Format: Paperback
I have had the privilege of playing several rounds with Moe Norman over his long career. I have constantly marvelled at his extraordinary physical talent and brillant analytical golf mind. Lorne Rubenstein has captured the essence of the Moe the golfer as well as Moe the person. Both are very difficult to successfully characterize since Moe was such an enigmatic player and individual --- he often spoke in elliptical phrases about the swing or course management , such that many players never really undestood his thinking. However,Rubenstein , having had the opportunity to be Moe's friend over several decades, got to understand and appreciate his brillance as a shot-maker. Finally, there is now a 'definitive' biography of one of the most well-known, but least ( until now) understood golfers of our time.

Lorne Rubinstein does a great job reflecting on the unique life of one of Canada's golf icons. During an era of the country club elites, Moe Norman carved his own path. He obviously loved golf and had a unique savant kind of ability to play the game. Rubinstein's insightful book gives the reader a great perspective on the life and times in golf during the Moe Norman period and the difficulty he encountered due to his unique personality and his acceptance and/or reluctance to be accepted in to the golf mainstream. Moe has been recognized by many as one of the purest strikers of the ball. I watched him play once in Winnipeg and he certainly was a crowd gatherer and entertainer, and he could certainly hit the ball. As in all of Rubinstein's books, (George Knudson, Mike Weir, et al) he is very thorough and provides the reader with an enjoyable account of his subject.

Fantastic book! As a long time golfer and reader of many works by Lorne Rubenstein, I was totally engrossed with his latest book. Personally, I think it may me his best effort to date. He presents a carefully researched and sympathetic portrait of one of the great figures of Canadian golf. There is insight into Moe Norman on every page, which only a true friend who had spent many hours with him over many years could provide. Along the way, we also learn more about the author who has always been a passionate supporter of Canadian golf. The definitive work on Moe Norman. Lovely.........

What a great story of a very unusual man with a super natural gift of hitting golf shots. He makes each swing of the club effortless and gets the ball to where he wants it about 90% of the time. I'd be happy 50% of the time!!!
Way to go Moe you super ball striker!

Lorne Rubenstein is a very good writer and this book opens a whole world into the person Moe Norman was. As a ball striker and shot maker, Moe had few peers. His personality flaws however prevented him from becoming one of the great winners of his time.

Just finished this Rubenstein masterpiece. I had the great pleasure of meeting Moe many times and experiencing first-hand his miraculous abilities. Of course, I never "knew" Moe -- until now. To have a glimpse into what made an enigmatic and complicated character like Moe tick adds much-needed colour to the mythology that has surrounded him all these years.
I highly recomend this book to anyone interested in golf, in dealing with adversity, or simply in the human condition.

Moe was more complex then I believe most people would realize.I followed his career and the odd column by Lorne. I also saw him in person a couple of times. He acted strange but that only hid his real personality and intensity.

I was somewhat dissapointed in this book. I thought it would be more about some of Moe Norman feats...like hitting two golf balls175 yards and finding them in the fairway...touching...another proof of his accuracy. I thought the book could have been alot more humerous.
