I like this book quite a lot. I am reading it again at the moment. Some of the stuff that is covered is similar to what people will have read in other books too, but what I found really useful is it focuses on a winning mindset. Lots of these sorts of books have stuff about what your focus should be on - small targets, no swing thoughts, that kind of thing. This book is a little different to me in that the techniques in it are designed to get yourself out of your way. I have a tendency to think poorly on the course and it makes my scores go in the wrong direction. Things like thinking I don't belong or thinking I should lose if I'm playing with someone who is better than me. Thing is I'm often wrong and they're not better than me and I wind up losing because I think poorly. Self fulfilling prophecy and all that. 

If that sounds like something that might affect you, I heartily recommend the book. It's also written in quite a folksy style. It's got a lot of stuff about who he learned this stuff from and their thoughts. His course management section for example is written from the perspective of a European Tour caddie. Kind of a "if you're thinking of doing something stupid, think about what x would say if he was caddying for you". I quite like that too.
