Many times its been said you learn more from losing than winning. In golf that means players have frequent opportunities to learn from their mistakes. However, the game also allows people to observe and learn from others. With The Masters coming up this week, a lot of people will look to today’s stars such as  McIlroy, Spieth, and past green jacket winning legends like The Golden Bear to get tips for their business on and off the course. So what do today’s top business executives and entrepreneurs have to learn from Jack Nicklaus’s golf swing? Plenty, according to bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud, whose latest book, The Power of the Other: The Startling Effect Other People Have on You, from the Boardroom to the Bedroom and Beyond—And What to Do About It (HarperCollins Publishers, $27.99), draws some of its most important lessons from, “the greatest golfer the world has ever known.”

A familiar face and voice to millions of readers, TV viewers, and radio listeners, Dr. Cloud—co-author of the bestselling Boundaries series—has written over 40 books and sold more than 10 million books worldwide. He is a frequent guest on national news programs, and has a syndicated radio show that airs in over 200 markets. In The Power of the Other, Dr. Cloud considers Nicklaus as, “the embodiment of the essence of performance,” and a supreme practitioner of self-control, ownership, and responsibility. In a chapter titled “Freedom and Control,” Dr. Cloud analyzes Nicklaus’s legendary, 218-yard shot at the seventeenth hole of the 1972 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach to animate some of his most insightful ideas about leadership and performance.

Whether you’re an athlete, a business executive, a military officer, or a parent, The Power of the Other is a book that offers practical guidance to improving performance, health, and well-being.
