I also found some of the anecdotes were repeated from previous books. It's a little annoying when you start reading a paragraph and you know EXACTLY what's coming next.
Having said that, this book was still worthwhile and I'm glad I took the time to read it. It's a nice recap on the 2003 major season, when four "first timers" won the biggest prizes in golf. The book works even better as time goes by, as you realise what happened to the dreams of the players in the years after their victory, or in the cases of the runners-up, near misses.
