Review

'Well done young man!' --Sam Torrance, BBC commentary during the Open at Turnberry

'Best sports book for Christmas' --The Independent

While the overwhelming majority of us would be content with the occasional miracle in a thousand efforts, the author went after 70 of them. Consecutively. Yes, the Ulsterman made it his mission to go from being unable to break 100, to breaking par in the space of a year. And not only that, but the self-avowed slob in his late thirties would do so while holding down a full-time job as well as bringing up a family. As Sam Torrance said when he heard of the project, 'Dream On!'. Thus the Scot gave Richardson his title, if not some extra incentive. --James Corrigan, Golf Correspondent, The Independent

'For golfers [John's] achievement is already being marvelled at and studiously picked over for any nugget of information that will help them improve. But whether you are a golfer or not, John's story is a lesson for life. It may be the cliche of all cliches but if you believe in something and work hard for it, then you can achieve it.' --Irish Times
