This new edition of the classic Contemporary Theories of Knowledge has been significantly updated to include analyses of the recent literature in epistemology. Rather than merely making slight amendments to the first edition, Pollock and Cruz have undertaken a groundbreaking assessment of twentieth-century epistemology. This book is both an advanced textbook offering traditional discussions of foundationalism, coherentism, and reliabilism and a detailed treatise on the authors' own distinctive view, direct realism. Written in a clear accessible style, this book will be of interest to students of epistemology and to philosophers in general. Visit our website for sample chapters!

It's no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are short ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five pounds from his mates on Saturday morning, it's the little shots that make the difference. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Rotella, who has worked with stars like Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell, will teach readers how to use their minds to master the short game, by achieving a calm state of mind in which the focus is only one thing-the hole. In addition to preparing players mentally, Rotella will also explain the science of memory, and how knowledge of the brain's workings-in particular how it masters physical tasks-can improve a golf game, particularly the short game. The path to greatness isn't an easy one, and a player needs inspiration, which will come from great stories about the golfers and other sports professionals that Rotella has worked with. Mastering chips, pitches, bunker shots, and putts provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the game--and this is a pleasure readers will come to know by training their minds to become unstoppable golfers.

Two of golf's most revolutionary teachers share a personalized approach to accessing your peak performance. "The VISION54 approach is far more than just pure golf technique, it allows an individual to unlock their true potential by opening their mind and believing anything is possible to achieve." - David Leadbetter, David Leadbetter Golf Academy Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott are Complete Game Coaches, leaders of a new kind of golf instruction that focuses on more than just the grip, the stance, and the swing. Their VISION54 method targets the complete golfer-the whole person-not just the technical aspects of the game. Their coaching philosophy focuses on possibilities, not limitations, with an end goal of MY54-the idea that any golfer can reach their own personalized version of peak performance, scoring nothing but birdies on a par-72 course. Building on the core concepts introduced in Every Shot Must Have a Purpose and the strategic thinking in The Game Within the Game, Play Your Best Golf Now takes the mystery out of the soft skills of golf and shows golfers how to add these skills to their game for peak performance. Players learn to master the 8 Essential Playing Skills: 1. LEAVE YOUR MIND BEHIND and enter the Play Box 2. DECIDE AND COMMIT to your shots 3. FIND YOUR BALANCE both physically and mentally 4. FEEL YOUR TEMPO on the course and dance to its rhythm 5. TAME TENSION to improve your swing 6. BUILD EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE 7. STORE MEMORIES and learn from the past to make a better present 8. DROWN SELF-TALK IN USEFUL THOUGHTS And the 2 Essential Practice Skills: 1. SIMULATE GOLF on the practice range to maximize your time and effort 2. INTEGRATE SKILLS and practice with a plan These Essentials complement the technical anchors of the game-the grip, the stance, the swing-and give players a foundation for achieving their peak performance. MY54 is the vision, and these are the building blocks for achieving a higher level of play.

Steve Eubanks lives on a golf course, spends most of his time with a golf club in his hand, and simply cannot pass a course without playing it. In Golf Freek, he chronicles his travels around the globe for the sole purpose of playing as much free golf—the operative word being free—in as many interesting places and with as many interesting people as possible. As Steve himself says, “This book is not some mystic search to find my soul through a ball-and-stick metaphor. It’s about me, the golf freek, sponging free golf. It’s a mixture of On the Road (without the booze, hookers, guns, and poverty) and Rick Reilly’s Who’s Your Caddy? (with John Daly keeping his private parts to himself).” Along the way he tells some of the world’s greatest golf stories—funny, touching, bizarre, and sometimes personal—from his rounds with Arnold Palmer to his hole in one in the Chinese town where his daughter was born. These tales, taken together, add up to one of the most revealing books about From the Hardcover edition.
