    One thought on “Why Golf?: The Mystery of the Game Revisited”

    1. If you really love to play golf, this is a great book to read. The author attempts to unravel why the game has such appeal to so many people, despite being difficult to play well and impossible to master. He draws on Darwin, Freud, and the science of "evolutionary psychology" (who knew?) to explain our compulsion to play a game that creates way more frustration than happy success.

    2. I didn't expect I would like this book but found myself amused by the "mind of the golfer". I understood after reading this book why the game is so psychological and not as much about athletic skill. We all can win if the goal is right. So glad I took the time to read it.

    3. Just a very enjoyable book. Every golf enthusiast should read this. It gives a real perspective of the game for the duffer, like me. Very entertaining.
