Finding True Center continues the rich tradition of existential philosophical inquiry masquerading as a story about golf. Hackers of all abilities will enjoy the breezy travelogue and on-course reportage. Sentimentalists will like it even more." -- Michael Konik, author of In Search of Burningbush and Ella in Europe Lifelong friends and rivals Nick and Easy love both golf and an occasional wager. Their shared passion moves beyond the extreme when a tequila-inspired bar bet results in a far-fetched scheme: playing head-to-head in every state across America as the ultimate measure to determine the better golfer. Only their self-styled, cross-country championship takes a series of unexpected turns. As their three-year journey to golf's greatest courses unfolds, an unexpected cancer diagnosis threatens not only their wager, but also the limits of their twenty-year friendship. Against the backdrop of a startling request and moral dilemma choosing to die with dignity what they ultimately discover is the strength to handle the unforeseen, the underlying meaning of their bet, and the often difficult choices that define true friendship. Based in part on an actual bet between the Author and his best friend, Nick and Easy's journey seeks to be as thought provoking as it is entertaining.
