Reviews/Testimonials

George H. W. Bush said: “I’ve enjoyed many chuckles from this publication, and it’s in my golf bag, ready to go on the next outing. Who knows, maybe it will help to divert the competition.”

Rick Reilly of Sports Illustrated said: “Bobby, you are a sick person but a very funny writer. I love your book. Whatever you write next, I’m buying it. I am mentioning this book whenever and to whomever I can.

Donald – You’re Fired -Trump said: “It does put the game in perspective for all us hackers, and I enjoyed it immensely.”

Herb Kelleher, Chairman, Southwest Airlines said:“Bobby, I could sooner forget Confucius and Buddha than forget your book, which contains all of the elements necessary to succeed in life (not just golf) through cheating.”

Jerry Lavin, President, Pompeian, Chicago, said: “I have had the pleasure of playing golf for 50 years and baby, do I relate to this book…tears were streaming down my face … I plan to give this to all my golfing pals.”

Betty N. Mori, Mori Luggage and Gifts, Atlanta said: “We have been selling this book at a steady pace for almost a year now. It is immediately humorous to any golfer by the title alone, and is a good item to mix with our golfer gifts.”

Charles Albright, Arkansas Democrat Gazette said: “This is a must read … for certain golfers, those who are still as bad as they always were … so where does a golfer turn when his hope for victory, however ludicrous, depends entirely on finding an opponent who plays even sorrier? That’s where this book comes in”

Jimmy Skaggs, Murray Bros Caddy Shack, St. Augustine, FL, said: “I gotta tell ya, Bob, of anything we’ve ever had in our shop — maybe besides or along with our gopher head covers that we have for woods — we get the best response out of people who look at that book ….. everybody just laughs out loud. What a great book! And we’re glad we have it in the shop.”

Warren Cassell, President, Just Books Inc., Greenwich said: “Our number one pick for Mother’s and Father’s Day is still our top humor pick for under the golfer’s tee … the duffers in your life do not need red and green golf balls … or reindeer head-shaped club covers. What they need is HOW TO LINE UP YOUR FOURTH PUTT.”

Todd Willman said: “Your books for our company outing were a complete smash hit!!
The winners are talking about them, weeks after our June 15 event!”

Tom Ricci said: “Bob, we laughed our asses off at your book. It is too much fun. I would suspect that I am now your best PR guy. I am telling everyone about your book.”

Sam said: “Anyway, this is all to say that I think your book is just a complete double-eagle for understanding the true nature of the golf experience. It’s absolutely hilarious. How it escaped my attention [till now] I don’t know. There have been just a handful of books that I’ve read in my lifetime that I thought, “Damn, I should have thought of that!” (That’s not including the Harry Potter series, of course.) Yours is the newest on that short list. “

Timothy Conklin said: ”Thank you for the tickling of my soul. Somebody in my office sent me an email with the title’s of the chapters and I could not stop laughing. I thought it was a joke. I went to Barnes & Noble.com and saw that it was actually a book. I called Barnes & Nobel and they had no more in stock at their stores or warehouses. Me and buddy couldn’t stop laughing at the titles so I looked on line and found your website.

A Perfect Gift for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day — anytime, December 30, 2005
This is totally original. The chapter headings alone brought tears to my eyes. I have also used this book for golf outings, placing it in the “goodie bag.” Perfect.

Laughter From a Cape Cod Beach, May 1, 2004
“I settled in to read your book on a cool day at a Cape Cod Beach. I flipped to Chapter 6, burst out laughing, and tipped over my water bottle. Who would have ever “thunk” to just “Pick Up” when you’re in that much trouble. It kind of takes the edge off that ‘I hate this game, I hate this game’ mantra. This book is really terrific, especially Chapter 28 which can be adapted to many other events…’remain totally silent until your spouse decides to speak to you.’ Thank you for a hearty laugh…looking forward to the next book!”

Happy in Nashville, April 22, 2004
“I think your book is just a complete double-eagle for understanding the true nature of the golf experience. It’s absolutely hilarious. How it escaped my attention [until now] I don’t know. There have been just a handful of books that I’ve read in my lifetime that I thought, “Damn, I should have thought of that!” (That’s not including the Harry Potter series, of course.) Yours is the newest on that short list.

Thanks again for creating this obviously essential book, April 6, 2004

Perspective, March 9, 2004
Mr.Rusher’s view of golf and his fundamental understanding of the game is a wonderfully refreshing statement of the humor and pespective we should maintain toward life itself.In a world where we constantantly take ourselves far too seriously, it’s a great joy to take a moment with a book that makes you laugh out loud (even though you’re by yourself)!Kudos to Bobby Rusher for a thoroughly entertaining trip around the golf course and for making us pause long enough to keep life in proper focus.

Wisdom for the Pulpit, March 8, 2004
My husband, “Jon” would like to get and autographed copy of the book, “How to Line Up Your Fourth Putt.” How would I go about getting one? He has used a few reference in the pulpit for humor reasons….just loves the book.
Thanks, Karen Lanier

Escape the Snow and Laugh Out Loud, March 2, 2004
I am down here in St. Croix with some fellow golfers whose games are sorry indeed, and we found this gem after our second round. The best thing about this is it seems totally original–not a stolen ball or a flubbed chip in it. It is a laugh out loud riot and a perfect gift for Father’s Day and Christmas. I like “How To avoid the Water When You Lie 8 in the Bunker” the best.
