As a healthy fifty-eight-year-old woman, a cancer diagnosis rocked author Gail Rognan’s world. In I Lost Two Boobs and Gained Two Balls, Rognan shares how she moved from fear and doubt to strength and serenity. She offers a raw, candid account of how she “grew a pair” and found her voice, realizing that in order to live she had to speak up and risk being judged and criticized. Her unconventional path to healing is both a memoir and a practical, supportive resource for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. Each chapter offers tips and resources for current cancer patients and chronicles the steps Rognan took in her own journey. By facing her illness and possible death head-on, she is offering knowledge that may make it easier for those who also have a difficult path to travel. By sharing her story, she sheds light on the darkness and guides you each step of the journey. Her story shares how you can learn how: • our mind, body, and spirit intersect to help us heal ourselves; • alternative health treatments can be combined with traditional health treatments; • to listen to ourselves so we can avoid illness; and • our illness can teach us about who we really are. Realistic and inspiring, I Lost Two Boobs and Gained Two Balls offers a poignant story for those touched by cancer.

In Bad Lies, golf's wittiest observer, photographer Charles Lindsay, celebrates the hazards and pitfalls of the game. Lindsay stakes out the diabolic border territories that encroach on golf courses--moon-crater bunkers, waist-high fescue grass, murky lake bottoms--to capture the unbelievable my-ball-went-where? moments that make the game so infuriating and so addictive for so many. This hilarious follow-up to Lindsay's popular Lost Balls (Little, Brown, 2005) features inspired and gorgeous color photographs, plus larger-than-life pictures of some of the world's rarest--and oddest--golf balls. Texts include a foreword by outspoken golf commentator Gary McCord, definitions of the game's offbeat terminology, and a meditation on the golf ball and the immortal soul.

Heidi Siefkas was a happily married, globetrotting professional who seemingly had it all -- until a tree limb in New York's Hudson River Valley struck her down, breaking her neck and leaving her unconscious. Suddenly, life as she knew it stopped. She lost her independence. She lost her career. She watched her marriage disintegrate as she confronted a trail of devastating lies about her husband's double life. She had lost all that mattered, but she was a survivor. She fought to restore her health, repair her broken heart, and rebuild herself. Along the way, she gained clarity about her core values, ultimately coming to a deeper understanding of what it means to have it all. Through down-to-earth, short vignettes, When All Balls Drop shows us how it's possible to look up in spite of pain, deceit, and loss. Heidi's memoir -- rich with hope and humor -- inspires anyone who's had to confront tragedy and reassess their life in the wake of life-altering events.

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. Harry Brown explores the composition, history, kinetic life, and the long deterioration of golf balls, which as it turns out may outlive their hitters by a thousand years, in places far beyond our reach. Golf balls embody our efforts to impose our will on the land, whether the local golf course or the Moon, but their unpredictable spin, bounce, and roll often defy our control. Despite their considerable technical refinements, golf balls reveal the futility of control. They inevitably disappear in plain sight and find their way into hazards. Golf balls play with people. Harry Brown's short treatise on the golf ball serves up surprising lessons about the human desire to tame and control the landscape through technology. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in the The Atlantic.

When Mohamed Noorani writes, he uses the nom de plume of Sandy Parr. Sandy Parr writes mostly on golf. He loves golf, but he is not the typical, ardent, or fanatic golfer who habitually watches the World Golf Ranking. Instead, Sandy spends his time writhing and agonising just to understand why the incorrigible weekend golfers (including him) find it so hard to shave off their handicap. He never pretends that he has the answer, or is even near to it. Nonetheless, he knows from observation that the touring pros are way ahead of the weekend golf nuts, simply because of their prowess in reaching the greens in regulation, their superiority in the delicate chipping and pitching shots, and their confidence in putting. In other words, the pros are superior in everything. This book is a compilation of what Sandy Parr had noted about golf as seen from the eyes of a weekend golfer. Sandy would advise that the easiest shots to shave off your score are found in the short game. Chipping, pitching, and putting dont require tremendous swing speed or physical ability. Plus, they can be practiced in your backyard or living room. Having a reliable tee shot that land in the fairway is important as well. Finding the short grass off the tee is much more important than distance, especially for high handicappers.
