Geoff Shackelford Gives "The Big Miss" A Glowing Review

Big praise:

However, in time The Big Miss will be considered a landmark tome in the already crowded bookshelf of classic golf books. Had Jack Grout or O.B. Keeler written a similar warts-and-all book about their days beside the legends whose lives they helped shape, or had Ben Hogan relied on a book-writing swing instructor for “coaching,” we’d be richer for insights that no “authorized” book comes close to delivering.  More importantly, without The Big Miss, aspiring golfers would not have had a powerful motivational tool to make themselves better players and even better human beings.
