Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Moe & Me, Lorne Rubenstein gracefully interweaves his personal golfing journey with the life and playing career of Moe Norman. . . . Moe & Me is a satisfying addition to the lore on Canada's golfing genius." —National Post (April 7, 2012)


"In the hands of veteran Canadian golf scribe Lorne Rubenstein, Norman's life comes to the fore with respect and admiration." —GolfWeek (April 13, 2012)


"Through his personal accounts of Norman, Rubenstein paints an intimate portrait of a complex man." —GolfWorld (April 2012)


"For the last three decades, the only swings that PGA Tour players talked about with respect were Ben Hogan's and Moe Norman's. Lorne Rubenstein's sad and joyous book now guarantees that the pros will be talking about Moe for another thirty years." —Bradley S. Klein, Architecture editor, Golfweek


"Lorne Rubenstein grew up following in the fairy dust scattered by the incomparable Norman, and his lovely memoir of their friendship, Moe & Me, will move you by its deep understanding of this uniquely colorful man and his solitary genius." —James Dodson; author; American Triumvirate, Final Rounds, and The Modern Age of Golf


"Lorne Rubenstein depicts Moe Norman compassionately, from his quirky personality to his unusual swing. I count myself fortunate that I saw Moe with my own eyes, and that now, through Lorne's sensitive portrait, I can see him again." —Ben Crenshaw, 1984 and 1995 Masters champion


"Lorne spent a lot of time with Moe, and there's no better person to share his uniqueness. Golfers will enjoy reading about Moe and the people and game he influenced." —Mike Weir, 2003 Masters champion


"Lorne Rubenstein is one of the game's great historians as well as being a wonderful journalist. Moe Norman is arguably one of the most interesting men to play professional golf, and Lorne has captured him brilliantly." —Sean Foley, swing coach for Tiger Woods, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and many others

First off I am not a big book reader but if it has to do with Moe Norman I will do my best getting my hands on it. The book is not a lesson book on how to swing like Moe but if you want an understanding of who Moe Norman was I think he did a real nice respectable job on it I enjoyed it immensely. It does add to knowing who Murray "Moe" Norman really was also it was possibly the best that I read on Moe. Yes there are story's that we all have heard of but some with a few twist that I even thought could have been the reason for other player actions and one of them seems to have been true. I will leave that for you to read. I am glad and would buy the book again. I am well pleased with it. I am so glad Lorne Rubenstein who is the Author of this book titled once again "Moe and Me". He kind of fills in a lot of the blanks on the Moe Norman story's that all of us have heard while we have been following Moe for these years 10 yrs for me. At first you will learn how and where Lorne met Moe or as he puts it "when he encountered Moe" for the first time when he was 13 yrs old, way back the the early 60's. So now this is where he starts and goes though all the years he knew Moe all the way to Moe's death. He shares story's from friends and family of Moe's. So again if you like Moe you will Like this book. Can't go wrong. John (Swingmachine).

Getting the authors unique perspective really tied all of the other Moe Norman tributes together. A very interesting man in a very demanding sport and environment . I really enjoyed this book and if know anything about Moe Norman you will too.

Lorne Rubenstein is probably the only person capable of writing a book of this quality about Moe Norman.
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.

Lorne has done a superb book on Canada's best male golfer on the 20th century, Murray Moe Norman. I played maybe 500 games with Moe and feel Lorne probably gets closest to the real Moe. Canada's greatest golf writer nails Canada's best and most unique player. A must read, better if you read Feeling of Greatness first.

Anyone who ever met Moe Norman or saw him hit a ball never forgot him. Moe was unique in so many ways; one of the most unusual golfers ever. With his exaggerated, wide, stance and his arms at full stretch, he whacked ball after ball as straight as a die. "You'd pay me a million dollars - a million dollars - to be able to do that!" He'd challenge onlookers belligerently. The same people he would shun - if they ever approached him anywhere outside a golfing environment.
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.
-Ivan Morris.

he would have been a world beater.

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.

Having played with More on 3 or 4 different occasions back in the 70's, it jogged my memory of the wonderful time spent with him. We were paired together at some of the PGA Florida winter tour. Thanks for a great read about More!
