Most of us think of bowling as a "sport" in quotation marks, and bowling alleys are places with disco balls, matching shirts, and funny shoes. But in the 1960s, New York City was the center of "action bowling", a form of high-stakes gambling in which bowlers—often teenagers—faced off for thousands of dollars every night. When money like that is changing hands, you can bet the pressure is on (and the balls are rigged), and losses come with dire consequences. But for a few kids, the world of action bowling would turn out to be a ticket off the mean streets and onto the Professional Bowlers Association Tour. For Ernie Schlegel, it would be a chance to shed his hustler ways and become a bonafide champion.
For the more than 100 million bowlers worldwide and for fans of timeless sports histories, Pin Action captures the underbelly of 1960s and '70s New York and tells the true story of how the most notorious action bowler of all time became a Hall of Famer. Set in the gritty, flashy, lost world of action bowling, Gianmarc Manzione tells an epic tale filled with seedy characters, uproarious eccentricities, improbable twists of fate, and a rags-to-riches narrative so crazy it has to be true.
Intrinsic Bowling - Beyond "The Zone" Into The Inner Bowler Dennis Hooker and Palmer Fallgren - For Beginning to Advanced Bowlers. Dennis and Palmer have taken the mental game to a new, more workable level - that of the Inner Bowler. Past what many have called "The Zone" - into a deeper, more satisfying space.
Palmer was Olympic Bowling Coach for Team USA , a pro on tour and TV, and a consultant for Brunswick. Dennis is a retired counselor, hypnotherapist, psychologist and writer of books used by more than 1 million youth. He now knocks over 20 - 40 more pins per game than before Let It Go!
Each of us knows - intuitively - how-to Let Go! of the ball in a way to get strikes. The wonderful thing about this program is the simplicity of it! It is easy to learn - and very enjoyable and satisfying to "turn it over" to something inside that knows better how-to bowl.
"Palmer Falgren's LET IT GO is a most interesting read. I used it in my advance classes. A great supplemental read to the classics I refered to in another post (Allen's THE MENTAL GAME; Hinitz's FOCUS ON BOWLING; Lasser, Borden, and Edward's BOWLING: The Handbook of Bowling Psychology). This book is different as it reflects the psychology of bowling's most successful hippie, Palmer Falgren. It's functional theme is from the blending of Eastern ( Buddhist/ Taoist) psychology/ philosophy with American naturalism that was derived from the American Counter Culture movement starting with Jack Kerouac's ON THE ROAD Beatnick philosophy/psychology. It is enjoyable and fun."- Gary Parsons
