Even if you are not an avid golfer, Hiaasen writes a very amusing book that makes you laugh out loud about his golf antics.

My wife gave me this book as a gift and I made it through about 340 days of the author's "journal" of golf hacking.  While I respect his right to inject his left leaning politics into his writing I really think it took a lot from the book.  It was at that point that I closed it up and relegated it to the goodwill box.  That said this book starts out being sort of numerous if you're a golfer but, it quickly became mundane and repetitious and The political bent gave me the excuse I needed to put it down and move on to something worth my precious time.

Carl Hiaasen's THE DOWNHILL LIE is a quick-moving, witty book about one man's attempted re-emergence into the sport of golf. As a hacker myself, much of what Hiassen wrote about rang true, and I found myself laughing out loud more than once at the author's blunderings about the links. Not only is the book funny, but there is an underlying theme about the importance of spending time together, whether it be between friends or between father and son. It's also very easy to read, with plenty of chapter breaks and a mix between longer essays and quick journal entries. Not an award winner per say, but a great gift for someone who doesn't take golf too seriously!
