Golfer’s Palette

                As with all athletic endeavors, the ability to play consistently good golf requires impeccable preparation away from the course and a master’s grasp of key fundamentals. As Dr. DeVore enables the reader to soon become aware, patience, study, practice, and learning are key to being able to stand over a golf ball, deliberately quiet the mind, and move a golf club through the ball to an awaiting target.

Sitting in the Flames

                As reviewed by New York Times best-selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh, “In clear, heartfelt prose, DeVore describes a brave and unflinching confrontation with his past, made necessary in order for him to have a more meaningful future. War, he realized, isn’t just one man’s experience—it’s a sum total experience of an entire country. To stop wars, he argues, we must understand them and why we seem to need them.”
