    Everything I Learned About People, I Learned From A Round Of Golf
    While I concede that one can determine if a person is trustworthy by the look in their eyes or the degree of strength in their handshake, I believe a better way to get more than a glimpse into one’s soul is to play a round of golf with the person, where you have a few hours to engage in conversation, listen carefully to what they say and how they say it, observe their body language, determine if they make excuses for bad shots, exhibit anger too severe, have difficulty concentrating.
    After playing several thousand 18-hole rounds of golf with all types of people – from Ed the plumber, to tour professionals Curtis Strange and Seve Ballesteros, to actors Telly “Kojak” Savalas and Jack Nicholson, to Jonathan Abrahams, writer and producer of “Mad Men” and my former assistant at GOLF Magazine – either as a guest of a member or as their host, and sitting down with each at the 19th hole, following a round, for further discussion, aspects of their personalities are, inevitably, revealed.
    If you’re just out for a day’s golf at your local course, playing with members you know to enjoy the fresh air and exercise, don’t worry about doing this form of psychoanalysis. However, should you plan on interviewing a person for a job or you were invited for a golf game, knowing this is good time to sell yourself, then I suggest you read Everything I Learned About People, I Learned From A Round of Golf. The reason is the Do’s and Don’ts I present are evergreen – timeless – and can even be applied if your host invites you for breakfast or lunch before a round.
    You can now appreciate the reasons why my book is divided into three main segments – Before the Round, During the Round, and After the Round – with individual tips, such as Being a Good Host, in the first segment, Avoiding the Classic Faux Pas in the second segment, and Making Your Post-Round Moves in the third segment.
    Everything I Learned About People, I Learned From A Round Of Golf may not teach you how to succeed in business without really trying, but it will teach you how to succeed without wasting your time or spending additional money on needless collateral material, and, instead, help you succeed in business by having the most fun sticking to a game plan of a different sort – Playing Golf.
