One of, possibly the most, interesting golf book I have read. If you are interested in golf, beyond your own swing, it makes fascinating reading. The thinking behind golf design is clearly explained. There is something of a lament for the more natural style of the 'golden age' architects of the early 20th century, but there is also a constructive attempt to show how their less aggressive and more artistic thinking can be replicated in modern golf course architecture. Highly recommended, particularly as the kindle version is much more reasonably priced.
