Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

From a distance, Weekley seems like a charming eccentric, a homespun golfer once knocked out by an orangutan in boxing gloves at a Florida county fair. But by book's end, Weekley's charm runs thin. He tells of how he flunked out of "turfgrass school," worked three years in a chemical plant before starting to gamble—or as he describes it, "hustling on golf." Weekley soon went from betting his own money to being bankrolled by gamblers who bet as much as ,000 on his matches. After winning his first small professional tournament, Weekley devoted himself to making the PGA Tour, earning his tour card in 2002. He soon dropped off the tour, but returned in 2007 to win his first PGA event and then star on the 2008 Ryder Cup team. In addition to golf stories, Weekley shares at length details of dim-witted mishaps, including a 20-page chapter entitled "Finishing Number Two" that focuses on eventful bowel movements. Some readers may find this appealing, but for many it will be Boo much.(Mar.)

Review

"Boo Weekley is one of the true characters in the game of golf. We have become good friends while competing against each other on the PGA Tour. Our personalities are quite different, but we share a love for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing.  This book offers an insight into Boo the man, and very few things are funnier than Boo being Boo." --Davis Love III
 
"I became a fan of Boo Weekley because of his candid personality as a PGA golfer. It was clear he was from a different mold than most. Through different channels, we eventually struck up a pretty solid friendship. He’s an honest individual and always willing to help others in need. He takes life at face value and enjoys every minute. I figured one day he’d put his crazy story in writing, so here it is. If you’re not a fan yet, you soon will be." 
--Dale Earnhardt Jr.
 
"If Boo could putt better, maybe he'd be able to get bigger celebrities to write quotes for his book. Either way, Git-R-Done and buy this book--it's a great read. Well worth my 20 minutes!!"
--Larry the Cable Guy

Extremely interesting book that holds your attention throughout. Many funny stories that kept me entertained. More than worth the price, for those that love golf and for those that just love down-to-earth humor.

Who knew life on the PGA Tour could be so amusing? Boo can get himself into some predicaments!!! I'm not a golfer but I love funny stories and this book is filled with them. In addition to the humorous tales, Boo also recounts many of the difficulties he has faced and how he has come through them. It's a great read. I highly recommend it!

Finally, a golf book about a real down to earth character. The PGA is full of silver spooned country club pro's -- not so with Boo Weekley. His book goes into detail about his middle class upbringing and being raised in the south. It is written in a way that the reader truly feels he/she is having a beer with Boo as he tells his story. It is honest and very refreshing. True Boo is very easy to read and moves along at a nice leisurely pace. If you are a fan of Boo Weekley or if you are looking for something light to read, then this book is for you. Make it a strong 4 1/2 stars.

This book is chucked for of hillarious Boo stories told in way only Boo could pull off.

He is Jethro in Footjoys.

Golfers and non golfers alike will enjoy this book which is a quick read.

One can only hope that Mr. Weekley continues to accumulate whacky stories that will fill another True Boo Two book.
