I have read several accounts by Robert Towery and they are all good. This one gives a new perspective on the great man.

Very little was written about Ben Hogan up until his death in 1997, and much that was written was not authorised and was in some cases incorrect. Subsequent to his demise, a lot of writers seemed to jump on the band wagon with all sorts of books with quotes and quips etc. which I felt demeaned Mr. Hogan. Not until "Ben Hogan - An American Life" by James Dodson did we actually see some true substance that I felt actually honoured his memory.

Robert Towery, a relative by marriage to the Hogans, sets a few misconceptions straight in his very informative book. For instance the issue about Ben Hogan witnessing his father, (Chester), committing suicide. It was actually his brother Royal who saw it happen. This makes any Hogan devotee rethink what created the physique of Ben Hogan in a wholly different way.

Fantastic piece of writing, my congratulations to the author.

Great read for both golfers and history buffs. 1 Aug. 2014
By Frank Zepponi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As a long time fan of Ben Hogan --as well as all things golf-- I found the book unique in that it explored the more fascinating aspects surrounding the "Wee Ice Man". While there are certainly countless tomes covering Ben's amazing swing and steely mindset surrounding "the game", The Brothers Hogan brought to light his personal story and family's history that led to Ben's incredible successes... on and off the course. I especially enjoyed the book's ability to deliver me to the early years of "Pantherville" and Fort Worth's ensuing growth (wonderful photos!) to become one the nation's golf top havens... from Colonial CC, to Shady Oaks, to the Little Nine.

To understand the Hogan family as a whole --as well as the era in which they experienced both deep trials and hardy tribulations-- awards any true golf enthusiast a greater appreciation of one the world's best ball strikers, and delivers a human side to Mr. Hogan that is little known among the golfing press.

Read it, go for a stroll around your favorite course, and you'll "feel" this book.
Fantastic Read! 1 Aug. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a FAMILY's story. But what a family! Told candidly and honestly in my opinion; warts and all. I felt like I grew up in Dublin and then moved to Fort Worth and watched the city and my family prosper, meet challenges, experience heart-break and other words a great account of what all families go through. I love golf and have had a life-long appreciation of Ben Hogan, but this book goes way beyond golf.
The complex time and life of Ben Hogan I knew about shows up to be twice as complex. 6 Dec. 2014

Wow, what a story. It is naturally a onesided description of the Hogans but nevertheless it's a dimension of a part of golf history that no one new anything about. I am glad the book was written. It does not end here I hope. Let's hang on to Ben Hogan's legacy. To get five stars you need to be a professional writer.
