I’m not a golfer, but I really liked this book. The charm of the book is that it takes us through the lives of three men, and a host of lesser characters, and shows us how the growth of golf in China shaped their lives. … Three engaging characters amid the ambiguity of changing regulations, and whether it was legal to build new courses or not. … You will learn a lot about China in the process… what it is like dealing with an all-powerful Party whose machinations are secret. And yet, one where if enough people protest, you can’t do anything, even if you have all of the permits in place. … This was an enjoyable book to read, and I think most people would learn something from it. … This is a great book. It will make a great gift to friends of yours who are golfers.
