About the Author

Joshua Piven is the co-author of all the books in The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series. He lives in Philadelphia, where he's been working to bring his handicap down to double digits. He plans to win all four majors in a single year.

David Borgenicht, co-author of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series, lives in Philadelphia with his wife and has been known to act as her caddy-or at least he carries her bags and follows her around a lot.

James Grace, a life-long golf lover, held a golf club shortly after birth and was an early master of miniature golf. To this day he can perfectly time the windmill. He lives in Boston. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

My husband is a mediocre (at best) golfer. This book caught my eye and after reading for just 5 minutes I was laughing so hard I nearly peed my pants! Each page just made me laugh harder. I have shared it with two girlfriends, whose husbands are also links warriors, and they laughed just as hard. I can't wait to give it to my husband and father-in-law on Father's Day. Be sure to check out the sections on "Curing Your Addiction" (complete with sketch of man sleeping with his golfclubs) and "How to Survive a Bird Attack" (with sketch of seagulls attacking golfer's head). I am telling you, this book is a complete riot! If you need a good laugh - or 30 minutes' worth- this will do the trick!

Survival Rule #1 Watch Where You're Driving and that doesn't just mean at the tee off! Like all the Worst-Case Scenario Books in the series, this one has the familiar, easy to read layout with step-by-step instructions that are brief but informative. Nice how this sport edition gives a few words of advice on playing the game and explains how the official rules of golf apply in the unique situations, plus highlights a few guidelines to keeping good golf etiquette, which is all helpful for preventing confusion and heated debate among players.
The topic is divided into just a few chapters called: Bad Lies, Equipment Disasters, Dangerous Animals and Golfing Emergencies. The scenarios covered range from how to retrieve a ball lost in the ball washer, retrieve a ball from a gopher hole, how to keep score without a pencil, how to spot a cheat, disarm an irate golfer, start a dead cart, stop a runaway cart or free a cart from a sand trap. How to prevent a club from flying out of your hand and how to retrieve a golf club or golf ball lodged in a tree [they recommend wearing a hard hat to protect your head during this operation, imagine that!]. How to drive with a putter or putt with a driver, how to survive if you run out of tees, how to treat a sprained ankle, a blister, poison ivy, sunburn, heatstroke or dehydration. How to deal with a brush fire, alligator, snake, rabid animal or an attack by birds, not to mention how to deal with a fashion emergency or recognize a golf addiction. There is even a little over view on gambling bets and some translation of golfspeak. Also advice is included for avoiding lighting strikes and tornados while you're outside in open areas.
This book is a riot and the illustrations are great, they add so much and they truly are hilarious.

I picked this book up for my parents as an afterthought and a joke (one avid golfer for life, mother just picking it up) and they LOVED it! Both sat down and read it straight through, laughing out loud and enjoying it. Now I wish I had saved it for the holidays!

When you see this book, you may think it will be a deeply discounted "remainder" in a month so why buy it? How wrong you would be! The authors cover a wide range of topics with expertise, creativity, and sometimes humor. This book will help you on the course and could actually save your life. Start to browse through it and you'll be hooked!

Mostly it's just a collection of things that should be common sense. Not really worth the time. If you must read it, just check it out of the library and you'll be done in ten minutes.
