About the Author:

Thomas Boswell was born in Washington, DC, and received a degree in English from Amherst College in 1969. He is a well-known sports columnist at The Washington Post. His has written several sports and recreation books, including Game DayThe Heart of the OrderStrokes of GeniusWhy Time Begins on Opening Day, and How Life Imitates the World Series.

From Library Journal:

Washington Post journalist and columnist Boswell is most noted for his writings on baseball, but he has covered numerous sports, and his golf articles have appeared in Golf magazine and Golf Digest . Not a formal historian of golf such as Herbert Warren Wind, he is more a journalistic historian dealing in small, brilliant cameo shots and broad canvas word paintings. His humorous subtleties are unparalleled, as is his portrait of "The Golden Bear," Jack Nicklaus. Anyone who has played or followed the golf game in the slightest will find it difficult to set aside this most entertaining and informative book. Not only his subjects, but Boswell as well, create "strokes of genius." A definite purchase for sports collections. Eugene J. Millich, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., La Crosse
