Golf has come a long way from the Highlands of Scotland. It has grown to become a multibillion dollar a year industry and has captivated the interest of people of all ages, all over the world. Also, the concept of using common activities to teach valuable principles for living isn't new. The many parables Jesus Christ taught used metaphors that were common to life. This isn't the first book written to draw analogies between the game of golf and the game of life, but it is unique in that the author has included some of his own stories and experiences. During the time he worked on a beautiful golf course as it was being built, he felt prompted to write down some of the insights and comparisons to life, from a Christian perspective, that God was showing him. This little book is simply meant to be a vehicle to direct heart and mind from earthly things to things above. Jesus is still speaking to the hearts of people today. Read on and see what He is saying to you! About the Author: C. D. Wood has also written the first two volumes of The Jasharian Chronicles (Jashar and Eshek). He has also illustrated a children's book called The Quiggely Quee. This is his first non-fiction book. He and his wife currently live in Shelburne, Ontario.

"Exploitation: Dawn of the Cold War" is a history play by Robert Huddleston. As American forces advanced into Germany in WW II, small, highly mobilized unites called "T-Forces' were close behind ready to identify and guard coveted equipment and related documents. Act One is set in May 1945 and the T-Force officer set to guard a Nazi rocket factory called Mittelwerk is visited by two officers of Army Ordnance Special Mission V2 who have been ordered to locate and ship to the U.S. one hundred rockets. Act Two covers the arrival of two members of the U.S. Naval Technical Mission, one being Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., a civilian attached to the mission. Act Three focuses on the conflict between exploiting German technology and prosecuting Germans who used and mistreated slave labor used in the rocket factory. Playwright Robert Huddleston, a combat pilot in the Second World War, has been on the fringe of the German-American rocket programs. As an Army Air Forces' officer, he served on the AAFs' effort to exploit German technology. In the 1950s he was posted to the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, an assignment that stimulated interest in the exploitation effort. This was followed by employment with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in Washington. Huddleston is the author of "Edmundo: From Chiapus, Mexico to Park Avenue," the story of a Mexican-American espionage agent in Spain who married a German princess whose father supported Adolf Hitler. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri, the George Washington University and the National Defense University. Married to the former Pepita Lassalle, the Huddlestons reside in a retirement community near Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Put aside the idea of becoming a world-class golfer for a moment. Become a golf guru instead! "You! A Golf Guru!" is not a golf coaching manual. It's a golf experience manual. It tees up ideas, thoughts and perspectives that will improve your approach to the game and boost your enjoyment of the sport. Illustrated by memorable and humorous anecdotes that golfers and some non-golfing partners will relate to, the book examines key aspects of the game, both on and off the course. See how the lessons learned can also help in the other, not-so-important aspects of your life such as your marriage, your kids and your job - providing all the justification you'll ever need to play even more. Once you start to walk off the 18th more regularly with a smile on your face, you'll be well on your way to golfing enlightenment. Others will notice the change. They will buy you drinks in the clubhouse, in the hope that you will pass on your secret. And you will share the lessons you have learned, for you are a golf guru and that's what gurus do. Besides, you like free drinks.
