Reviews Going for the Green

Jeffrey Reed, who runs, has a nice plug for my Going for the Green book up on his site. Here’s a taste:

One of the things I admire about colleague Robert Thompson is his ability to ask the tough question. True, he sometimes pushes the wrong button, but its refreshing to see another golf writer not follow the herd like a lost sheep wandering the fairways of the Old Course.

Thompsons latest book offering, Going For The Green: On The Links with Canadas Business and Political Elite, reflects his honesty and gusto. Theres an old adage, ËœPlay a round of golf with someone and their true personality emerges. I only have to think back to my last round for proof of that theory, but thats a story for another day.

In, Going For The Green, Thompson proves that you can, indeed, learn more about someone from spending four hours together on the golf course than a week in the boardroom. Thompson is golf columnist for the National Post and a prolific freelancer, and was previously a staff reporter with the Post business and sports departments. He knows his wheeling and dealing, on and off the golf course, so the subject of this book is right up his alley.
