My favorite sports blogger, Tommy Lawlor, wrote a review of my book. He's the first one. If you want to see it in context of his whole post, here's the link: http://igglesblitz.com/philadelphia-eagles-2/eagles-notebook-12/#disqus_thread. If you just want the gist, here is the relevant excerpt:
I want to talk to you about a pair of great books. First up is a book by one of our own, an Eagles fan. No Tom McAllister didn’t write about the time that Reno Mahe stalked him in the grocery store (“I’m telling you, that’s Tom McAllister…the author”).
This is a book by Fred Gratzon called Instant Athlete. It is a book about how to improve at athletics, but without being about specific athletic skills. The book teaches you some simple things to do (I hesitate to call them tricks because that has a negative connotation). These simple tips can make a huge difference.
The book centers on how they can help you in tennis, golf, and baseball, but I think they could apply to other sports as well. I have not had a chance to try them out. I haven’t played tennis or golf in the past 3 or 4 years. And to be brutally honest, I suck at both. I was such a bad golfer that a fairway once sued me for cruel and unusual punishment. Like most golf stories, that is one million percent true.
After reading the book, I really want to go play golf and tennis to try out the tips. If an awful athlete like me can genuinely improve, there is hope for the rest of the world.
I can’t really give the secret away. You need to buy and read the book to get the information. I can tell you that it is simple. I can also tell you that it isn’t something you’ve likely thought of yourself or heard from others. That’s the genius of it. So obvious, yet so hidden.
Go to the site InstantAthlete.com and listen to Fred tell you more about the book. I can guarantee you will be fascinated by what he has to say.
