Golf 365 days: A History by Robert Sidorsky a truly unique book
Why do I love Robert Sidorsky’s book, Golf 365 days: A History?
Let me count the ways.
1, The format is awesome. Really. I can’t give it enough kudos for its small stature half the size of a tradition book. Yet it’s sturdy enough to be a showcase coffee table book. Sidorsky first debuted the format in Golf Courses Around the World: 365 Days. They both are must-reads, if you ask me. They’re small enough to carry on vacations and filled with enough information to keep readers interested.
2, Yes, back to the format. The book is based on the premise of a calendar. Readers can turn one page a day and get their golf fact or story that wows their friends the next time they’re stuck on the tee behind a slow foursome. It’s too much book to digest in a month, but for an entire year, it’s perfect.
3, Each page is a trip down memory lane. Each one-page feature and opposite page photo is a highlight from the game, whether it’s a course, player, moment or another tidbit. Again, they are only one page each, so they’re short and punchy.
4, At the price $29.95, it’s half the price of most coffee table books that are nearly 750 pages.
5, Like most golf books, the pictures are sharp enough to make golfers salivate.
