There has never been a book about the inner workings of the golf business or its leading players from an insider’s point of view. In the Rough reads like a novel, but it could also be required reading in a business school. This book takes the reader on a ride through the author’s unusual professional career and what he discovered in the most revealing settings and scenes of the golf industry at its awkward and colorful best. Most of the events and incidents appearing here are firsthand accounts portraying a host of famous and colorful characters in both golf and the business world. The central characters in this book are Ben Hogan, one of the five best players of all time and a highly successful golf-equipment executive; Deane Beman, a star amateur and successful professional golfer who became the commissioner and invented the modern-day PGA Tour; and Minoru Isutani, a wealthy Japanese entrepreneur who is probably best known for having lost $350 million on the purchase and sale of Pebble Beach. Some of the other costars include Jack Nicklaus, Karsten Solheim (Ping Golf Company), Greg Norman, and Ely Callaway—all names you have seen etched on a wood, an iron, or a putter, among other places.

Founder of the largest indigenous Christian church in American history, Joseph Smith published the 584-page Book of Mormon when he was twenty-three and went on to organize a church, found cities, and attract thousands of followers before his violent death at age thirty-eight. Richard Bushman, an esteemed cultural historian and a practicing Mormon, moves beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud to explore his personality, his relationships with others, and how he received revelations. An arresting narrative of the birth of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling also brilliantly evaluates the prophet’s bold contributions to Christian theology and his cultural place in the modern world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Hot.Sweaty.In need of relief.That's how I felt the day I met Brad 'Pee-Bee' Carson. Stuck in a six-mile-long traffic jam in my junk car, I opened my door to get a little relief from the sweltering southern California heat. Big fucking mistake. Before I knew it, Pee-Bee, the biggest Filthy Fucker in So-Cal's Outlaw Motorcycle Club, was splitting traffic. With him headed right at me, and no time for me to react, he slammed into my open car door. The collision ruined his precious motorcycle, and sealed my fate forever.Desperate to pay him back for the damages, and avoid pissing off the entire Filthy Fuckers MC, I accepted a great paying job.There was only one problem. And it was a BIG one. I would be caring for the only man Pee-Bee answered to...His father. This is our story. Life.Laughter. Love.Loyalty. And all the rough and beautiful moments in between.
