2.0 out of 5 stars Bogey, July 2, 2007
This review is from: Tales from Q School: Inside Golf's Fifth Major (Hardcover)
By Matthew W. Moran

John Feinstein is likely the most popular and widely read sportswriter of this generation. His 1986 debut book "A Season On The Brink" is the best selling sports book of all time, and Feinstein has followed that up with twenty more titles. His most recent book, "Tales From Q School," focuses on professional golf's infamous qualifying tournament, with a special emphasis placed on the 2005 tournament.

Feinstein's reputation as a top-notch journalist is well-deserved. He is also a columnist for "The Washington Post" and a regular commentator for NPR, having become renowned for his erudite opinions on the world of sports. However, it won't take more than a quick perusal of "Tales From Q School," to realize that Feinstein seems to be resting on his laurels. The book reads more like a rambling magazine piece than a well-structured story. The trademark Feinstein anecdotes are here aplenty, but the story lacks a narrative flow and even repeats itself at times.

John Feinstein's weakest effort is still decent enough that "Tales From Q School" might make a good gift for the golf lover in your family. However, this recent release doesn't nearly compare with some of the author's classics.
