This is a remarkably honest account of perhaps the most hard-working golfer of all time. The book reveals the truth about one of the most secretive and unapproachable golfers of the 20th century. Sampson's prose explains the possible causes of Hogan's strange but successful life and charts the rise of Hogan through the early years and his recovery after his car crash. The book contains untold interviews with Hogan and uses interviews Niklaus, Palmer, Nelson and Snead to gain a broad persective of Hogan. This is the only book I know which contains enough information about Hogan to be classed as a biography. But don't take it from me; an out-of-form Steve Jones was given this book in 1996 and was so engrossed that he read it all in one night. The next week, he won the US Open. Enough said.
