Book Reviews

Gil Anderson was featured in a recent article in Orange magazine.


“The book seems to me to be the product of Gil’s own spiritual journey. It is a lovely book. It is grounded in the Buddhist perspective, and is very mystical, spiritual and philosophical. It is an air I am familiar with. I suspect Gil’s students are most fortunate to be learning more than just how to swing a golf club. To Gil I say “Thank You” for challenging us to go deeper.”

“Anderson marries descriptiveness with a merciful conciseness that leads the reader very smoothly through the book. As for content, Anderson calls upon a lifetime of golfing experiences to paint the picture of the mental relationships between golfer, golfing, the golf course and course design itself through a light transcendentalist prism. He then blends these relationships by connecting the proper mental approach of the game of golf to achieving peak performance in life. His skillful crafting of such a weighty subject of spirituality was kept light and entertaining, culminating in a smooth read.”

“Had the honor of taking a lesson with Gil Anderson and it was such an incredibly valuable experience. Gil’s approach to the game and his vast knowledge of the many aspects of the game make him a go to guy and one to look to to not only improve one’s game technically, but more so, mentally. A must read book for ALL golfers, from Happy Gilmore to Phil Mickleson :) Seriously, Gil Anderson’s book, Going Fore It is worth every penny and then some. My advice is to go for it and get the book, you will not regret it!”
