    "This is a stellar look into the mind of what makes a great athlete great and their thinking. It takes a unique person to do this and Jim does a great job opening the door into this fascinating world. It really gives you a unique viewpoint into the mind of a champion.

    "This solution seems to fit the topic well. The price is decent and the reviews are pretty solid as well. I guess psychology would fit in with this book as life without limits is somewhat a mental thing."

    "I hate golf. Then why was this book actually interesting!? I know, it shocked me, too. My uncle gifted me this book because he's a big golf fan while I amn't. I'm not one to deny a gift and therefore read it for my uncle. I can still safetly say that I am not a golf fan. However, I did gain an appreciation for the difficulties surrounding this game and those that play it face. Check it out - but I'd still only reccomend it if you're a golf fan/player."
