The world’s library

While the players are warming up for the Walker Cup at everywhere from the Buckingham Palace to Pine Valley I have been busy trying to summarise my impressions from the talent development course I attended last week. In doing so I discovered something that looks way too good to be true. Deborah Meaden of the Dragon’s Den usually says that if that is what something looks like – it normally is too good to be true. And I guess that is why the World’s book publishers and authors still cannot make their mind up whether to love or sue Google for their gigantic book project. Of course I am talking about Google Books which could virtually put the whole World’s library at your fingertips. Will it cause us to by less books? Or will it perhaps give us the taster we need to go out and buy the ones that we otherwise would not have known about? Try to figure that out… All I know is that the information and knowledge that sits their waiting is absolutely incredible! Check it out:

And by the way – what a great winner the European Tour had last week. Alex Norén certainly deserved his first win. Not many players on tour combine tremendous talent with hard work the way he does. Usually, it pays of in the end…
