Golf has come a long way from the Highlands of Scotland. It has grown to become a multibillion dollar a year industry and has captivated the interest of people of all ages, all over the world. Also, the concept of using common activities to teach valuable principles for living isn't new. The many parables Jesus Christ taught used metaphors that were common to life. This isn't the first book written to draw analogies between the game of golf and the game of life, but it is unique in that the author has included some of his own stories and experiences. During the time he worked on a beautiful golf course as it was being built, he felt prompted to write down some of the insights and comparisons to life, from a Christian perspective, that God was showing him. This little book is simply meant to be a vehicle to direct heart and mind from earthly things to things above. Jesus is still speaking to the hearts of people today. Read on and see what He is saying to you! About the Author: C. D. Wood has also written the first two volumes of The Jasharian Chronicles (Jashar and Eshek). He has also illustrated a children's book called The Quiggely Quee. This is his first non-fiction book. He and his wife currently live in Shelburne, Ontario.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic, timeless works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.

Do you look back on your school days, and remember magical times, powerful and enduring friendships, and secret adventures? Well, snap out of it. You're deluding yourself. Based on the popular website playgroundlaw.com THE LAW OF THE PLAYGROUND is a dictionary of the insults, games, torture, legendary anecdotes and pure creative insanity that we all - as pre-moral children -inflicted on each other. Whilst the emphasis is always on humour, the book acknowledges that children are bastards, and begrudgingly accepts that that is, actually- very amusing. Written with dark nostalgia - and more wit and substance than your average joyless I Love 1986 TV show, everyone can find something they will identify with in LAW OF THE PLAYGROUND. A timely antidote to the rose-tinted view of childhood offered by FriendsReunited.co.uk and SchoolDisco.com.
