When he first started playing golf, Ricardo Sosapavon found little, if any, information in books that would actually help a beginning golfer-most books were too technical for the beginner or assumed the reader already has some familiarity with the game. This became the inspiration for I Love Golf! A Survival Guide for Beginners, a well-crafted, fun, and easy-to-understand golf instructional for anyone who is new to the game. I Love Golf! is written in a fun and informative way-golf lingo and concept are translated into every-day language so the reader can easily understand, and starts at the very beginning, giving detailed explanations of basic concepts such as: A thorough explanation of the game Easy-to-understand instructions and diagrams Suggestions on how to avoid embarrassment as a beginner Great anecdotes from the author's experiences as a golfer Tips for mastering the mental game I Love Golf! is the perfect book for anyone who wants to learn the game."

From the author's Introduction: "'Playground' is the definitive collection of my poetry work, from the upbeat ones (show me the snowfall/show me flake by flake) to the downer ones (In my cell, I sit/And mourn for the loss of my spirit)... and with the concept of it being my 'playground' I decided to showcase as much of me 'playing' as an artist and even threw in some drawings." Playground contains poems from previous self-published poetry books by the author, including 'Felicity'.
