A good, quick read, but after reading so many books about golf, I found this one a little disappointing; I guess because it's too short. The tournaments go by so quickly that there isn't the amount of golfing drama I've become used to. Also, Nicklaus and Hogan never really come alive in this book. Part of the reason for that, I'm suppose, is because both men are enigmas.

Palmer, however, comes off the page. He's certainly the kind of lovable, somewhat neurotic, guy we can all root for. He is one of us.

Finally, from an historical perspective, the book is a good capsule of the summer when, because of TV and Palmer's charisma, professional golf changed forever.
