    The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas.

    What would have made Power vs. Force better?

    Someone else reading it. It is boring - I kept listening but it is a waste of time.


    Has Power vs. Force turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Perhaps.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. David R. Hawkins?

    The lady who does the intro.


    Any additional comments?

    So hard to follow - so tired of buying these books that are no good but have good ratings!! Sigh....

    What made the experience of listening to Gary Player the most enjoyable?

    Fast paced interview - holds your attention from beginning to end - Gray Player is more than a Champion Golfer - he is a humanitarian with a great world view.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No wonder the interview is fast paced! Danny Kelly covers Mr Player's life from his childhood to the present day. It is clear that Gary Player still has a lot to offer this world and he intends to keep contributing for much more to come.

    Along with being a Champion Golfer Mr Player 's life includes interactions and dealings with the humblest of us, to the greatest of us. His love for nature, animals and humankind is apparent and he offers many wise words as they (Kelly and Player) take this quick journey through his accomplishments and contributions. He shares in an open and honest way and he shares straight from the heart. Such an interesting man! We can all learn from him.

    Informative and inspiring!

    Gary Player is one of golf’s greatest champions. As one of the "Big Three" of golf’s golden era (with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer), he helped launch golf as a major international sport. He sits fourth on the list of most major victories on the PGA Tour and built a reputation of being fearless on the course and steely on the greens. Don’t Choke is his look at what it takes to achieve success when the pressure is on. Player explains how and why he became a champion and what it takes to win in big-time golf, but he also explains how learning to cope in pressure situations can help anyone.

    This book is a MUST - I highly recommend it. What an amazing story and man. I bought it for the golf content but came away inspired not only about golf but about life!


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you have ever wondered what a Champion of golf thinks - what secrets they apply to their game - then you are in the right place. What to know how to approach the game; your opponents, or the course?? - it is all here. Not a word is wasted - it is power packed - this book is so good it deserves a second listen. Very easy to listen to and very easy to apply to your golf game - Great tips that I took to the course today. Inspiring stories that will stay with me. This book really hit a cord and Gary Player has just become a mentor of mine - Thank you Gary for sharing this valuable information - please write more!!


    What does Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved the narration - was worried when I saw that Mr Player was not reading it himself but I needn't have given it a second thought - very well done.

    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.
