[Reading] ➶ The Secret of Golf: The Story of Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus ➽ Joe Posnanski – Bilb-weil.de

I purchased this book for a gift I haven t obviously read the book However I was very disappointed with the quality of the publication.The hardback cover is fine but the page look like they have been cut with a hand saw and not professionally guillotined.I only opened the box in December, a week before Christmas, although it was delivered in November.There s probably no time now to replace before 25th Dec Very disappointed in quality considering price of book. Do You Want To Be Great Tom Watson The First Time They Met, At An Exhibition Match In , Tom Watson Was A Year Old High School Student, And Jack Nicklaus, At , Was Already The Greatest Golfer In The World Though They Shared Some Similarities They Were Both Midwestern Boys Who Had Learned How To Play Golf At Their Fathers Country Clubs They Differed In Many Ways Nicklaus Played A Game Of Consummate Control And Precision Watson Hit The Ball All Over The Place Nicklaus Lacked Charm And Theatrics, And He Was Thoroughly Despised By Most Golf Fans Because He Had Displaced The Popular Arnold Palmer As King Of The Golf World Watson Was One Of Those Arnold Palmer Fans Yet Over The Next Years, Their Seemingly Divergent Paths Collided As They Battled Against Each Other Again And Again For A Place At The Top Of The Sport And Drove Each Other To Ever Soaring Heights Of Accomplishment Spanning From That First Match Through The Duel In The Sun At Turnberry In To Watson S Near Miraculous Victory At Turnberry As He Approached , And Informed By Interviews With Both Players Over Many Years, The Secret Of Golf Is Joe Posnanski S Intimate Account Of The Most Remarkable Rivalry And Eventual Friendship In Modern Golf gave it as a gift the content is reportedly great says the person i gave it to , but the paper quality was really poor and felt like a cheap copy rather than a sturdy book that will last Good book with some good insight of two all time greats.To the ignorant 1 reviews this type of finish on a book is a mark of quality in the US IT is an expensive book binding. Bought this book for my brother s 60th in a few days As mentioned by another reviewer, I didn t believe it would happen to me , the front of the pages look as if they have been cut with a hacksaw Rough and uneven Will feel embarrassed to give it to my brother as it looks like a bootleg copy Not worth the price, Pity there is no way to give seller feedback to but if there wasI d say there was no quality control If there was then this wouldn t happen twice to 2 of the 3 verified purchasers. Truly fascinating A great read. This is a brilliant book Posnanski brings the story of these greats triumphs, lows and enduring friendship to life and you can t help but admire their steel and character the you discover about them.
