"Don't get started reading this book. It will take three burly men to pull you away from it." --Bob Costas, NBC commentator "You don't need to know your bogeys from your birdies to find at least three laughs per page in this novel." --The New York Times Book Review "If you're obsessed with the 'green game, ' and it's raining or snowing, or we're under nuclear attack so you can't get out on the course, Missing Links should give you a temporary fix." --Rocky Mountain News "Snappy prose, believable characters, and the funniest take on blue-collar hacking and gambling since Dan Jenkins's The Glory Game at Goat Hill...it's social satire and pure irreverence that keep this story in the groove." --Los Angeles Times "Part Damon Runyon, part Raymond Chandler, and part Caddyshack...I was hooked for the full 18." --Entertainment Weekly "A great piece of fiction." --Denver Post
