what books do you own?
on: July 13, 2017, 11:43:26 AM
My first book was given to me from my first PSO who taught me how to use his press and drill my own ball. This was back in 2001/2?? I forgot the name of the book, but it was on ball dynamics and had a ballerina in those pages lol. Thin book, I guess for PSO's.

These are the other books/authors I have:

John Jowdy - with brian voss on the cover "bowling execution"
Dean Hintz - also with brian voss on the cover focused on bowling.
Mark Baker - The Game changer
Ric Hamlin/Justrico - Head Games: Mental approach to bowling

My question is... do you have or have read these books? What's your take on these books?

John Jowdy - bowling execution 2nd edition
Dean Hinitz - bowling psychology
Brian Voss - bare bones bowling
Does a round object have sides? I say yes, pizza has triangles..

aka addik since 2003

Agreed, these two books together is kinda like a "one two punch".....

One bowler at leagues enjoyed "bare bones bowling" told me to check it out.

I rec'd a copy of "Head Games" from Ric and I couldn't recommend it more.  Excellent read.

Head Games as well. Great to re-read from time to time. Hard not to laugh at myself when reading some of the stuff mentioned that I've done before.
