Review

Altshuler takes a rollicking trip across the course, mixing a lot of fun into a long list detailing the dos and don'ts of golf play --Publishers Weekly

Golf Foreplay isn't just a new book with a catchy title and a sassy cover. It's got some substance to go with that style and tude. --Jason Scott Deegan, worldgolf.com

Golf jokes tee off each chapter and range from amusing to side-spitting. Despite all the laughs, this is a useful book that looks seriously at the game. --Publishers Weekly - April 18, 2011

A morning DJ from Maine takes us on a rollicking trip across the links, mixing a golfbag-load of fun into a seemingly endless list of what can and cannot be done while playing the game. Laughs aside, this is a highly useful book that looks at golf from a fundamentally reverential perspective --AARP.org - April, 2011

There are literally thousands of golf books on the market today. Books that analyze every aspect of the swing, books about golfers, and books about where to play. Golf Foreplay fills an important niche for golfers at all levels; the beginner to the touring pro. It covers every aspect of the game except how to hit the ball and score.
Ken Altshuler has done a terrific job in making what could be a boring dull read into an entertaining fun and at times self deprecating look at the game we all love.
I highly recommend the book for anyone interested in the game of golf.

Format: Paperback
From the title to the final page Ken Altshuler has created a must read book focusing how to have fun playing golf.
Even after playing golf for 35 years I found so many insights and facts about golf that I couldn't wait for the next chapter. Ken makes it easy for the new and veteran golfer to understand the rules of golf. Each chapter begins with a laugh out loud joke to set the stage of what you are about to read and something to share the next time you play.
If you are new to golf or looking for a way to entice your spouse,child or firend to take up the game, Golf Foreplay is the perfect gift. The reader will have confidence and insight when playing with more experienced golfers.
Ken covers the basics of the rules and most especially the etiquette of golf which will miminze those uncomfortable moments.
The boook is sprinkled with facts, pictures and antedotes to support the more complex aspects of the game so you can see examples of the rules being explained in words.
Unlike most golf books trying to re-engineer your swing Golf Foreplay only seeks to inform and entertain you to have a more enjoyable experience on the golf course.
This book is a great gift for any occasion and for anyone! Ken's love of the game and great sense of humor is the heart and soul of Golf Foreplay!

Format: Paperback
Golf Foreplay is a fun, informative book that explains all the basics of the game in a light, easily digestible manner. For a short book (just over 200 pages), Altshuler packs in a lot of information on a wide range of topics, even some on history and golf organizations. Rules and etiquette are a main focus. The sections which may have been the most beneficial to me include tournaments and betting games. I'm still a novice, and no one has explained these to me before.

Each chapter begins with a golf joke, setting the stage for fun as well as education. The illustrations are great, as well as the "trivia breaks" like all-time records Topics range from which club to use when, how to drop, scoring rules, and what not to wear. The layout, chapters, and sub-heading are easy to follow. Altshuler is highly entertaining, and no one who enjoys golf would be bored by this book. Some of the best advice he gives to the reader comes in the last paragraph where he reminds us that golf is a game, and games are supposed to be fun. Enjoy!
