Big fan of Dan Jenkins. Loved Semi-Tough and Life It's Ownself. But this fell surprisingly flat for me, seeming like an outline for a great book more than an actual book. It didn't have the detail, the rich descriptions, the hilarious characters or the tone of his earlier works. I never really liked Kenny Lee Puckett, the hero of the book, or saw much reason to root for him. And while I'm not a sports fan, his football books brought across the passion for the game in a way I could understand, but I didn't get any love of golf out of this. Just commentary on tournaments and players. ( )

The legendary golf novel, rereleased in a special edition with a new foreword by the author.

Don Imus said it best: "Dan Jenkins is a comic genius." And nowhere is that genius more evident than in Dead Solid Perfect, his uproarious 1974 novel about life on the PGA Tour. To some, Kenny Lee Puckett, the star of Jenkins's ribald saga, is a more important figure in the history of golf than Bobby Jones himself.

Kenny Lee Puckett has yet to find game and fortune as a professional golfer, but he keeps swinging, hoping to make a name for himself. One of many fringe players on the tour, Puckett has been no more successful on the marriage circuit. Despite the old adage, the third time isn't the charm, as Puckett seems certain to see another walk down the aisle end up in divorce court. Stil, there's always the promise of the greens, and Puckett is gunning for a U.S. Open title that could turn everything around.… (more)
