Format: Hardcover
In this book, Bob Hope chronicles many of his experiences on the Golf Course, with such people as Gerald Ford, Bing Crosby, etc. Although Hope's marvelous sense of humor comes through in the book, there are many other works by Hope that are far more personal and fascinating pertaining to Bob Hope himself. I would recommend that you purchase this book only if you love Golf as well as Bob Hope.

I probably should have posted this review here instead of commenting on the previous review.
________________

I definitely agree that if you love Bob Hope and golf as I do then this book is for you. There are many, many wonderful black and white pictures too numerous for me to name. A few that comes to mind is Sam Snead, Joe Louis on the golf course, Jackie Gleason, Gerald Ford, Jack Nicklaus, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope at different ages, Bing Crosby, Dwight Eisenhower, Forrest Tucker, Dorthy Lamour and many, many others. Just the pictures of these famous people is a treasure.

Now the bonus is that there is an index of ALL of the people whose picture is in the book at some point. So I guess the real value of this book would be to someone about 40 years or older who know of the celebrities that are in the book and can appreciate history and nostalgia.

However, I am referring to the hardcopy and not the paperback. I haven't seen a copy of the paper back and the paper may not be as crisp as the ones in the hardcopy which may affect how the photos appear.

I knew, as everyone knows, that Bob Hope was famous and also knew, as everyone knows, that he knew a lot of famous people but this book is like Golf Digest's "Top 100 Golf Courses You'll Never Play". Apparently Bob didn't know anyone unimportant.
