"It's a magnificent book. The way it's presented, the content, the things the authors discovered and put in it, the ideas, the pictures, the quotes, it's absolutely stunning, really amazing." Peter Alliss

A must have for any student of the game and indeed anyone interested in getting a real insight into how to think and read the game, from club, to course to card. The first book a golfer should pack for a golf vacation or a long weekend.

From the authors of <a href="">The Bible of Golf</a> ISBN 9780956954404 comes a remastered tour companion volume. Over a period of four years journalists and artists, Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman interviewed, researched and assembled a picture of a unique and great game. Its roots, its highs and lows, how it's played and the direction it's heading in the future.

During the journey around the world they gained the thoughts and wisdom of the game's legends, the great players, caddies, psychologists, biomechanics, course architects, course owners, thought leaders, association heads, golf authors and those in the media and beyond - all of whom are members of the broad church known as golf.

"This book, like its very big brother, The Bible of Golf, covers every aspect of what golf is, and I think that is a wonderful thing to have achieved. It is impressive because the authors have attacked the subject from so many angles. It weighs heavily on the mental aspect of the game, which I particularly like. Golf is about passion, integrity, skill, a sense of humour, as well as a willingness to explore and learn. All of which this book covers." Frank Christian

Lined with great interviews, hilarious stories and quotes, Golf in 18 Chapters takes the reader on a tour from the glint in the eye of a child finding the game for the first time to the very top professionals, caddies and coaches explaining the mechanics of the player under tournament pressure. From the history of the game, to walking the course and understanding how to make the most of it, this book covers it all with thought provoking style, satirical humour and intuitive expertise. Guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any golfer and perhaps take a shot or two off their scorecard.

"It is such an unusual book in many ways because the history in it finishes in about 1938 or around that point, but the quality and everything about it is amazing. For a book on golf, of interest and quality, I've never seen a nicer one. It's an amazing book." Peter Alliss
