed in under .400 of a second. Being in my subconscious mind is the only effective place to be, for the conscious mind couldn't react, cock, draw, and hit a 24" target at 21' feet, at .350 of a second, with a single shot revolver, eve [...]

    6. Tim describes how to trust and rely on your "inner self" (Self 2) to "feel" the shots they way you would like them to feel - as opposed to Self 1 controlling your mechanics and then blaming you for not following its instructions. Tim has written other "inner self" books, for example, on Tennis, Skiing and Music. He has also consulted for major corporations on the psychology and the power of human inner conscious and action. He claims he never had a golf lesson yet during the course of writing th [...]

    7. A terrific look at the conflict between mind and body in a sport where every action counts against the player. Well written with valuable tips on how to approach different situations, which actually have application in everyday life situations.

    8. Gallwey knows his sports, as well as his Zen approach to them. Having just recently returned to golf and have played tennis for many years, I found his insights helpful and delightful. Makes approaching both sports with a sane point of view.

    9. The foundation for most inner game books written since. This is a crossover jewel that not only gives you skills & techniques for the links but can be adapted to everyday life.

    10. Trying to control the outcome via consciously commanding your body is fraught with traps.Find ways to not think about what you're doing and release the motion.

    11. The author also wrote The Inner Game of Tennis. On the lines of "Zen and the Art of". It applies to everything in life.
