Thoroughly well-researched, and entertaining in the way you presented so many fabulous quotes - many of which I've read through the years. Quotes that stick to you, and make you think.
I think of the great golfers I have met - luckily so, and have been so lucky to hear from them. You have done a great job combining their thoughts - through their unique personalities. It's a great game!

This book contains over 40+ quotes and 90 references from members of the World Golf Hall of Fame. You’ll be hard pressed to find information about Alex Morrison, ‘Wild Bill’ Mehlhorn, Henry Picard, Joe Kirkwood, Jack Burke Jr. and Bobby Locke in any other book. From Greg Norman, you'll learn the true meaning of the game of golf. From Old Tom Morris you'll learn where to aim your chin. From Alistar MacKenzie his golf course design beliefs. You'll have the opportunity to step back in time and learn what the masters of the game thought or more importantly. . .what they felt. Between the pages, you'll find the philosophies of four legendary instructors. These nuggets of information are still applicable today.
Thank you s-o-o-o much for your Inside Out book. First, you appropriately
write about talented/gifted/historical golfers during your era, anecdotes,
detailed contributions regarding teaching/coaching knowledge
and skills sets professional golfers must possess to be a competitive
world class golfer. Thank you for preserving your personal timeless
contribution to the great game of golf - the greatest game in the world.
Well done! Congratulations!

As a golfer of 60 years and having read over a hundred different books regarding golf, I put Mr. I.B. Nobody in my top five. He combines a blend of wonderful instructions and creative storytelling.

This book is a historical weave of golf lessons from the masters of days gone by. Very interesting reading. . . quotes about the fundamentals from Hagen, Jones, Sarazen, Snead, Hogan, Byron Nelson, Palmer, Nicklaus & over 40 World Golf Hall of Fame members. Good stuff.

When you read it, have a club handy because it's the kind of book
you go through slowly, practicing a little as you read. He pulls from all the great players and teachers and his own insights. It's golf from the ground up and there is a lot of history, too.
Susan Churchill - Aptos, CA
Your book is great. You did a fantastic job both with the research and stating your comments. It's a genuine treasure, whether the reader is into golf or not. One can't put it down. So much good stuff. And that it's a non-profit somehow adds to its worth.

There's not a golf book in publication that has this type of information emanating from the best players and legendary instructors in the history of the game between its pages. It's a smorgasbord of quotes from the game's best. For those that learn visually, the pictures and diagrams alone will give you a greater understanding of the golf swing.
If you're a fan of golf history you'll enjoy this book.
