The Instant Millionaire - Mark Fisher. He had written a letter of resignation six months earlier and had walked into his boss’s office a dozen times with the letter burning in his pocket, but he had never been quite able to go through with it. It was funny; he would not have hesitated three or four years ago, but now he seemed unsure of what to do. Some-thing was holding him back, some kind of force - or was it simply cowardice? He seemed to have lost the nerve that had always helped him get what he wanted in the past.

"One last wager and then we'll stop. One hundred thousand dollars says you'll miss the next putt," said the millionaire.The golfer was about to swing the putter head back when he lost control, his nerve crumbled. Three feet. A simple little three-foot putt and he'd be a hundred thousand dollars richer. His hands trembled and his palms were moist; he felt paralyzed with fear as he remembered other putts like this one that he'd missed. He gazed at the cup, then at the ball, then at the cup again. His vision seemed to blur as the cup seemed farther and farther away, smaller and smaller . . . The Golfer and the Millionaire is one of those rare books with the power to change lives.

This is the third copy I have purchased, and won't be the last one. I am sharing it with most of the serious junior golfers I know.
A nice motivational parable for anyone in any pursuit.
Onaxan
The book was a pleasent surprise. I remember so many parts of the book because of the author's use of symbolism. What I took away from the book way that the old saying work hard and you will be successful is so true but the hard work has to be on your mind and emotions.

First Class read, have bought three more to give to friends as presents, and they really loved the book and all it implies.

If you are not a golfer, I recommend you skip this book. The parable depends on experiences that golfers have all the time, but that may be hard for nongolfers to appreciate.
If you are a golfer, read on. I rated this book a five star for you.
The basic lesson of this book is that success depends on proper physical and mental preparation. The advice on mental preparation is very helpful for golf, and should work well in general life.
Basically, the story revolves around a physically talented 30 year old golf pro at a country club. He thinks his life is over because he has not made the tour, has just been kicked out by his girl friend for not making a commitment, and sees no future except giving lessons and selling balls.
That night, he drinks a bit too much and totals his car while trying to stop to avoid crashing into a limo. The millionaire saves him from a fiery death and takes him home. The next day, they play golf. The millionaire finds ways to put the pressure on the pro to see why he isn't achieving his dream of being on the tour. Large bets to make 3 foot putts leave the pro unnerved, but $11,000 richer. The millionaire also loans the pro $25,000 and a Ferrari so he can try to qualify for the U.S. Open. You'll have to read the rest of the story for yourself, because to tell you any more would spoil the parable for you.
I can certainly share some of the key lessons. Most of us practice our golf and for our important life activities as though nothing is on the line. So we get better physically, but are mentally unprepared for the challenges of pressure situations. When these arise, our emotions and minds take charge and we perform poorly. You should instead practice like every shot or action is for winning the U.S. Open. Then when you actually play, or do your life activities, pretend like you are practicing (to relieve the pressure).
Whenever you start to have a negative thought (like I'm going to hit a lousy shot, or don't hit into the trees), stop before swinging or acting. Replace that thought with an image of the perfect shot following the perfect swing. The mental process of Jack Nicklaus is described as a model. Basically, you are building self-confidence. Self-talk is also prescribed.
The book also speaks of spiritual laws. One is to learn to love golf (and life) regardless of what happens. One way to do this is to live more fully in the moment. This means ignoring your bad shot that you just hit (other than to learn the lesson from what you did wrong mentally or physically to hit it poorly), or even the great one you hit. The book points out that you can be so pleased with your great drive (your last accomplishment) that you fail to focus on finishing your task -- scoring well on the hole. So you can now see how golf is used to show how self-confidence has to be combined with perserverance to get great results.
Although I have focused on the golf part of the story in this review, there's a lot in the book about love (of self, the opposite sex, for parents, for children, and for all humanity).
Overcome your stalled thinking about how to accomplish what you want out of life (and golf) with this excellent book!

Thank You, Steve.

The golfer and the millionaire is a great book about the realities of life, you are either living or dying. The main character in this book Robert is dying. He has given away all of his dreams and only has his fading talent and good looks remaining.
He has given away those things that make you successful. He has stopped trying. The book deals with the rebirth of Robert and his attempt to achieve success in not only his golf, but in the other far more important parts of his life.
Robert is fortunate enough to meet someone who awakens him, and helps show him the door to achieve his greatest level in life. Many people, whether golfer or not, can benefit from this book as we all look to be our most successful in life.
Blackbrand
While this story is a tale like many others it was still a fun read and killed the time on a long plane flight. Still nothing new here.
The book has great ideas, but it reeks of metaphors and similes found in high school term papers. If you mildly like this book, Og Mandino will blow you away with THE GREATEST MIRACLE IN THE WORLD.
