Putting Out of Your Mind is an informative and valuable guide to achieving a better golf game. While most spend their time trying to perfect their swing, Rotella encourages golfers to concentrate on their putting: the most crucial yet often overlooked aspect of the game. From true-life stories of such greats as Davis Love III, David Duvall, and Brad Faxon, to dozens of game-changing practice drills, Putting Out of Your Mind is the new bible of putting for amateurs and pros alike.

Whilst the audiobook is only an hour long, it is worth every penny. After listening to this book I began to enjoy putting so much more and my score's reflected it :)

Columnist for The Times and best-selling author of Bounce: The myth of talent and the power of practice, Matthew Syed argues that the key to success is a positive attitude to failure. What links the Mercedes Formula One team with Google? What links Dave Braisford's Team Sky and the aviation industry?What is the connection between the inventor James Dyson and the footballer David Beckham? They are all Black Box Thinkers.

Would you listen to Black Box Thinking again? Why?

This is a great book. The way we view failure as a culture isn't ideal and is leading to a lot of issues. Syed wonderfully highlights the problems with our views on failure and how systems can be better improved with a change of mind-set.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

Do work that matters. Productivity isn't just about getting more things done. It's about getting the right things done - the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward. In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before. So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity? When we take God's purposes into account, a revolutionary insight emerges. Surprisingly, we see that the way to be productive is to put others first.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Matt Perman is clearly a very well read man in both theology and time-management. What this book is, is a culmination of a lot of other people's ideas into Matt's own system for working. The content is good, however, Matt's reading is quite irritating and as others have said I wish he'd hired a professional to do it. He also won't stop harping on about all he has done in his own career and struck me as quite big headed. I would recommend reading Covey's '7 habits of highly effective people' and Allen's 'Getting Things Done' and forming your own opinions. Leave this book alone.
