Rated 1 star for false advertising, poor journalism, poor investigation, poor argumentation, and poor scholarship. Theres not enough room here to critique all the specifics of this book, so Ill get right to the heart of things (if youre interested in a more detailed critique, check out Robert M.

This was the book that taught me how to write lucidly and wittily about sports, which was what I did to buy groceries during my twenties. I would sit down and reread a chapter of Jenkins and then try to recreate the nonchalant rhythm in whatever I was writing about golf or ski racing or backgammon or polo or cricket. Somewhere in my top dresser drawer I have Jenkins autograph, scored for me by my brother along one of the fairways at a long ago U.S. Open at Winged Foot.
