Longtime friends Larry Miller and James Redfield decided several years ago that a definitive work on the "zone" phenomenon needed to be done. This collaborative effort unites principles from Miller�s Holographic Golf: Uniting the Mind and Body to Improve Your Game (Pelican Publishing Company, pb) and Redfield's The Secret of Shambhala (WarnerBooks, hc), expanding on years of research in the field of performance enhancement from physical, spiritual, and psychological perspectives. Larry Miller is a professional golfer and lives in Louisiana.
