What the critics said about My Life In and Out of the Rough: 'Daly's life story is a rollercoaster ride on the vices of life' Daily Mirror 'Brilliantly explicit' Guardian 'This is no melodramatic self-pitying memoir with a saccharine message of healing with a tidy epiphany!Daly is an unpolished man of loose ends, of addictions unconquered, of flaws unhemmed, of a life's journey in stop-and-go traffic' New York Times --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

John and his co-writer have pulled off the trick of writing a golf instruction book that is an amusing read and will not send you to sleep within the first few pages or require deep study and a Ph.D in "golf speak". The tone of the book is very chatty and you can almost hear the Big Man talking as you read: it captures his patois and personality really well. Serious students of all things golf may not find much here they do not already know (and I know as I am one of those sad people ...) but honestly it is as close to a good read as a golf instructional could ever get. The subject matter is very wide-ranging, covering preparation, a little technical swing stuff, course management, psychology etc. in bite-sized short chapters. Although strictly speaking the material will be familiar to most seasoned golfers, it is put across in a such a vivid and down-to-earth way that is convincing and motivating. By contrast to most golf instruction which is pretty soporific and requires hard work and study, this is a breeze and great fun to read.

John Daly has written this book without the usual paralysis of analysis that many golf book authors use. This makes the book interesting and enjoyable to read. So, I would put the book in the "fun to read" category. Whether the contents of the book will improve your golf game is for each reader to determine.

I like John Daly; how could you not? He seems like a down-to-earth, good guy that doesn't take himself or those around him too seriously. I've been given several books on improving my golf game, mainly from buddies who have to suffer my annual promise that I'm giving up the game for good, but this is by far the most enjoyable of those I've read. I can't say it improved my game but it did help to put things into perspective. I have realized that what I really enjoy about golf is just getting outside and spending time in the company of friends (and a few beers or more makes it pretty much a perfect day). Now that's golf, "My own damn way!" Thanks John.

This is a good book for golf lovers of nearly any skill level. The book has just the right amount of humor to make it a fun read, while still giving a lot of good advice, from preparation to completion of the round. Daly's writing style is enjoyable and his unique character shines through. I would recommend this book for any amateur golfer.

John Daly is by far my favorite golfer of all time!

I've read this book as well as "My life in and out of the rough" and highly recommend them both. This is certainly a quick read with many tips on improving your golf game, some being very technical while others are just funny (but still useful). There are also recommendations on different ways to play/gamble/have fun with the game as well.

This book is a great follow up, or starter read for anyone who would like to get to know John Daly as a golfer or as a person. I found this book extremely well written and a joy to read. It actually had my laughing out loud at some of the amusing content.

I recommend this book to any sports/golf fan, anyone who would like to improve their golf game without putting to much effort into it, or anyone who has ever heard of John and would like to hear about some of his accomplishments and failures. It is a great book that should be in any golfers book collection!

Knowing I had followed the career of Daly before he became something of a train wreck. a good friend recommended I buy this book. Sensing reluctance he promised to pay for it if I was disappointed. When I flipped it open it was not at all what I expected. Folks, what John Daly has here is, essentially, not only golf his damn way, but a respectful knock-off of Harvey Penick's Little Red Book.
Daly's tips and suggestions give evidence that beneath all the reckless buffoonery lies a talented player. Lots of good to very, very good tips and suggestions on how to approach and play the game.
Pick up a copy and I'm betting you too will discover the unexpected.

I was reading this book in the bookstore and found a lot of good information....Before reading the book I was hitting my driver only 200 yards with a major slice and after reading it....believe it or not....I was hitting my all of clubs way further...3 wood was going 240-250, 7 iron usually went 155 yards but now 165-170, 8 iron about 160, 9 iron 145-155, I crushing the ball, besides the belly turn the whole mentality aspect of the game he discusses made a major difference in hitting more accurate shots...I have now bought the book after seeing the effects on the golf course
