Magazines placed his face on their covers, New York City gave him a ticker-tape parade, and Hollywood made a movie of his life. Yet even in the midst of all this acclaim, myth distorted and obscured Ben Hogan. Here at last is the Hogan no reader has ever encountered. From the poverty and suicidal death of his father that scarred him as a youth, to the failure and conflict that stalked him into middle age, Hogan is the rare sports book that transcends the genre.
Combining interviews with Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, and scores of other golf professionals, as well as insights from Hogan¿s friends and business associates, Hogan traces the life of an amazing man and tells an unforgettable story.

I love the game of golf. I am now hooked on Curt Sampsons books. I began with "Hogan" and am now moving on with his other books. This book is a mini history of that era of the game of golf. I will now be reading more on the subject after learning about one of golfs greatest, Ben Hogan.

A Ben Hogan Essential
This is my favorite book - period! I have listened to this book at least 50 times and each time I get new insight into what made Ben Hogan tick. This book will inspire you to play better golf!
