“Success inspires you to succeed, and when you repeat this under different conditions, it makes you stop and think about this. And if you find this stimulating, you might emulate this as well! This is what Brad Kearns attempts to do by writing a book on the factors responsible for making Tiger a super achiever. People with vision live with discipline, and they make sure their routine is not altered at any point of time. Tiger has his own formula, which has worked for him, and Kearns suggests that it can work for everyone. Yes, even if you are not a golfer, you can emulate the same into your daily life. It is the second time, that Kearns has used a great athlete to promote the age old adage—‘self-help is best help’.
Earlier, he wrote How Lance Does it, which was received well across the world. This appears to be sequel on the same line and meant to attract readers who are looking for inspiration and to some guidance. To write another thematic self-help book, Kearns must have received positive feedback from the market and readers. This is the third book by the author, not to mention of the numerous articles and research papers published in various sports journals in the world. And he has all the credentials to write on sports.
A successful triathlete professional, he won 31 events and was ranked number three at one time. An acclaimed motivational speaker, his first book was Breakthrough Triathlon Training. He also plays golf with a 3.8 handicap and has deep interest in the game. Interestingly, he was a competitor in the South California Junior Golf circuit, where Tiger Woods was noticed as a promising young golfer. He was lucky to have not met Tiger as a adversary in any competition. All this makes Keearns a right person to write on the Tiger phenomenon, and how the World No.1 golfer achieves success not only on different golf courses across the world, but also as a human being with lifelong commitment to ‘care and share’. A book worth reading.”
