Cracking the Code: The Winning Ryder Cup Strategy: Make It Work for You by Paul Azinger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
i like golf. i don't know that i like golf enough to read a book about it.
but i heard author Paul Azinger interviewed about Cracking the Code on Jim Rome's radio show and the book sound surprisingly interesting.
i ordered it and read it and i have to say - it lived up to my expectation.
basically, it's a book about the formation of the 2008 U.S. Ryder Cup team - and the success of the selection process.
Azinger used team building techniques from the NAVY SEALs and took the 12 man team and broke them into pods - based on personality and compatibility over skill on the golf course.
i really liked his model of team building.
frankly, i intend to take some of these ideas and implement them in the development of leadership teams (or 'pods') in my youth ministry.
it's an easy and interesting read.
