'Play It Where It Lies!': How to Win at the Game of Life with the Rules of Golf by Don E. Peavy
This work poses the basic rules of golf as a metaphor for life and argues that life is a game that can be played successfully. The book enumerates some basic rules of life (twenty-one in total) and shows how others have followed and violated these rules to their ultimate victory or defeat. Many popular culture references are culled from both North America and abroad to demonstrate the universality of uncluttered philosophies. Autobiographical snapshots along the way to add credibility to the project. Play It Where It Lies! clarifies the academic, heady malaise in which philosophy presently finds itself, and offers a path of life that is freed from the rigors and confusion of religion. In doing so, this work encourages an authentic life of decency and determination that most always involves "playing" in the life in which one is, not in the one he or she wishes.
