Only a small coterie of trusted friends were made welcome into Moe's life. One of few who got close to Moe on a regular basis was Lorne Rubenstein, a vastly experienced, golf writer who happens to have a Masters Degree in Psychology. For years, Lorne wanted to write a book about Moe but it took him a long time to complete the project in a way that would be worthy of Moe's memory. He has certainly managed to do it - it's a first class read. With 'thousands' of golf books under my belt, I ought to know! There's no gossip to be found in Moe & Me - just a meditation on the mysteries of the mind, a game, and the intersection of the two.
Rubenstein is not just a hack regurgitating gossip about a golfer. He studied psychology, knew Norman since he was a kid and he's a writer not prone to exaggeration or sensationalism.
This is an honest, in-depth, warts-and-all study of one of the most puzzling players in the history of golf. No one will ever come as close to understanding and explaining Moe.
Well worth reading.
A simple book that I couldn't put down. It helps that I'm an avid golfer and have heard his name forever.
Just what the book should be.
I love that Snead was scared of him.
