A sideways glance at our obsession with the game,
This review is from: Why We Golf (Paperback)Looking for a gift for the golfer in your life which he or she will actually *like*?
Or are you a player looking for some light holiday reading, or a winter "fix" when you can't get to the course?
Then look no further.
This book will satisfy all of these needs, and many more.
Mr Staley takes a wry look at the game of golf, leaving no stone unturned in his attempt to answer the age-old question which has baffled golfers and spouses alike.
Why do we bother with a game which can cause so much frustration?
It's a question without an easy answer, but you'll enjoy the ride as the author shines a light into some of the lesser-explored areas of the golfer's psyche. Although it touches on all of the "big questions" of our time, the author's conversational style ensures it's a pleasure to read. Politics, philosophy and mythology are explored with the same gentle irreverence Mr Staley brings to his golf game.
From the sports fan to the bookworm, this book will appeal to most golfers...and it'll make them think, laugh, and smile in equal proportion. Which can only be a good thing.
Buy it, read it, enjoy it.
