  1. Required F ing ReadingDead Solid Perfect was a masterwork when my dad tossed it on my bed, which happened to sit 45 yards from the 17th tee on the north course of Turf Valley Country Club in roughly 1976 Dan Jenkins is an original wit, a sports writing sage, and a literary hero.I downloaded the book to reread a scene so that I can recall it in front of a large crowd of people next month in Seattle And I caught myself laughing hard while trying not to cry as I reread the damn thing all the way to [...]


  2. This is quite possibly the funniest novel I have ever read Dan Jenkins, a former columnist for Playboy and the New York Times has a style all his own With curse words per page than any other novel while talking about a guy on the professional golf tour, Jenkins makes an already laughable lifestyle absolutely ridiculous Another easy, very quick read yet I have read this book four times So funny.


  3. While I was reading this book, there were a couple of times that I just had to put it down and roar with laughter It is absolutely hilarious For every golfer who ever played Goat Hills.


  4. As enjoyable a beach read as you ll find Jenkins characters are profane and a little off kilter, but the wild setup of Kenny Puckett s life rings true, and it s about as funny a book as you re ever going to find.



  5. This was a really fun, quick read Jenkins writing is mostly hilarious, definitely not politically correct, but also surprisingly good While the book is about a golf pro playing in the US Open, Jenkins brings all sorts of other topics into the story, and none are spared his sarcasm Golf, love, life, Texas, and gambling all receive hilarious treatments And while a lot of the book is poking fun at things and people, the overall feeling of the book is not cynical The main character is well written a [...]


  6. If you don t smile often and occasionally catch yourself laughing out loud when reading Dan Jenkins as he brings life to his characters like Kenny Lee Puckett, then you re in the wrong section of the library.No one has nor likely will anyone ever bring so much fun to satire of our games and those especially Texans who play them Dead Solid Perfect, like his other novels, is just fun than sometimes I think ought to be allowed.


  7. Clearly a book written in a different era, and certainly not for everyone I listened to this while packing up my house, which it was perfect for Some of the language is 100% offensive as I said, writing of a different era , and that is coming from me The story is fun and silly, and the characters are all unlikable in their own way Entertaining, if you can get around the use of several offensive words used repeatedly.


  8. I would have enjoyed this if it focused on the golf I didn t really like any of the characters and the juvenile humor got old pretty quickly It was entertaining enough to read in the airport, but I was happy when it was over.


  9. I cannot remember who recommended this book to me It s an interesting tale once you get past the language Being a fan of The Colonial and having heard the stories of the antics from the 1970s, made it interesting Otherwise, I m not sure I would have liked it.


  10. Hmm well I didn t even read the first page b c I picked it up for a little blurb and found this totally not my kind of book Too foul and attempting to be funny about a game I care nothing about I must be careful about getting book recommendations from talk show hosts in the future.



  11. Some minor humor and golf references, but mostly vulgar sexual content and violence of rednecks against minorities dnf







  12. A quick, comic, fairly raunchy novel about a golfer from Fort Worth who finds himself leading the U.S Open while in the midst of various personal crises.




  13. Far better than the movie adaptation, save for a very hot and young Corinne Bohrer starring as one of Puckett s female interests.



  14. Didn t compare to Missing Links by Rick Reilly in my opiniont a waste of time, but nothing overly memorable either I was slightly disappointed.



  15. Best golf book I ve read ever And have read many Never have read a fictional golf story so funny with great characters Dan Jenkins has written a timeless golf infused masterpiece.



  16. Hilarious book You will find yourself laughing out loud numerous times It has some great golf lingo as well but you do not even have to like golf to love this book Great read
